I have found this brush at an antique store the other day.

   

   

I could not resist, even at $9. Never had a Bakelite handle before. I think it used to be ivory color, but is now more like butterscotch. The cool thing about it is that it was made in Westfield, MA, which is a few towns over from where I live and it was a badger/boar mix originally. Since I bought two Omega boar knots from TGN when I was doing my Ever-Ready 100T restore I decided to use the second knot for this restore.

Here are some pictures of the restoration.

   

   

So far I really like the Omega knot. Very easy to install with its own bucket (see black ring around the knot). I de-funked both knots, but not completely. They lather real nice and already are starting to split at ends of hairs. Feel real soft, yet sturdy (little splay). I will break them in some more and then will give them a whirl in a shave.

Looking good. The base cup for the Omega adds balance to that handle.

Enjoy!
