    Thank you! I may have another one. ;)

    Thank you for you kindness; I started the four after dinner and finished them before bed while watching 'The Muppet Christmas Carol. I've got a very patient wife and son.

    A sad hefty Simpson Chubby 3 in need of restoring ....

    IMG_2536.jpg

    After easily removing the knot and cleaning it out I stabilized the cracks and set the loft height at 54mm of the Super High Density 28mm Maggard's knot.

    An extremely solid, beautiful, caramel Simpson Chubby #3 ..... quite the beast!

    And as always ...... more to come.

    :D

    Okay, I have a really dumb question you've probably answered 8,409 times already: where do you find all these old brushes to restore???

    Gavin, I get them all over, but commonly on ebay and trading other shavers for services. If there's something in particular you're looking for, just PM me and I may have it in my many boxes.

    Steve, you just need to wear a drooly bib when you click on my post, just in case.

    @Enrico
    I'll need to get three:
    1) to keep beside my home office desk
    B) to keep beside my work office desk
    III) to keep in my pocket for when I'm on my cell phone!
