Are these knots oversized? Is a 22mm really a 22mm or a larger diameter? Thanks.

Bernd said to me that knot size is based on the plug, not the Knot at the base of the handle, so a 22mm is likely a 24mm at the handle...and yes as Teiste said it is OVERSTUFFED so it feels much larger.

D01 3-Band will bloom more and feel softer than D01 2-Band.

D01 2-Band will feel more compact and rough on your face.

I like, enjoy and own 4 of each in my collection - all custom made by Bernd and Rudy Vey Cool

Advice - don't buy flat top larger than 23 mm knot size unless you love HUGE SPLAYS Wink

What is D01 ST Huh

I am assuming he means D01 Silvertip.

And yes they are larger at the base of the handle than the stated size. That said my Silvertip blooms far more than the 2 band.

Not the 2 band. Honestly, I don't know if I can get past the looks of the flat top.

To answer your question, the 22 mm is the "nominal" size, the effective size. i.e. the size where the hair comes out of the handle, is about 1-2 mm larger. This will increase with knot size.

I don't care for the looks as much as my other brushes (the flater top) but man what a job it does face lathering. You get a much higher percentage of tips hitting your face.
