This brush came in with an cheap boar knot so I decided to clean out this brass brush handle to improve it over what it was. For the knot I chose a 22 mm Silvertip Badger. Since the head was brass, I would only be able to remove the knot, clean out the remnants and accept the loft that would occur. After cleaning and installing the new knot the loft was 49 mm which is great for face lathering. It has a very heavy feel to it and one side is slightly lighter in color than the other. Overall it makes a nice new "Brass Section" for my set of brushes.

In honor of the new "Brass Section" here is a great brass section in action!

That is Standard Silvertip (not Class A).

That handle is heavy too. It is not overly heavy, but you won't forget what you are holding.

Excellent! Nicely done. I really like the heft and feel of brass, and the color you use as an accent is handsomely done.

Bravo. Encore!
