The owner was on a wait list system but is now doing drops. I would follow them on social media for updates.

You basically jumped online at the time of the announced drop and refreshed the page frantically until the brushes finally appeared, then they didn't, then maybe they appeared again after another 20 refreshes if you were lucky, maybe more like forty or more refreshes but as long as they appeared again you had hope. Then when you finally saw one you tried to get a brush in your cart as quickly as possible. Once you did the page locked up and threw you out so you got to start the process over again. If you got to the paypal point then you'd get a new error message and a trip back to the starting line. You repeated this for about four hours until enough people either got brushes or completely gave up and the traffic on the site diminished a bit. If you were sane you'd likely have given up by now, but at this point, if you managed to get one in your cart you maybe had half a chance of actually being able to get through the process and purchase it.

This was likely the most difficult item for me to get so far. Those of us that got them seem to be absolutely thrilled with them despite the difficulty in the purchasing process. The vendor was new to this kind of demand so I suspect that the next drop might be set up a bit differently as to not encounter the same issues. Will probably be several months from now as well as these seem to be a small batch kinda thing.

Yup, that’s pretty much how I got mine. I was in and out during that four hour window. I got lucky in that I managed to get one of my two first choices without putting in more than 80 or 90 minutes worth of work, though I probably would have put in the full four hours if I was able to the day the drop happened. Hopefully the next one will run more smoothly.

I must've lucked out, only took 3 1/2 hours lol. I almost gave up when I finally got to the paypal screen and then that error came up.

I just received a photo from Black Eagle. While not from the anniversary drop, this brush is from the waitlist which I have been on. It is a 25mm Lion in Coastline. It hasn’t been polished yet and it will eventually have a HT1 knot in it. I’m excited to eventually receive it.

Has anyone heard from Bradley at Black Eagle? I sent him a message weeks ago and then last week and again two days ago with no response. I have been on the wait list since December. A month ago he mentioned my brush was almost finished but I have not had any response to my last 4-5 messages to him. I hope he is ok.
