The G5C features the following:

- Hair Fibers imported from Japan

- Great backbone. The stiffer Japanese hair gives you backbone more similar to natural hair than nearly any synthetic.

- Ultra soft tips, even softer than the G5A. 

- First FAN shape knot in the G5 lineup. This allows for the most splay of the G5 lineup too.

- Fan shape allows for minimal glue bump

- Retains water in a more efficient manner than traditional synthetics (consistent throughout the G5 lineup)

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)

I already have a G5C knot and went for another one for a friend. Simply excellent and Andrew’s service and shipping is top notch as well!

I also got a second knot in a slightly smaller size. Same experience there. One of the best synthetic knots out there!

G5C synthetic

Wow! This synthetic knot is fantastic. If you are looking for a synthetic that closely resembles badger in feel and performance, look no further.

My favorite knot

I have three brushes with this knot and it is by far my favorite. It builds a lather so easily and is comfortable on the face. It has just enough backbone without be too hard.


This is the best synthetic knot I’ve ever used. Soft tips with plenty of backbone. The knot holds water very well and is the closet thing to a natural badger I’ve ever seen. I set it in a gold HC&C handle and it’s perfect. At the price point, I’m gonna have a few more in different sizes. You can’t go wrong with this product.

G5C is a Great Knot

Bought the G5C 26 mm knot with the cheapest handle in the house; that way I get the best knot possible for the lowest price.

Although I am not an animal rights activist or a vegan, I am happy that I can get the look, feel, and performance of a good badger brush in a synthetic knot. It is incredible how synthetic brushes have improved over the years.

I just wish the handle was slightly longer but I’ll get used to it.

This is an excellent knot that I highly recommend.
