Especially when it has been re-knotted.

Simpsons really do some great work. My latest re-knot arrived from them today.

These are the before pics from the eBay listing

I don't have any pics of my own as I got it sent straight to Simpsons on the Isle of Man. This is what arrived in my mail box today

Magnificent, absolutely magnificent!

Most of the lap black was lost in the polishing out of the scratches but the butterscotch was retain. I have no idea how they managed that. Of course I only paid for the re-knotting - this just happens!

I can't wait to try it - pity I have to wait till my birthday in March ...

It is a 53/58 from memory. I've not measured specs or anything yet.

Very very nice brush - would make a great trade for a Chubby along with a few other things ....

Use it now. You can still use it on your birthday. Heck, use it everyday.

Nice brush.

Yeah! What a lovely brush -

What was the base size and what loft did you choose?
