So I recently received a Kent BK12 and was taken aback by how big the knot is and how much of it there is. So I decided to see which one was my smallest. I do have one of those travel sets that has one of those very small brushes. But wanted to compare more regular to regular instead of travel set to regular. Chubby 3 included for comparison....

   

Top shot....
   

from the side it looks like the chubby has about the same width of hair, but the Kent has it beat by a fair margin..


So what is your smallest and largest knots? Show them off....

So, is the small one to apply lather to each individual piece of stubble? Smile How does one use a brush that small?

I hope that no Wee Scots were injured in the process of taking that picture.... that was a great way to show the difference in size.

Thanks for sharing.
