I'm trying to restore a Gillette brush white on top/black on bottom at the top of handle it says -Gillette- under that -Large- then -made in England- my problem is on one side of the handle it says Gillette in gold but its wearing out and it appears to be maybe a decal the letters are not ingrained into the handle at all . there is no way I'm capable of painting letters on. Any ideas?

I don't know if this will help you, but I just posted here (http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showthread.php?t=190379) about how to recreate decals for someone else.

Just like my Gillette Brush :thumbup1:

The gold Gillette disappeared a couple years ago on mine an I just had Rudy put a new knot in it. Up until this point mine was the only Made in England Gillette brush I had ever seen. They look alot like some older Rooney's

I just bid on and won one that is identical.

If the original brush maker is still around, I would like to contact them and see if they would reknot it.
