    Yep its a real rubberset handle. My antique store guy set it aside for me. I get first pick of his blades, and I always tell him to put aside brushes too. I told him to keep stones too, but his pickers dont seem to ever find any of those.

    And yes its the two band SHD knot.

    Those are lovely knots. I'd get another if I needed a knot.

    Update: That fan shaped knot is a gem! It has a nice backbone and makes a nice mess of lather with whatever soap I use. Its kind of funny that the rubberset handle gets hot when you let the brush soak, preshave. I am very happy with it, and would definitely recommend that knot to anybody that was doing a rebuild.

    Looks good. I love the fan shape knots (haven't tried one from Maggards yet but i hope to soon) Can't see why they would even make the bulb ones any more. Bulbs just don't fit my face!

    I wont post to this again, but I have to say that this brush should be standard issue for everyone. It is so far superior to every other brush that I have. It carries a ton of soap (and water when you are rinsing it), and has a nice back bone for raising a good lather. If I had sunk the knot a bit deeper into the handle, it would probably have been a bit stiffer but wow I love this brush.
