No - it is Thater new knot style....kind of a hybrid.  They first used them in the 2018 Special Edition brushes.

I love the handles, just don’t like bulb shaped knots.

I purchased the butterscotch 2018 Special Edition.  I see these as a bulb, and what Thater calls them does not matter.  What does matter is that they are outstanding knots.  The knots have the softness Thater is known for, combined with excellent backbone from the lower loft.

I just ordered one of these and am really looking forward to its arrival. The handle color is very appealing. I’d been considering adding another synthetic and this will fit nicely in my rotation. Is it also considered a special edition?

I don't think so. It is a new offering from Thater though. I meant to bring a synthetic home with me this evening but, I forgot. I'm really curious to see how they perform.

Thank you for the order Charlie!

I have one of those in olive wood....OMG...they are just wonderful. Soft, springy tips. Great backbone and 
a tightly controlled knot that doesn't bloom a lot. Just a pleasure to use.

Excellent knot IMO...and I must say I love the look of the handle and how it feels in hand.

The only thing that annoyed me was: first use, I saw some black stuff fall off into the sink while holding
it under water...it looked like hair....turns out it was the Thater lettering. Looks like a customs made brush now. Smile

I have a 2018 4125 Special Edition bulb. It's great. Better than my older 4125 fan. It hasn't shed any hairs or any of the ink used to imprint the Thater name.

I don't want to share a link to one of Phil's competitors, but they still have 2018 limited editions in fan and bulb. There is no mention of a rounded fan. It does look like the brush that Phil is showing here has longer hairs out at the edges compared to the bulbs on the other page. So maybe the rounded fan looks like a bulb. It certainly looks like one to me, but it is a less extreme bulb at least. No matter, I have a 2018 limited edition bulb and I highly recommend one or one of these rounded fulbs.

The lettering on resin handles are fine....I dont think the lettering held well on my olive wood handle. (and maybe it was just me)
Doesn't affect the superb performance in any way.

FWIW Im a lifetime fan knot guy and I love this 'fan rounded' knot.

Do you have an ETA of when you'll have another batch of the Synthetic Olive Wood one as they are already out of stock?

Thater was low on the olive wood handles when I placed my last order. I need to place an order for some other things and will try to add more olive wood synth brushes to the order. That said, it may not be until September. Much of Europe closes for a good portion of August.

They make them to order for me. The handle is the limiting factor, not the knot.

Phil, when they do have more olivewood you should get some olivewood handles with their boar knots. Those would be beautiful!

That would be a nice addition. Good idea!
