Hello all, I'm currently attempting my first restore and have a quick question that I hope you can help me with. I'm currently re-knotting an old Culmak brush with a TGN 18mm best badger knot. I've removed the old knot and cleaned up the cavity. I think I intend on setting the knot at about 45mm.
How snug should the fit be between the bristles and handle opening? Should it be a tight fit or should there be a bit of clearance?
Thanks for any advice.
