At 5pm today or just before Steve is going to give me the address of the sign up list page. Its not facebook and you don't need to join up to sign up.

First 100 to join secure themselves a brush but won't be paying at this point.

The list is not the purchase, so no money changes hands until Steve is ready to ship.
You'll get a choice of handle only, so buy and knot whatever you like. A top end synthetic that Steve is still working on securing, a SHD 2band fan Manchurian same quality as the ones being sold by Maggards.or you'll be able to have the handle knotted by Steve with your own knot.

It will weigh approx 90g with its core and one of the knots fitted.

Chaps things just got interesting. For folks on here you'll also get a free stainless steel razor handle (316L marine grade) in your choice of shiny or matte. Just drop me PM when you've joined the list and i'll keep tabs of your preference and name for Steve.

Interesting topic this, however having owned titanium cycles and dive watches it's the weight/strength performance ratio which gives titanium its advantage. Unfortunately regarding aesthetics, it's not the nicest looking material and it can look quite dull and picks up scratches easily with age.

Dull? Its highly polished - it has a different shine to aluminium but dull it ain't.
