Well, finished three up and bloomed them out this morning. Might polish handles might not, sometimes I like the character.

Here they are. Right to left: TGN 20mm extra hair Finest, TGN 24mm extra hair Finest, TGN 24mm extra hair silvertip (regular, not grade a).

Is the green and white an Ever Ready? I have a red and white that looks similar that I bought to do try a restore on.

Edit: oops my mistake I need to look at the pictures better.

The black one is an Opal and the black/orange one has no markings or evidence of markings.

Those look great. I bought an old Erskine to try and restore. It was a sythetic brush, and when i went to drill out the knot i think i melted them together. I cant get the remaining bristles out. Pretty frustrating!

That middle one is particularly gorgeous.

I think so too, and I've used the green/white and the black/orange to shave already. They are both nice but I really think the black/orange with the finest knot is more what I'm looking for in a brush. Both made great lather and felt good on my face but there was something about the finest. :thumbup1:

Once I cut one from the heard I will probably sell/trade the other two. So you may get a chance at it.
