My first rehab/restoration. A Black and Ivory Ever-Ready 100T was located during an antique store walk through. The thing was hollow and well-used.

Wet, the emptiness in the middle of the knot was glaring...

So, I removed the old bristles, opened up the handle a bit from 20mm to approx 22mm

Cleaned up the handle

Ordered the knot from Maggard Razors

And set it in the handle with Silicone, not epoxy

I'm letting it cure and set for 24 hours before using it. I'm also crossing my fingers.

Looks great.

What is the advantage of silicone over epoxy?

With the silicone, I can remove the knot a bit easier than if I use expoy. In fact, if I choose to replace this knot, the B&W won't be ruined by removing it. Pull and twist.

This was my first. Warm water and borax soak. Rubbed it dry and clean with a dry wash rag. No Flitz, nothing abrasive. Slowly dremmeled he interior edges to fit the knot I bought and set the knot at the loft I needed.

I’ll be doing an ER 89 after Christmas with my dad.
