I’m not that good at describing the characteristics of a knot but I would compare the feel of it to my Thater Funf 2 band knot. I would also put it just below my various Elite Razor 2 band Manchurian knots and Saponificio Varesino 2 band Manchurian knot.

Has anybody used the B4 knots? Any comments or comparisons to the B2/3?

Yes. Similar to b2 in softness with a little more backbone. Softer than the b3. May be my favorite knot

Steven,

If I may ask, what is the material of that handle? It's stunning!

Amboyna Burl, when I saw this handle it knocked my socks off. Bob did a wonderful job in creating tthis handle

How do you compare the B4 knot to Bob’s 2 band Manchurian knot? I own a Declaration brush with a B3 knot in it and at least 6 different brushes with Elite Manchurian 2 band knots and I think the Elite knots are just a tad better than my B3. Just got back a Markus Herber brush that I had Bob put a 26mm Manchurian knot in. I am thinking about sending a C&R handle that I got to Scott at Declaration to put a B4 knot in but the cost is just under double what I get my Elite knots for. I know Scott ties his knots by hand but is the B4 that much different than the B3?

The B4 is very different from B3. I'd say the closest is B2. B4 rivals it's softness and has more backbone I think.
