I wanted my M6 to match my M7 as far as the "SIMPSON" logo goes on the M series. Plus, my sticker looked silly and kept falling off. Anyways, here is the result. I will post side by side photos when I get back from thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Chris

great mod to the handle, much more balanced visually. The original actually had the engraving of 'M6' and 'Best Badger' over the sticker which was what this one lacked. But this is the modern M7 look now.

A+ for the extra crazy effort in getting it sorted this way.

Did you even use the brush yet? Still looks new Wink

Had it done. Used it multiple times. After I use a brush I let it dry. Then I place it in a cylindrical tube made from a folded piece of paper towel. Helps keep the nice shape.

Was it Simpson that did the i graving or was it someone local? I have been thinking of doing this to a couple of my brushes.
Thanks

Very well done. It looks as good as if it came from the factory that way. Would you mind sharing who did the work and what the cost was? Just curious...

Chris was good enough to send it back to us and we had the handle engraved for him.

It came out rather nice.

Have a great weekend guys Smile

Sorry for the late response everyone. Thanksgiving holiday kept me away for a bit. Yes, Mark over at Simpson did the engraving. I think when it was all said and done (shipping both ways plus engraving) is was about $80-90 USD. $15 for me to ship there, $15 for it to come back to me and 50-60 to have the engraving done. Pretty sure that's what I paid. I'll double check on the engraving part.


Came out excellent!


Chris
