Finished up these 2 today

All re-knotted and cleaned up. One Made Rite with a new 20mm Black Badger and one Stag with a new 18mm Master Badger Silver Tip both from TGN. These cleaned up pretty nice. I kind of wish I could have set a larger knot in the Stag but I really didn’t want to drill out the vintage handle to make more room.

Two beauties.
 
Both very pretty. I’ve been afraid of buying any vintage brushes with handles like that Eveready. The vertical flutes have to be a ***** to lightly sand and polish. Was that to difficult to do?

I say go for it! It wasn’t too bad. I use Micromesh sanding pads. They seem to work great for this type of work for me. The kit I have goes from 1500 to 12000 grit. If there are any deeper scratches or dings I use a wet/dry sandpaper progression then the pads.

Awesome work on those brushes!
I have only restored two so far - Ever Ready 200T re-knotted in finest badger and a Fuller using a Timberwolf synthetic.

How do you like the Master Silvertip? I just set one in a handle today, but didn’t see much commentary/feedback about it here before I purchased it.
 
Did we ever get a feel for the Master Badger?
I'm enjoying it! Mine is 18mm and the initial impression was that it was a little scritchy with a decent backbone. After about 5-6 shaves, I stopped noticing any scritch but the backbone softened up some. Not the most luxurious knot, but comfortably utilitarian. I think it’s the perfect match for the vintage handle.
