I wanted to post pics from my first two restores. CyberJCM pif'ed me two great handles, and I restored them with Golden NIB knots.
The white brush has a 24mm Finest knot set at 49mm loft, and the blue brush has the 24mm super silvertip set at a loft of 48mm. I can't wait to try them out.
This is the what they looked like to start with
I drilled out the old knots with a drill press
This pic is not the greatest, but it is after I sanded and polished them up.
And finally the finished product.
