What would you say is an affordable Titanium Shaving Brush?

So i've been having many many discussions with Steve of Alpha Shave Co regarding the use of different metals for shave brushes. And one of my comments to him was how it would be blooming amazing if there was someone who could bring together a project to produce a Titanium brush that was not only sexy looking, but also amazing quality and more reasonably priced than anything else on the market......

My thoughts were even more focused on this after seeing this example of our last GB brush the Outlaw in Titanium.

So I set Steve a challenge:
1) Scale down the Outlaw a smidge to a 26mm (more people appear to favour this size as a sweet spot)
2) Make it a price low enough for Titanium that would have you thinking how is he doing this.

Steve has created a page to get peoples thoughts and get a sense check of his ideas.

So do you guys think.
Would this just be another high end brush that only a few want?
Or is it something that would make you say Wow at that great price give me 2 lol.
Are my assumptions even correct that 26mm is a sweet spot for many?
Do any of you own Titanium hardware?

I have a few titanium things, but not brush handles.

In contrast to my recent burst of razor purchases, I haven't bought a brush since I don't know when.

However, I would certainly be interested in a Ti barbershop-handled 26mm brush, at a reasonable price. I've switched over to synthetic knots, so that would my choice.

I don't "do" FB or other social media, and am thus unable to comment there, but I like the idea. Thanks for raising it.

I'll keep the thread updated, I believe it will be offered with a SHD fan Manchurian or a high end synthetic. It will probably be offered as a handle only as well

Sounds good. I'll stick with the thread on TSR, rather than repeating myself on "the other one", but please take it that my interest as expressed here, applies equally there.

I may say wow that's a great price give me one but I will first need to know that price, I have a figure of £250.00 in my head for the whole brush but I fear it will be more than that and rule me out. Keep us informed, thanks. I to do not do the social media thing so all info will need to be gathered here. P.

I know it is not a selling thread - thanks to Mem though for mentioning it. The complete brush will come in at way below $250... I am sure Mem will let you know.

I have my Ti Paradigm SE and the brush would be a nice pairing, at the wow price! :) P.
