It is cute, what's the knot size?

Appears to be around 14 to 15mm

Edit: I don't think it's ever been used. No sign of old soap and just a damp cloth cleaned it up nicely. It's in excellent condition!

Here it is next to a Century which is what I consider an average size brush vintage handle w/ 24mm knot. I also tossed in the Zingari brush since it's a replica of the larger Rubberset handles.

Freddie, I'm curious as to whether such a tiny knot actually works.

It’s probably as functional as a Wee ScotSisi

I'm curious how it will do. Smallest knot in use in my collection is a 18mm. Shouldn't be too drastic of a change.

Maybe it's for manscaping?  Before such things were talked about in genteel company, of course.

Real men back then, real men don't "manscape".

True.  I had forgotten about the Wee Scott.  The smallest brush I've ever used is the Omega 40033 (the Mighty Midget).  That brush has a tiny handle with an excellent 24mm knot.

This thread inspired me to get out my tiny brush.
It's a Proraso brush from Amazon (part of a Proraso travel kit kinda thing).

Knot size is, I estimate, 16-17mm.

It's stiff, and great for face-lathering with LaToya.
Fun!

Perfect travel set Bax, and I bet it will stand in any day for a great shave.

I gifted several Wee Scots over the years but recently reacquired two 40033s. Head and shoulders over the Simpsons IMHO. Boar Brush jewelry.

I've tried to use the smaller brushes but my hands can't do it. Makes my hands cramp holding and using them. I'll probably end up selling this one for that reason. It's nice, but I know it would sit and not get any love.
