A couple of years ago, I restored this Rubberset 300n with the nasty nylon knot, It got a 22mm Vulfix boar knot and was a companion to one that I did with a 2 Band TGN finest knot. My friend Jeff really liked it so I sent him the badger version (dubbed Chubbz 1) and later sent him this one (Chubbz 2) as well so he would have a set. I was remiss about it at the time, but later grew to miss it. This morning I sent a note asking if he would be willing to make a trade. He told me that I ruined his surprise as he saw a post I made a few weeks ago and was planning on sending it back to me. It really made my day.

I really dig that handle and yearn to see the badger version.

He hasn't been using this one. IIRC, he uses version 1 with the TGN Finest and a mixed knot 404.

Just very generous of him to send it back my way.

Thanks Ben.

If the tracking number is to be believed, the big brown truck of happiness should be delivering the brush today...

The Rubberset 300n made it back in one piece. The only problem was that the Vulfix boar knot was shedding a lot. I recently picked up a bunch of Omega brushes on the BST and this knot is from a 80265. It is 23 mm set at roughly 53 mm. Nice Density and nice soft tips.
