Congratulations on a unique handle.  I also saw the brush on Vladimir's thread, where he mentions that it's a 30mm knot.    I assume it's Elite's 28mm Manchurian White, which measures out to 30mm + at the top of the handle.   Elite's Manchurian White knots are outstanding.  I've tried them in 24, 26 and 28mm, and find the 28mm to be the best of them all.

You are absolutely correct . It's a 28mm Manchurian knot . I have heard really good things about these knots . I'm really excited to try it out .

Let us know your thoughts on the knot.  I expect you'll like it a lot.  My 28mm Elite Manchurian White bulb measures 32mm+ at the top of the handle and ranks right up there with my top tier brand brushes.

Very nice!!! I think you'll love it. I totally agree w the previous sentiments about the Elite Manchurian. Great knot, soft tips, reasonable backbone. It has certainly earned a spot near the top of my rotation.

Yes. Of the 3, 28 is my fave as well.

That's a swell one-of-a-kind handle. Enjoy your shaves!

More kind words - nice brush, etc.  Another shaver friend has 3 brushes from Vladimir with his recent brush having an Elite knot.  He is happy with quality and service.  I get reminders to order.
