    I got this handle from a friend in Vienna Austria. He believes it was a display piece at one time. I showed interest in it and he just shipped it to me here in the states. It passed thru a couple people making it way to me by his friends traveling the world so it took some time to get to me.
    When it arrived i had forgotten about it so it was even more of a surprise when it showed up. Hollow brass with a stainless collar. Weighs Almost a full pound. I ordered a 30mm Badger knot for it and got the knot last night. After a quick washing of the knot and drying i stuck in it this handle for sizing. I will need to open the handle just a little at the top so i can set the knot down a little more but its going to be a big heavy brush.

    It will get used from time to time but being the size that it is, mainly a display piece. This is why I didn't buy a top quality knot for it. Its just a little to large and heavy to be an every day brush. I still haven't polished the handle or glued the knot in this picture but just wanted to show what Im working on...

    I would skip brush idea and use it as a heavy duty bullet proof "glass" for snaps/akvavit/vodka!

    Its finished. Glued it up yesterday. Polished and ready for todays shave. Too late to use as a shot glass. Lol.

    30mm knot, 55mm loft, 5 inches tall and weighs in at 14 ounces. I can see lather everywhere.

    A couple of pics of the brush. The last one is after clean-up showing the splay.
    Sure fills a scuttle!
