That's exactly what mine looked like. Before you apply the epoxy do a test fit to make sure the knot fits all the way down into the cup neatly.
TOFLAC-U, AOM, LEMS/ Stay back! I have a Merkur, and I know how to use it!
That should do the trick, however this is a somewhat concerning failure. It seems like the previous epoxy split from itself. That shouldn't happen, ever, and as a service to Semogue, I recommend you make them aware.
Took the SOC for a spin this morning. So far, so good...we'll see how long it lasts. I also took all of the tips here to heart. I only soaked the bristles 2/3 of the way up, didn't shake out the brush, just a gentle squeeze to get rid of the excess water, and laid it on its side on a hand towel to help wick away moisture as it dries. I'll order the backup tonight to alternate with. While I'm partial to boars, I might spring for a really good, large, silvertip. BBJ
