This is my first post here, although i have been lurking and do hold B&B responsible for excessive spend on DE gear.
My new job will involve a lot of travel so the wife bought me a travel brush for my Birthday:
This is a lovely looking brush. 20mm pure badger knot. Horrible to use! the knot is so loosely packed, itchy and floppy i knew i wouldnt use it as is. I ordered a TGN 20mm finest with extra hair.
1st step, chop out old knot and dremel out the old plug (which was horrible job, avoiding damaging the anodised surface meant i had to go so slow).
1) old knot removed, new knot ready, 5min epoxy in old cap.
2) TGN finest 20mm epoxied in
3) Brush complete - looks great and i went for a short loft for face lathering.
4) Brush packed away for travel duty
