This brush is near and dear to me for two reasons. It was my first butterscotch find in the wild, and because a close friend got it for me as a birthday gift. Finally got to restoring it. The first knot I recieved was shedding badly so Tony at TGN sent out another, no questions asked! He really takes care of his customers. This is turning out to be my new travel brush. I opened it up to take a 22mm knot. Enjoy! Brush: ER 750 Knot: TGN 22mm Short Loft Best Badger Polish: Some toothpaste (worked surprisingly well) Before: Knot was pretty blah.
