Wild olive is one of the woods that simply delivers, there is no question about it, and we love the pattern of this specific piece. This badboy is crowned with a 26 mm two-band badger knot, and I must say, I love the two-band knots from this specific supplier, I hope the next batch is exactly the same. The knot is nice and thick with proper backbone and stiffness. We have treated the bristles with a special muti (available soon) that takes it close to, if not on par with silvertips. This chubby little guy tips the scales at 78, and should consider going on a diet! It stands a 110 mm tall, and the loft is set at 58 mm, the hair length on this lil' dude is just perfect, no flopping all over the place but long enough not to exfoliate the skin down to your skullbone!
