These were at the sorting office when I got home.........
   
The Hog Hair brush I purchased a couple of weeks a go. No name just says English Made and Hog Hair on it so have no idea who made it, but it looks unused as it has not bloomed at all. Sat next to my Duke 3 for comparison.

   

And my Nimmer Mill Berkley #48 back from Mark at Simpsons after a re-knot

Both of those are very nice. If you use that boar, I would be interested in seeing pictures after the bloom starts.

It's good you sent the Nimmer Mill Berkley back to Simpsons for a reknot. I like the idea of trying to keep it original.

Its soaking as we speak. As it seems to quite old I want to give it a chance re-hydrate before I even test lather it......

I had the Berkley re-knotted in best to keep it as original as possible.

I soak all my boars between 10-20 minutes in warm water before I use them each day. Just remember, boar hair soaks in water, badger hair repels it.

I'd like to hear about the boar, too. And I really admire that old Simpson and give you kudos for re-knotting it in best badger. It looks great, and I'm sure it will lather well too.

Great brushes - re-knotting in the original is a brilliant approach and Simpson are great to work with.

If you want to check out a Simpson boar I have one in a thread here.
