But maybe the handle shapes for the same model vary; I really have no idea. In any case, the brush you linked to works fine for me. Also: I have no idea why the brush that was delivered to me is a "second". It looks perfect.
Thanks for the reply. I went ahead and bought one of the seconded brushes in the eBay link. Figure it's a pretty good deal regardless, and I'd rather not spend close to $100 (or more) on a first quality brush. As long as it works the same, I'm good with it.
And most reviews I've read of the Kent factory second brushes say the same thing you did: no clue what the blemish is that caused them to be deemed seconds.
Quick question, what do you mainly use the brush for? The description was rather lacking in terms of specifically what uses each side is for. I'm just looking to use mine on suits...
