I don't feel the need to have thicker knot than 24 mm. I don't like them thinner than 22 mm.

I will go with the 22mm - 24mm as well... I will admit my Omega 631's 19mm is one of my favorite brushes though....

I'm wth the 24mm. Nice balance, and it works for me, both in the face and in the bowl.

I have a few 22s that get no use. I'll take 24 and up to 30, depending on what the brush is, how long... . I like the bigger brushes, although not long and floppy.

I voted for "Less than 22" as the closest answer.

I would have to say that my favorite size for badger knots is 19 - 22mm, and my favorite brushes are Semogues in 22mm (Semogue doesn't offer smaller knots).

When it comes to boar, I like larger knots, in which case I would say 22mm and more. My favorite boars are Semogues in 22mm (1305 and 830) and I also like the barber model 2000, which may be 26mm.

+1 I seem to gravitate to this range of knots no matter the hair, boar, badger, or horse. In this range the knots start to have a a bit more backbone ( I hate floppy brushes) and the knot holds enough product for at least three passes.

I like 22-24MM regardless of type. Anything larger makes it more difficult to apply around restricted areas such as around the ears (head shaving).
