Got a few old brushes cleaned up so they can be used again.  A few more still soaking.

From the left:  an Unknown boar; a Surrey Boar (Surrey was later bought by Van der Hagen); EverReady 100 Boar; a Century Pure Badger; EverReady 300PBT Badger; MadeRite 500PB; the Peerless Pure Badger

All of these are older brushes that were stored in another box but are now soaked and pampered and ready to go back to work.  The Peerless really looks just like what today is sold as Silvertip and feels as good on my face as my newer brushes. I also put the older Surrey next to a Van der Hagen that was part of a gift set given to me around Christmas and except for the color of the handle they are twins.

AbE:

Just for fun I took a head shot of the Peerless, a Thater Silvertip, Kent BLK4 and a Zenith Manchurian. The result surprised me.

To be vintage it must be older than me!
The last razor I bought was the next to last razor I will ever buy!

And the most recent ones cleaned up, an Erskine with a Lucite handle and a Simm's from Canada.  Both are just Pure Badger brushes but in amazingly good condition.

Superb! I love seeing restored brushes.

Fortunately, none of the brushes have needed more than soaking and shampooing and detailed clean up.  So far 15 have been brought back out for regular use and only four more left to clean up and check.

The two on the bottom far right  are newer brushes recently purchased and there are a couple that are drying and not in the picture

Perhaps even re-knot them in the future? Smile

I doubt I will live long enough for any of them to need a new knot and so far I've yet to find a new knot that is better than what they have now.
