I broke down and ordered a silvertip knot from Whipped Dog.
May 20, 2015
I lightly sanded the handle and cleaned out two of the grooves of excess finish. I then gave it a coat of polyurethane and hung it up to dry. I will repeat again tomorrow.

I just sanded and applied the second coat of polyurethane. It is a beautiful handle. I am not seeing any movement on my knot though. I guess I won't see it until sometime next week.
This brush handle has very nice grain on all sides.
Still waiting on the knot.

The knot arrives. See more here.
