    It’s kind of a personal decision. Boar brushes have more scritch as you know, so that part is up to you to decide on when it has gotten too soft. The bristles become softer as it is broken in. But when you start havin large amounts of bristles start coming out with clumps of the base, then it is definitely time to replace the knot in the handle. Just find what size you need and set it with silicone or epoxy, silicone is easier to get out when knot replacement time comes again.
