Hey Guys,

I have a VL 13061 brush which has a great handle but I find the horse hair far too scritchy for my face. I finally got shaving with a tech down pat, but one use with the 13061 makes my face fell like it had a run in with a fire breather.

I used my google-fu and found some threads of people who have re-knotted the same handle but I want a soft and luxurious silvertip knot. My understanding is that my handle has a knot bore of 23mm and a depth of 19mm.

What knot (silvertip) size/loft should I buy to make the reknotting as easy as possible? I'd like to avoid drilling the handle if possible as I have no tools and am the very definition of butterfingers.

Much appreciated Gents!

A 20mm TGN finest fan XH would be my choice. It is the best all around knot I have found. Slick and soft tips and the fan shape makes it feel larger than a bulb knot.

But that is a very subjective thing Exclamation

Thanks. I already have a TGN 2 Band brush, I wanted a smaller, softer travel brush. I've been spoiled by my 2-band at home, I wanted to try a silvertip on this handle.

Will a 20mm knot fit properly in a 23mm hole?
