    My curiosity got the best of me, wondering whether Shavemac was the only brush manufacturer that would replace a badger knot with a new one. So, I asked Vanessa at Kent, my favorite brush company, whether or not it was a service they offered. The response...
    Hi Michael. Vanessa is on a course for a few days so I am covering for her in that time. We do offer such a service and the cost would be approximately £25–30 plus post and packing. So glad you like our shaving brushes!

    Kind regards,

    Now, all I have to do is find a really nice brush handle! Wouldn't it be great to find an antique sterling or ivory handle - and fill it with a BK4, 8 or 12 silvertip knot?! :D

    Very cool! Thanks for the heads-up buddy.

    Now, are you going to line up a secret "code" for us? :D

    Hmmm. Didn't think of that! Maybe GBK1777 will work? Or maybe they'll offer a TSD discount! ;)

    Does Kent know that this brush you speak of, was not originally a Kent brush. In otherwords, I am wondering if they only have this service for Kent brushes.

    well, they offer re-bristling for old hairbrushes as well, so I think they might also offer this service for other brands of shaving brush. Just a guess.

    I specifically asked about "any" brush, including antique shop/online auction finds, old ivory or sterling handled brushes. So no, it does not have to be a Kent brush. Go for it!

    All this talk about Kent brushes is giving me a familiar itchy feeling in my credit card. :rofl
