Ferndale, MI
Here's one I'm working on. I bought this Vie-Long horse brush a while back and was not pleased with the knot at all, but I really like the handle. So I decided to do a little transplant...

Bye bye horsey! I actually used a different bit than the one shown. This one started burning the glue/hair plug thingy. Mmmm, burnt horse hair Sick

Ready for the new 22mm Maggard black fiber synthetic knot. I had to carefully widen the hole a little bit.

Here's what it will look like when done. I still have some finishing work to do before I set the knot. It's just sitting in there right now.

My latest restore, a Kent V16 in Butterscotch that was in sad shape. The handle had no cracks or chips so it was crying to live again. A 36mm in finest from Ian Tang (Franks Shaving) that is surprisingly dense with super soft tips brought this brush back to life. Even at 36mm, being a true bulb, it handles a lot like a Chubby 3 and not so much a lather hog. Last picture for size comparison, Chubby 3, V16, and a miniature Culmak. It is a big brush.
