24 mm Silvertip w/vintage handle.

Here's one of (hopefully) two vintage restorations I'll be doing. I used a 24mm silvertip and a vintage Ever Ready handle. This one is my first, so please be gentle...

Before and after shots. I think it bloomed quite nicely.
The knot was about $18 from GoldenNib. I've also got a 18 mm pure badger I nabbed for $12-ish.
Actually, this handle was about 1 mm too narrow for the knot. I had to 'bore' out the hole to make it work, but it was easy with a dremel. I didn't even need to epoxy it, it was tight. I just did it for good measure. Gave it a nice seal around the bottom to keep water out, too.
