The newest knot in the APShaveCo collection - the SilkSmoke knot paired with the Blue Lagoon handle - one the most popular handles for my shaving knots.Smokey in appearance, this knot gives an interesting performance. I can only describe as a hybrid between the backbone of the tuxedo, with the face feel of the Cashmere when using a light touch. A truly outstanding knot with the high quality you would expect from APShaveCo.
Diameter at widest point 36.5mm
The 24mm Silksmoke with Blue Lagoon handle is one of the best shaving brushes I now own and is definitely my preferred brush for face lathering.
The description is spot on with the brush having a very strong backbone yet is very soft when using it gently.
I do enjoy using it because of the size, for a 24mm knot it is compact and very easy to use lathering up around my beard.
Last but not least is it also looks great and the Blue Lagoon handle, it really is a work of art.
Excellent product and easy delivery to Australia, thanks Andrew.
Ordered custom blue lagoon handle with 24mm G5C knot. Strong backbone better than my omega HI-BRUSH 146138.
Highly recommended. Total height 9.5cm handle/knot together. Compact size would be good for travel too.
The silk smoke has a nice balance between stiffness and splay. I like this little brush quite a bit and use it more often than most of my other brushes. It's a handy size and whips up a lather and nothing flat. I love the blue handle too.
Works well and looks absolutely stunning.
