Thanks - we shall see how they fit.

A little less expensive.  I have 4 of em.  Made in Germany.  High quality.  Bought some daubers from them too since I was already paying for shipping.

I've had good luck with my Allen Edmonds brush, and they have free shipping.  I think you can also get it through Amazon using Amazon prime.

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. ElDave, i feel the same way about shell saddle combos.

There's something special about the color/shine on those. Nice job.

Sorry if this is a dumb question... I notice light and dark colored horse hair brushes. Does the color of the bristles matter? i.e. am I supposed to be using the light brush on certain colors and the dark on certain colors? Or does it not matter?

+1 on the AE Brushes. This may be a bit overkill, but I like to have two brushes for each color shell. I like to have one that is stiffer for removal of dust and dirt, and then one brush that is softer for polishing before using my cloth. I have also found the AE polishing cloths work well for the final part of the method.

No. That is just different color horse hair.
