    Thanks, guys. I shaved with it this morning and was extremely pleased with the performance. Wait until you see the post-bloom photos...that little thing has exploded into a giant mushroom of badger hair! Will post something tomorrow or Saturday.

    Very nice!

    Do you happen to know how old was that handle?

    Sorry...not a clue. Probably older than me, though...and I'm no youngster!

    My collection of restored brushes is starting to get a little out of control, so I'll probably be unloading some soon on the B/S/T forum. You can rest-assured that this one will NOT be included in that lot!

    Beautiful brush. I'm completely sold on the TGN Finest XH knots. I like them better than my Simpson Duke 3 in Best.
