Erskine T-300 Pure Badger Cased (Travel brush)

Hello friends. Here I show another humble restoration made by myself. It is a travel brush.

Do you remember the extraordinary Rubberset N158 I had the good fortune to find in a very good condition? Here you will see http://shavenook.com/thread-rubberset-n158-travel-brush
Also probably you remember the astonishing Druida Traveler that Javier "El Druida" made for me . Here you will see http://shavenook.com/thread-druida-trave...d-tapestry

Well, this humble brush is not so extraordinary, but once cleaned and restored, it has became very nice.
Here the pics from the seller and my pics before cleaning, a couple months ago, when I received it.

The original knot was 19x48 mm Pure Badger. I cleaned and disinfected it, but it was not performing well. It was dry and shedding a lot. Then, a new knot was needed. I put a Finest Badger 20 x 49.5 mm. It seems a lot to the original. Here the pics of the restoration process.

Oh friend, if you look at the two other threads i've put on the beginning, maybe you will want to make three trips. In the Rubberset N158 thread you will see how this little brush traveled this summer, after a lot of years sitting in a dark and damp drawer. Take a look, friend. Watch all the pics of the thread. Even in the airplane!
