    Default My 2nd Restored Dubl Duck Brush

    This is my second DD brush that I have restored, I am beginning to enjoy this more and more...
    Rich/Zib saw the last one I did and asked if I could do another. I found and old beat up one on E-bay and drilled out the old knot cleaned it all up and re-set in a 24mm SilverTip from The Golden Nib... I actually like the way this one came out better then my first one, as I set the knot a bit lower so this should have serious backbone with an Overstuffed knot and a lower loft height...

    Great looking brush with that "classic" look. I especially like the fact that you set the knot a little lower. Fantastic work again Glen!

    Ah , must be a triple duck judging from the pic hehe.
    Looking good. Love those paintbrush style handles.
    I reset my TGN 24mm the other day to a lower loft. Since I bought an Omega boar the ST's seem a bit limp

    The brush arrived the other day, and I whipped up a mean lather with it this afternoon. FWIW, I used T&H 1805, one of my favorite's. I love the fragrance. Anyway, The Paintbrush style handle is awesome to use. If you have the opportunity to pick one up, I highly recommend it. It's like making lather with a power brush. It just feels really good in your hand...

    Great Job by Gssixgun.....
