I have a lovely old Crabtree and Evelyn brush in a wooden handle. Served me well for over a decade back when I was on "the other side" (5-blade cartridge man {I used to hate shaving}).

But, the hairs began falling out in terrible numbers each shave. So, I put it in the drawer and there it sits—or about 95% of it anyway. Is there anywhere I can get the knot reglued, ideally in Canada? Any idea about how much it would cost? I don't want to spend more than the brush is worth.

Thanks.

If the brush is shedding hairs in large numbers it is likely that the knot wont be able to be salvaged.  You can obtain a new knot and glue it in with epoxy for little cash.  If you don't want to do that yourself, you could have one of the great artisans here do it for you.

Try Zen Shave they are in Ontario. I haven't had any dealings with them but I know a few members that have and the brushes are truely pieces of art. 
I am sure that they would be able to help.

If it were my brush I would just re-knot it with my choice of a quality badger or synthetic knot. It's a very simple procedure.

+1  If you want to keep the handle, any dremel or dremel-like tool can extract the current knot and you can order the knot of your choice to set into the handle with any two-part epoxy. Good luck. Thumbsup
