...had to give this little stinker a haircut. It was a NOS Ever-Ready with a boar knot but for the life of me I could not get it de-funked. Tried everything and while the smell got a little better, it never went away to a tolerable level.... I couldn't even place what it smelled like. Not normal animal funk, that is for sure.
I already have a nice Fuller at home with a boar knot that is breaking in nicely and a Hoffritz with a badger (such a nice brush, my favorite right now). I don't really need another brush but I love the swirled marble look of this one. And I wanted one that has a longer handle than the Hoffritz.
The hole is 22mm, so I am guessing a 20mm knot? This is the one I am thinking of picking up: Golden Nib Finest
