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**
Handle Height: 55mm
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
I have only used this brush once. Love the handle, feels great in the hand, and looks good too. Did a face lather nice soft brush with back bone. This brush will break in and be great.
This was my first badger brush after only using synthetics... You can really feel that it is a quality product, the handle in the picture didn't appeal to me but once it arrived the colors of the handle match with the brush very well, very nice look to it overall i would say. It did take me a little time to learn as synthetics are different than badger brushes, but after i adjusted my technique a little i was very very pleased with this... I have already ordered 2 more brushes from Andrew, can't wait to get them, great products!! thanks!
THE best brush in my collection! I use it to face lather, very soft feel from the tips and enough backbone to create a great lather. Third brush from AP Shave, this is my go to out of the 7 in my collection. I've lost 1 hair on the first use, but none since. Amazing quality!
An awesome, dense 24 mm brush that blooms larger then some 26 mm I have.
