Gary Carrington restored this butterscotch Hoffritz and reknoted it with a Custom 2-Band.

The pic really doesn't do it justice. The knot has a rootbeer hue to the 2nd band which is sweet when seen in person against the dark butterscotch handle.
GD did his usual magic and I could not be more please.

I'm waiting on the arrival of a couple more of GD restores/reknots: Kent VF5 w/TGN 20mm Super Badger, Readleaf w/26mm Super 2 Band, Montclair w/20mm TGN Finest XH. They can't get here fast enough, I'll post pics as soon as they arrive.

Thanks GD !

I am glad you are enjoying it. I really enjoyed restoring it and from a knot standpoint actually upgrading it.

The original knot was a three band that I found while performing a quick hair cleaning to be completely worn out (collapsed with water on hairs).

So the knot I placed in it is a custom 2 band which I find to be exquisite to the touch. This is the same knot as the Made Rite 2 Tone below.
