Wild olive is one of the woods that simply delivers, there is no question about it. This booitjie is fitted with a 26 Bodger knot, this is a hair mixture of 75/25 Silvertip/boar. The knot offers a high degree of stiffness, and is a bit softer than boar with better water retention characteristics. This chubby little guy tips the scales at 60 grams, stands 104 mm tall, and the loft is set at 53 mm. Don't you just dig the little phone on the handle? Only saw the scuff marks above it when I placed the pic, a testament to my ageing eyesight or nifty camera?
