Great looking brush and a neat idea adding the nickel for weight/balance/height!

GD,
Did you epoxy the nickel to the knot and then insert, or epoxy the nickel into the handle, let set and then epoxy the knot?

Epoxy the nickel to the handle and let it dry for about an hour.
Then epoxy the knot into the handle making sure that you have coated the exposed top of the nickel and sides.

Remember that you are using nickels or other metals for weight and as shims for height. Here is a diagram showing how to apply shims in a handle.

Some of my knots come from TGN and some come from other e-bay vendors. The Silvertips look alike in the box I place them in. I mark them according to size and type when they go in.

Thanks Gary. That helps a lot. Spent the evening last night drilling and dremeling out knots. Haven't ordered their replacements yet, but looking forward to doing so and this is useful knowledge.

A very beautiful brush; I have not seen any handle rod stock quite like that before. It's gorgeous.

I purchased a simple black-handled m7 style Muhle v2 brush from Oscar and was blown away by the fit/finish of the product. Much better than one of the most referenced custom brush makers around...
