This weekend Juan is also setting a 25mm Muhle synthetic knot into one of his BSB-1 handles for me.

Yes! Fun and activity continues at BSB for your benefit. Given our Mediterranean character we thought that after 21 hours of soaking, a change of water would be nice, and what better than orange flower water for food use!


BSB style.

Hello friends. After four days of soaking, the knot was dried with no hurries, and closed properly to be ready to glue. After the water of orange blossom, the smell that remains is very pleasant. Enjoy!

Friends, we are still working on preparing bristle knots. Today in BSB we have extracted the knot of an Omega brush for Proraso, who came with us on the boat this past summer from Sardinia to Barcelona. We have prepared and adjusted the base for the BSB. This knot is somewhat shorter and will be 55-56 mm high. It takes six hours in mineral water inside the glass, and now it will be submerged at least three days or four in orange blossom water. With this height, it could be installed even in the small BSB-2 and does not detract. There you have it presented in a handle of work. The handle is not impeccable. It is one of our work handles. Enjoy!

Now it is soaking in that perfumed water that I like. It will be three or four days. Then several days of drying before being installed on the brush.

I really like the Zenith boar knots.  Here you can see a couple Zenith knots next to a different 400 homage with a Omega boar knot.

I'm interested in reading the differences between the Omega and Zenith knots.  I see the difference in  color.   Are the Zenith bristles finer?  How does the face feel compare?
