I have 2 loose knots I'd like to sell together.  The first is a The Golden Nib (TGN) 24mm 2-band Finest knot.  This is a very popular badger knot that gets a lot of love across the community as one of the best values in badger hair.  It is labeled as a "bulb" shape, but is actually much more of a hybrid than a true bulb.  I was really looking forward to trying this out, but shortly after placing the order for it I came across a good deal on a much more expensive Shavemac brush.  The knot height measures at about 66mm (advertised at 67mm) and it looks to be very symmetrical as far as I can tell without giving it a few lathers and seeing how it blooms.  I have a drilled ivory Whipped Dog handle I'd be happy to set it in for you, I can get it at your requested loft anywhere from 51-56mm (I think it would perform best on the lower end of that range). The picture below gives you an idea of how it would look set at 51mm.  With shipping I paid $32 for the knot and $13 for the handle.

The second knot is a Chiseled Face 24mm Fauxmere "Plisson-Type" knot.  If you like the Plisson, you will probably really like this knot as it is very similar but has about 15% more backbone due to the extra width.  It has the same soft fibers, easy splay, and slightly floppy feel as the standard Plisson.  I've played around with a few of these knots, and find that for my preferences it does best when set to an effective loft of around 54-55mm to cut back on the floppiness.  The unset height on this knot is 67mm.  I would also be willing to set this in the same ivory Whipped Dog handle (pictured below with the TGN knot installed) with a loft ranging between 52-57mm.  I don't have a picture of this with the handle, but the bottom picture is a 24mm CF Fauxmere knot set to 54mm (left) next to a Whipped Dog 24mm just to give you an idea of what it would look like.  With shipping I paid $15 for this knot.

I'm selling both knots together for $35 shipped.  If you want one of the knots set into the WD handle it will be $48 shipped.  PM if you have any questions.  Thanks for looking.

I measured them both to be 24mm at the base, but I can certainly double check to confirm for you when I get home.  FWIW they both fit perfectly into the 24mm Whipped Dog handle.
