Hi folks,
i love traditional shaving, specially with old stuff which can smell history instead of shiny, new stuff. I spent much time to search old stuff in junk dealers, antique dealers and sometime (if i am lucky) i found. A few weeks ago finally i found a remarkable brush for me but its owner is very surprising: A friend of me, mustaphaturk. My lucky moment was just a beginning. He gave me this brush as a gift. But there is another phase which is more important than find: RESTORATION.

Restoration is a very different process for me. If you do not understand/know what you do, it is so easy to break your loved stuff up. Your hands should be sensitive, your equipment should be kind and enough to work. So i should to find an specialist, entrusted person who understand this kind of work: Another firend of me, melyus. He enlarged and deepen the nest and did other works.

I share some photos about this restoration below. By the way i should say my thanks to my friends (melyus & mustaphaturk) for this great brush. Specially melyus has great work on this brush.

And very nice post. It's a worthy thing to respectfully restore old tools to their intended uses.
