    Default Klenzo Re-knot

    This is a Klenzo USA Badger Cased B-1054
    I received this not a while ago with some other bits
    The knot was thinning & not to pleasant so decided to give it an update.

    SO I cut the existing 20mm knot flush to the top of the handle with a Stanley knife

    I saw 2 distinct hair types or colours anyway in the plug, the center 10mm was darker than the outer edge so not sure if this is Badger around boar or something else, but the original brush was stiffer than my Granddads Boar brush

    Drilled out the old plug with a 20mm Forstner drill bit
    Then cleaned up the hole & enlarged the throat with 16mm stone plug type bit in the Dremel
    Re painted the inner top edges black to make the original plug

    New knot is an Ace Shaving 20mm Finest Badger Bulb Knot
    Size is 20mm plug but 22mm at base of knot
    So I set it at 44mm as this was double the knot base (not the Plug) see how it goes

    Still debating whether to try re-paint the gold stamp or not ?

    Looks fantastic, and I think you'll be happy with the loft you chose. Very cool old handle.

    That's a very cool looking old brush that now looks ready to go for a good many years to come.
    Nice job!
