    Default Removing a knot from a new Omega beech handle.

    Thought I'd make a vid on how to easily and quickly remove a good quality boar knot from a beech wood handled Omega shaving brush.
    These brushes can be found locally here in Canada for around $18 Canadian at most Shoppers drug mart. But, if you wait until they go on sale they can be had for around $15. These boar knots are excellent quality and are far better than most of the Chinese made ones you would get from Ebay or TGN. This method is pretty crude, but effective with tools that everyone has.

    **This method can only be used for the wooden handled brushes.**

    I laughed when she zoomed in on your fingers with the hacksaw. Silently saying "you see what I deal with?!"

    Thanks for posting!
