I'm testing the waters. Offering knots is certainly a distinct possibility in WSP's future, but the price would be higher than TGN's offerings. I only single out TGN because there's only 3 knot dealers I know of and they are the most expensive.

I will pay more for sure.
Im afraid that the TGN finest badger knots arent as dense as they used to be (at least,a 20% less dense!) and thats my fav knot from TGN.
The silvertip grade A and super badger I have are well packed,but the finest have lowered the amount of hair per knot,both in 18/20 and 22 mm.

I think it comes down to what the market will bear. TGN provides a very good knot that will satisfy a large segment of the market. I would love to be able to offer a higher end knot for the upper end of the market that wants, and is willing to pay for, a better knot.

I can see marketing the brush handle alone, with the availability of several knot selections, ultimately landing at several price points.
