What I like is 24 - 26, fan loft 52. (Shavemac, Manchurian, Thater, TGN, etc Nathan Clarks Envywhite loft is set at 54).  I would like to get your opinion of this knot (WSP 2 band superfine) on backbone, softness of tips (scritch?), loading, lather flow through, shedding with my dimensions in mined. 

I have read reviews from 2, 3, 4 years ago nothing current, what I am interested in is today's current crop of WSP 2 band superfine knots not yesteryear.

Thank you for your help,
Steven

Don't know anything about WSP. Can't help there... Have you looked into the Epsilon line of brushes?

Thanks for the suggestion but I am asking about this partticular knot so I can decide if I want to use it in a custom brush

Hopefully Celestino chimes in but he has nothing but great comments about WSP's 2Band superfine knot. Try PM'ing him as he is very helpful and knowledgeable about their knots. WSP does provide quality knots as I used to have the Stubby with an HMW knot.

I have an older 28x51 and a new 30x51.
The older version has broken in nicely over the past two years and is one of my favorite knots.
I have only used the new knot once but I can tell it will be a favorite of mine. The new version has less backbone but is still great for face lathering, it has very soft tips that may be a little softer than the older version and the flow through on both are great.
As I said, I have used the new version once but it is rare that I enjoy a knot as much as I did this one on my first use.
I say buy one.[Image: d17ca8ae175b4fdb182277aaa62fd186.jpg]
