The G5A features the following:
- Natural-looking synthetic fibers imported from Germany
- The hair on the G5A is very similar to that of other big name high end synthetic knots. For reference, it’s most similar to the Omega EVO.
- This knot has been packed with SHD density to make it the densest possible knot for it’s size (20% more hair).
- Excellent backbone. This German hair uses a wavy style hair to clump the tips and gives it more backbone while still retaining that amazing synthetic softness. It’s a truly luxurious experience with this knot.
- Very soft tips (approx. very soft to above average softness compared to other synthetics)
- A common problem with the G4 knots you’ve seen on the market is that they tend to tangle in the center after use. This problem does not occur in the G5A hair!
-It retains water in a more efficient manner than traditional synthetics.
NOTE: These knots contain and inherently shorter height (approx. 65mm) compared to other synthetics (68-70mm). Keep this in mind when setting the knot, you'll need a slightly more shallow hole!
Base Diameter: 26mm (
± 0.5 - 1mm)
The knot is great. Very soft while also having plenty of backbone. Overall it's great. Andrew, the owner, provides amazing customer service. I'll definitely be back if I ever need another brush!
The Knot has a good density and feel but it is very short. I ordered the 26 mm and my knot was 61 mm high. Respectively the brush feels stiff and not as good as I hoped.
The service from AP Shave was good.
Really love this knot. High tier synthetic, and you really get what you pay for. The tips are soft, the color is very natural, and the fibers hold their form very well. Since placing the knot, (and 7 uses) I have only lost 3 fibers thus far. Your mileage may vary, however I just want to illustrate that you should have a low chance of getting a terrible, defective knot. Works so well, comparable to all the other mid/high range box store synthetics.
This is one of the Best Syntetic knots I have tried yet..I highly Reccomend G5A or even G5C great are Excelent Choice..
Great Customer Service Happy to Support ApShaveCo..
This knot really holds water and soap. It feels like soft badger only better.
