What are the differences between the standard release and the ‘Seven Samurai’ release? Different knot codes?

That and the kanji inscription I’d imagine - does the regular release have it? I haven’t seen the regular samurai brushes in the same resins as the seven samurai release.

The original samurai knots were d6. They aren't listed under the knot notes section on the site but that's what they are. And they are friggin sweet, I absolutely love that knot.

The ND6 knot is off the charts amazing.  Hopefully it will become a regular offering.  It was taylor made for that Samurai handle.

I hear good things about it and thought I saw a few of these knots during the last Paladin drop.

How do these compare to 2CSLD4 knots?

As far as gelled tips go, they are very comparable.  The ND6 has a little more backbone to me.  It's pretty much the perfect knot IMHO
