    Default Jagger Travel reknot - classy travel brush

    All,

    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.

    yup, pretty horrible stock, just splayed out.

    With the tgn knot its great, nice in the hand and 20mm is a nice size.
