I think I read somewhere that they might be Shavemac knots. Not sure if true, but Shavemac knots are excellent. I am pretty curious about Saville Row's myself.

What types of attributes do you like in a brush? I've had a couple Savile Rows including a 26mm. It's got nicely soft tips and medium-high density with a fairly high loft. It's very comfortable and efficient but to me it kind of feels like a floor mop on the face due to the loft. I prefer lower loft options from Thater, Shavemac, etc...

The knots are Shavemac made to specifications by Savile Row. Some swear the knot is a bit denser than the regular Shavemac.

They are wonderful brushes, top quality. They are a change from the ordinary in that they are very soft with mild/medium backbone. It pampers your face rather than scrubbing it.

The 3824 was a perennial favorite until 2-band madness hit.

It is a funny thing, isn't it? It's almost getting rare to see pictures and talk of 3-band nowadays.

I would surmise it has to do with the less dense knot which has more pronounced backbone and easier facilitation of releasing lather that are characteristic in most 2-Bands, nowadays. 
I am sure most folks are content not to wrestle with a Chubby 1,2, or 3 size knot, any longer.  Biggrin
Personally, I still love the two Chubby 2 Super knots I have, as they offer such a different feel to my 2-Band knots.

Here's a pic of a newly acquired three band in finest from shavemac..
For the price I feel it's one of the best bang for the buck..

I don't know if the knots are really made by shavemac but they are absolutely luxurious. It honestly just feels like a cloud on your face. No flop, scritch, scratch or anything like that just pure luxury on the face. I too prefer two band badger but my 3124 silvertip is one I will never get rid of.

I understand the argument made behind Shavemac making Savile Row brushes, but for my own experience, I've had 4 Savile Row (still have 2) and there is something about the hair that is different from what you get at Shavemac. I think it might be the density, but the long lofted Savile Row brushes are magical. I've gone through over a dozen Shavemacs, and I like my Shavemacs, but how I regretted selling my long lofted SR3824 but bought one back. Same as I remembered my old long loft Savile Row. Got lucky and added a long loft Savile Row 3118. For me, I feel that Savile Row is distinct enough to classify it outside of Shavemac regardless of if Shavemac made it. The short loft was nice, but man the long lofted versions are magical to me. That is just my opinion of it from my own personal experience.

I have both the 3326 and 3824. Both outstanding performers.
