Just out of curiosity why do people covet butterscotch handles so much? I purchased a simms shave brush from a local store for a few dollars, the top is black bakelite? and the bottom is a butterscotch. When I got it home I noticed that the bottom unscrewed the threads are in excellent condition I removed the old bristles a dremeled it out it"ll get a 24mm but i might go 26mm. What does everyone suggest. Also should I epoxy the bottom into place before or after I put the new knot in, or should I not epoxy the bottom maybe just screw it on tight?
