I have an Omega brush that I purchased purely for the handle (see this thread) and I'd like to have it re-knotted.

Ideally I'd like the Semogue badger/boar mix knot to replace it, but I'd settle for 2 band badger.

Any suggestions or tips? Any recommendation as to who might do it for me?

I love that handle too Ben. I'm sure Bernd or Lee Sabini could hook you up with something nice.

I have really come to like my little TGN finest knot! Which is an option. But those Shavemac knots look amazing!

Edit: after looking at the handle I definately agree ! This will look awesome if one of those guy do the reknot!

Rudy Vey is also a good choice. He can provide a Shavemac knot if that's your preference or he can make you a brush with a WSP or TGN knot. I'm not sure if he ships internationally.

@Ben.

I find TGN Finest knots to be only slightly less dense than a Simpson two band.
I expect Rudy would do fine by you. Bob Favour would be an option.

I had Bernd reknot a Century handle for me a couple years ago and it was quite satisfactory.

So, you have options...choices.

Ben,
Like that handle as well.

I made a custom brush with a TGN 22mm Finest 2-band XH and it is a great brush.It is slightly more dense than my Grosvenor LE 2-band.

TGN is fantastic to work with as well.Thinking I might take my mixed Grosvenor and try a TGN 24mm XH if the search for an Eagle 3 doesn't happen.

Talk to Lee (asharperrazor) about his upcoming 2-band stubby brushes/knots that will be available soon at Wet Shaving Products.

I've re-knotted several of my own using TGN finest 2-band. An excellent choice a "hair" below Shavemac D0-1.

Either way, I'd highly reccommend Rudy. He'll do a great job and has access to several knot choices.

Before and after photos please?
