Here's a fairly large brush in excellent shape.
Only a few lathers deep and it's obvious to me I estimated the knot size incorrectly for my taste.
I was going for a Thater style fan knot and ended up in the CH3 district...
Knot has fair backbone and some splay. Holds product and water well and lathers like a champ -
Handle is wonderfully large, a pleasure to use, and beautiful in all regards.


I need to add a 8-10 mm in loft to get to where I want to be so says Bernd... Sad

30mm x 52mm Silvertip 2-Band Knot (knot was measured & size is accurate)
Fan Shape
Handle Shape:167
Color:Jade


Cost was $180 Euros shipped (vat deducted)
Selling for $175 US shipped

Looks like a fantastic brush/knot and really lovely handle!  I have two shavemacs and I can't get enough!

Is there any glue bump in the knot?

Nice brush! FYI, I'm sure Bernd didn't mean add 8-10mm to a fan knot... You would lose most of the backbone! Now a bulb on the other hand could work. Though I would go just a tad lower for a bit more firmness, myself.

No detectable glue bump in the knot... just a lot of dense badger hair.
