Where are people getting these knots from?. I personally would like to buy 2 of the remade Everready brushes being made by fine and have maybe a Plissom and EJ xl synthetic but in both. Any suggestions?

Most are buying the L'Occitane brushes and cracking the handle. It is very easy. I have done the same with the black fibre Muhle HJM knot and a Grooming Co syn brush.

This is most likely the case, it is what I have done with these two Ever-Ready handles:

That is the only way to do it unless you get one of the brush artisans to buy you the Plisson and set it into the handle of your choice! Good luck.

I'm not sure where some artisans are sourcing these knots from, but I continue to see them pop up in their offerings. My Romera synthetic is really nicely made. It has a 24mm knot made with the same fibers as the Plisson. However, the knot's loft is a little low for my taste when it comes to a synthetic, so keep that in mind if you have someone set the knot for you.

They probably have a source in China for these knots, I would presume. Lovely brush, by the way!  Thumbsup

Those sure look like the Plisson bristles. I have one of the Plisson L'Occitane Cade brushes, and I'm waiting to see if the handle will eventually break and/or the knot will pop out. If so, I thought about getting it reset.

I recently picked up one of the Acetate Burgundy handles directly from Plisson, so I'm pretty happy at the moment.

Just be careful not to disrupt the brass ring. They are a major pain in the butt when that happens. That knot is really in there. Make sure you have some string on hand. If you do what Zach said and carefully remove the knot you should be fine. I was a barbarian and messed it up  Rolleyes

The Plisson cup limits any play you might want to introduce in loft to a custom handle. Removing the knot from the cup is difficult, as noted. OTOH, The Grooming Co. knot is easier to remove and the loft can be set up to 54mm for those wishing to retain most of the Plisson splay. You get similar lathering qualities and face feel, and the extra density doesn't screw up flowthrough.

I checked out that website. The selection is huge, but the only problem is that the minimum order is for 500 or 1000 pieces. I enjoy making brushes, but I'm not sure I enjoy it that much.  Biggrin
