I only know of two vendors that carry horse hair knots. They are very difficult to find.

1. PC Woodcraft.

2. Heavenhorse / Anping County Shengwei Animal Hair Products Co., Ltd. Horse hair knots are not listed, but are available for special order. Simply email Baowen Chen to discuss you needs. I've ordered from him before. He's slow, but reliable.

His knots are more than acceptable. However, do not expect Shavemac, Thater or Kent quality at those prices.

At least as recently as late last year, Vie-Long will only sell completed brushes. Knots were not available for purchase.

Depending on the size of the brush handle you were planning on using some of the vie-longs are so inexpensive a whole brush purchase and knot removal may even be an option, Especially if you can get one of the $19 vie long brushes that has been lightly used in a BST or WTB for prob around $15 or so shipped i would imagine. Your other option might be the Turkish Horssehair brushes where they can be had extremly inexpensively and those handles arent exactly suoer sturdy Knot removal in one of them would be very easy id imagine.
