Soft Shaving Brush Knots
While I do enjoy a nice soft Finest Badger/2-band knot, I am especially fond of soft 3-band Silvertip knots. These are ones that I've tried and can heartily recommend.
I am listing the sizes with many of these knots, just to show what I've tried, and not to say that those sizes are the only ones that offer great features.
These have wonderful soft tips, and a cloud-soft splay.
|Elite Razors||High Mtn White|
|The Golden Nib||Silvertip Premium|
|Whipped Dog||Silvertip 22mm|
These have soft tips, but not quite as nice as the above list. But they still have an enjoyable, easy splay.
|Frank Shaving||Silvertip 22mm|
|VigShaving / Virginia Cheng||Silvertip 24mm|
Easy Splay 2-Bands
2-Band/Finest badger knots often have amazing soft tips, but can have too much backbone for easy splay. These are some two-bands that I've tried that still had easy splay.
|Stirling||Finest Fan 24mm|
|The Golden Nib||Finest Super|
|Maggard Razors||2-Band 22mm|
|Frank Shaving||Finest Badger|
