Attached are pictures of an Albright long handle brush I recently restored.  The knot is an extra dense Finest Badger. I set the knot a little lower than originally planned. Pretty surprised that sinking the knot a few MM deeper in to the hole impacts the brush backbone. On its own, the knot is pretty floppy - set as deep as I did, it has a nice backbone. It should be nice for face lathering. I hope the picture with the lines and numbers convey the starting and ending size. I picked up the knot from a gentleman in California who does not remember the vendor from which he made the purchase. $18.00 (shipped) for the knot and $14.99 (shipped) for the handle resulted in a world-class brush. Plus, a lot of fun re-setting the knot and doing the clean-up. Additionally, except for the clean-up, I left the handle as is. After the first lather, the knot bloomed from 52mm to 75mm. An amazing knot. I believe the knot does the handle justice. Displayed with a Barbear Classico Texugo for size comparison.


Thanks for looking,
Ed

Very, very nice, Ed.  That bloom looks great, and the total brush was a great bargain indeed.
