I finally restored this Taylor of Old Bond Street shaving brush with a TGN 18mm finest badger shaving knot.

This is the result :

The knot is set at 50 mm and has a really firm backbone.Also the tips are soft,but not extra soft and the flow is OK,nothing like a 3 band badger hair.

The density of the hair is good,but not high by any means.It has lost only 4 hairs in all it uses so far,so its not a shedder.

I didn't put too much epoxy to remove it easily if I had to put another badger hair knot.

Well,its not what I was looking for at the beginning (20mm knot and 3 band badger hair) but it sure looks good,and its a soap killer.

It does look great Teiste! You should be proud. Smart thinking by not putting a ton of epoxy in it in case you want to switch it up later.

Technically, no.
They are made by either Vulfix/Simpson or Rooney.

Hi Teiste

Yet another very nice re-knotting project Thumbsup

Overall the brush looks very! nice, but I really like the handle shape, very clean and elegant looking.

Take care, Mike
