I asked a while back for advice on the loft setting for this knot. I received it today and messed around with an old handle to test fit the knot for checking loft. I got a really good dry fit at a loft of 48mm and decided to test lather and shave with it.

It lathered MWF easily and was great face lathering using circles to build lather and painting strokes to spread it. Not as soft feeling as the Simpsons Chubby2 synthetic with a 50mm loft but soft enough with just a hint of scritch and good backbone. I did two passes.

At that loft setting definitely not a synthetic brush for everyone's tastes but it will do me fine. I don't think I will bother trying any higher loft settings.

For the price I don't think their pur tech knots can be beat. Very very similar fibres to the Muhle but more densely packed. Enjoy mine.

I picked one up off ebay as well and was impressed with the quality. I haven't installed it permanently in a handle, just playing with it in a few different restores I finished trying to decide which one to make it's home. Got mine in about 8 days.

Have you decided on what loft setting you will be using?
