The hits keep on coming!
matt i'm in the same boat as you at the last count it's 13 in line for re-knotts and then i go and spend the cash i had put aside to get some knot's on a simspons best which i have been assured by the guy is unused but im pretty sure i don't need....If you look at my prior pictures you will see that I have many handles in line waiting to get knots. Maybe buy the time I am 50 I can have them all knotted. I might have to sell a few since I have been buying more all the time. I love the way these handle crack and darken too. I think that's what draws me to these handles.
I guessed you had got your hands on a simpsons as your sig had changed as for the price maybe a little high but if that includes them doing the work i guess its not too bad with what you have already in the brush i'd be inclined to get it done by them...Yeah since I bought that wee scot last night it has jumped to the front of the line on being reknotted. They quoted me $84 for a Silvertip. Seems steep but worth it. I asked for a super badger since thats the original knot, but I haven't received an email back from them yet.
It is a nice looking brush i'd assume the knot is usable and if the price doesn't include a clean up of the handle i'd haggle with them about the price, isn't the seller of the brush a member here as im sure i've seen that name on the forum..Yeah sorry check the main page I found a wee scot in super badger. I'm hoping the original knot is usable. Ecause they don't offer super badger in that knot size anymore. And I hope for that price they clean the handle up too.
