This is it. Gel tips taken to the next, consistent level. This specially treated 2 Band Finest Badger, in Super High Density (SHD) knot is designed to hook at the tips, consistently creating the perfect and highly sought after hooked, gel tips. There simply isn't anything else comparable to this true style of consistent hooked gel tips on the market right now. This knot will be sure to make all your other badger brushes "Gelous"!
Some Notes during trials:
1. This knot retains a lot of water at the tips, I would recommend using slightly more water than you're used to when lathering with this knot.
2. This knot takes a while to dry, and it should be dried naturally. Please DO NOT rub the tips heavily against a towel, or any other surface to expedite drying. All the tips need is to be have any excess lather and water squeeze out of the tips, and then be left to air dry for a few hours (ideally overnight, or during the day).
3. The tips feel crunchy when they are dried after a shave. This is because the tips hook together. Run the knot over your hand and it will return back to normal.
4. When dry the tips sort of feel like velcro. This is normal due to the hooked tips. When wet, thats when the magic happens.
**The knot is set 12mm deep in this handle. If this does not work for you, I can also send the knot and handle unattached so you can drill the handle deeper and set the knot to the depth of your liking. Please message me for this special request**

The only two bushes I use. The Gel knot is fantastic..
I finally had an opportunity to use the brush after my initial break in process. The brush is very appealing to the eye. This is my first experience with a gel-tipped brush and I am quite impressed. The brush easily creates and holds more than enough lather for a 3 - 5 pass shave. The knot is large yet quite easy to use to distribute the lather. I would highly recommend this brush to any interested purchaser.

This is my first badger brush, and my new favorite. It holds water like a sponge and the tips are incredibly soft. The backbone is perfect for a face or bowl lather. I loved this brush so much that I immediately ordered another one (20mm). Thanks Andrew!
Beautiful knot, soft with backbone and of my 23 badger knots has become a favorite. Beautiful selection of handles and Andrew's great service. 24mm
