For you Muhle synthetic brush users, which knot size works best for you? I have listed both creams and soaps in case one size works better with either.

You can vote for more than one, it is multiple choice.

I only have the 21mm, which I use for travelling, but for a home brush I'd definitely get at least a 23mm, Johnny.

I have a 23mm that works great with soaps & creams. I probably wouldn't want to go bigger, so I feel like a 21 or 23 would be my personal sweet spot.

25mm is easily my favorite, with the caveat that mine have shorter than stock lofts.

Both the travel brush and the 25mm brush work with both creams and soaps for me. OP, I screwed up and should have checked both 21mm boxes instead of the 19mm boxes.

Regular 23mm STF V2 is a very stiff knot perfect for hard soaps.

I have the 23 and will use it mostly for travel. If it were to see regular use at home, I would go to the 25.

I use the 23 mm STF v2 and 25mm STF v2 for travel.

I prefer the 25 mm by a slight margin, but the loft on it is tad too high for face lathering.

I appreciate all the feedback and votes that have been given. It seems I might have ordered the wrong brush. I ordered the 19 mm in the picture above as a travel brush. I guess time will tell.
