In the thread linked below, I discussed some brushes that were either purchased, restored, or created with 2 band knots.

http://shavenook.com/thread-4-x-2-band-a...-summation

Out of that thread came a determination of a knot supplier (who will remain nameless) that supplied the knots for the following two restored brushes.

The first is a Made Rite Butterscotch handle that when it was purchased had already had the knot removed. However, it was not the desired knot size, so some additional boring out was necessary to provide the hole suitable for the desired knot.

The second is a Made Rite Amber handle that had to be completely cleaned and the knot removed. The hole was also expanded to fit the desired knot.

Without any further delay, I present to you the Made Rite Brothers which are now a part of my personal collection.
