About the TSN LE brush. Since knots will be provided by Lee (M&F brushes), can I assume this will be just the same as getting a genuine M&F brush?

I'm not sure which knot grade is going into the LE brush (Blonde?), but it would be the same knot that you would get if purchasing an M&F brush with a similar knot grade.

I am only going by what I've seen and read, but the handles will be better. Higher polish, engraved, color is limited to this LE, known who and how they were turned and has a Limited Edition numbered handle.

It won't be a genuine M&F, it will be a genuine Paladin. I'd say that's better.

I apologize I can not remember specifically but in one of Ken's responses he goes into detail about the knot and all of its characteristics......

Based on the PK-47 that I own from the first batch and the many M&F brushes I have have had I would say no. The knot is definitely a Lee knot though I have found that there is variation amongst his. The handle quality on the Paldin is higher, quite frankly the best I've seen and the LE looks to be even better than mine. I don't say this to denigrate Lee's handles because they are quite nice but the Paladin reflects more attention to detail and craftsmanship.

I can't imagine improvement on perfection, but a beautiful offering is a beautiful offering and can't be denied.
