Has anyone ever seen an Everready this small???? The knot is 17x44. Bought this without any size reference to reknot but didn't expect it to be this small!

That's a cutie pie of a brush! I've seen a 16mm knot somewhere...

Here it is: http://thegoldennib.com/index.php?main_p...cts_id=832

The knot actually turned out to be in incredible shape so no need to replace. I think I'm really going to like this tiny gem Smile

Nice gimmick brush. But not more than a gimmick to be quite honest.

That must be a reknot. All of the Ever-Ready brushes in that style came with a boar knot (at least that I've seen).

I've had a few of the small ERs and the model # is 200CC. I reknotted one and one still has the original boar knot, which needs to be replaced.

I also have a small, "Howard" shaving brush and it has the original badger knot - roughly the same size as the 200CC. It's is superb shape and a power house (eats soap).


IMO, these brushes are far from being a gimmick. While small (think Simpson Wee Scot here), they are very effective. I imagine they were sold as travel brushes. I use the reknotted ER 200CC and the Howard brush when I travel. Always surprised how much lather they produce. I can easily get a three pass shave from them.

Nice little brush.

I've owned a tiny Plisson that was even smaller! Despite the size it was still entirely usable (as I'm sure yours is).
