After many years of faithful service in the rotation, the knot just came out.

Looking over past threads, it sounds like marine epoxy (either JB Weld or Loctite) is the way to go. Anything else I should know before trying to repair it?

I had something similar happen to me with a different brush.  I used Marine epoxy.  Spread it evenly and ensure that you don't go too high or put too much on the sides so that it creeps up over the rim of the handle or where it is visible on the knot and you should be good to go.

I've use marine epoxy on some restores and haven't lost a knot yet. Make sure both surfaces are clean and dry, don't use so much as to having it ooze out, follow the directions and you should be good to go.

It's simple gluing. Ive used jb weld on some omega knots and never a problem. A little goes a long way. Clean the surface first with a little alcohol.

Richard, the link doesn't seem to be working.

Thank you, that shows how much epoxy glue I need. (As opposed to sealing wax or chewing gum - let's see who gets that reference without a search!)

I had a knot fall out on me years ago, before I was on any shaving forums and I just glued it back in with ordinary Elmer's glue. Worked fine. You don't have to over think this. Just glue it.!

Epoxy glue is what I always used with perfect results.
