The B-400 arrived a day early. No problem. I am happy it is here. It was well protected in the bubble wrap envelope.
Here is the first glimpse of the handle. Tom made an extra ferrule for the handle so I can have two different interchangeable knots.
Here I just stuck a two-band badger and a black synthetic knot in the ferrules for fun. I will have to make a decision what I want to use. I may still opt for a boar for one. I have a couple of synthetics on the way. We shall see,
