Chicago Barber Brush

Friends, here I introduce another brush in my arsenal. A "New in Box" brush. Another piece of Americana in my hands.
I do not know if I'll go to re-knotting it. First, it will be intended some uses to see.
Well, you know I love barber brushes. This is probably the barber brush with the bigger handle that I have.

Specs
Handle
Height 97 mm
Diameters from top to bottom 36 - 31.5 - 35.5 - 17 - 35 - 27 mm

Knot Boar Faux Badger 22 x 55 mm

Total height of the brush 152 mm
Total weight 63 gr.

Nice. I don't know if it's just the tint of your image, but the dark band of the badger hair also looks purple.

Thank you friends for your kind comments.
I have used it, and maybe the original knot will remain in place. I also have nourished the wood with a couple of coats of tung oil. Now it looks even better. Pics upcoming in some days.

Friends, here more pics after nourishing the wood with pure tung oil mixed with oil of sweet orange 3%.
Take a look at the grain.
