I just got pretty cheat a very nice Ever-Ready Nylon Lucite 500N handle, and I was very lucky that the knot came right off cleanly. No drilling whatsoever. I just started pulling it with pliers, and it dislodged. A few extra pulls, and boom. Clean handle. Now, I'm searching for a really good knot for it. I've used Maggard Razors and Ace Shaving badgers, but I'm not really sure if there are any new good sources or manufacturers on eBay. Any recommendations? Here is the handle. Just need a nice polishing and restoring the letters with rub-n-buff.
