    What size knot to buy?

    Would a dremel work well? So if shoeboxshave states my Omega Boar 10018 has a 23mm knot. Wouldn't 22mm without any modification?

    What size knot to buy?

    I am going to replace two brush knots with new ones from TGN. One brush handle is vintage. The the other is an Omega boar that I never liked. The vintage I am measuring about 19.125mm using a tape measure. The omega I believe is supposed to be 23mm but I measured about 22.25mm. Is it better...

    Autumn/Winter cream choices

    I have and love TOBS Rose. The weird thing is my Rose cream has always been very firm. Most of my other creams (AOS, Speick, Proraso) are all very soft almost like toothpaste while my TOBS Rose is firmer closer to butter.
