The 2BED knot is named after its characteristics. It looks like a 2 Band Badger knot, hence the 2B. The ED is the extra density this knot carries. You put that together, you get the 2BED knot. This is the FIRST FAN KNOT IN THE APSHAVECO Collection! The hair in the knot made for a true fan shape, unlike some of the flatter fan shapes I've seen in plenty of synthetics. This knot stands out with it's excellent splay. It's similar to the Cashmere in terms of softness. The hair is slightly thicker than the cashmere near the base I find however, with a bit of subtle backbone when splayed. A truly outstanding knot with the high quality you would expect from APShaveCo.
The Elegant Emerald handle has a beautiful green appearance, with ripples of other colours throughout the handle.
Great Brush. I concur that the brush splays similar to a 2 band. One star removed because I think the brush loft could be dropped a couple mm. The fan isn’t extreme like I’ve seen on some other brushes. I might drop the loft myself and have an awesome brush to my liking.
