Received my TGN 24mm 3 Band Nylon Knot and epoxied into the WD Ivory 24mm handle. Fit perfectly without needing any alterations to the handle. Gave it a test shave this morning and it performs and looks very similar to the FS pur tech 24mm knot. The TGN isn't perfectly bulb shaped but may round out with a few uses. It may be just the shipping that temporarily has the knot a little oblong. The prices of each knot is very similar. Shipping time is much reduced using TGN and I believe the customer service and quality control is much better with TGN. Here is a few pictures of the TGN and FS knot. The olive wood handles are FS 24 and 26mm and the ivory handle is the TGN 24mm.

The knots do have similar appearances ... it will be interesting to hear your observations on performance.

Although I've not tried the TGN synthetics, I'm very happy with my FS ones.

Wow ... those olivewood handles are lovely!
