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 13mm 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**

…. to the other brushes in my den.
Let’s think about this:
Finest badger hair
Ultra dense knot at 28mm
Lofted correctly for what it is
Loaded generously, this brush outperformed even the softest and densest *other* brushes in my den while face-lathering, and it wasn’t even close. All the while during my shave, I wasn’t thinking “ok, another brush with treated tips… *yawn*); rather what I was thinking was “this is turning even mediocre soap into a truly special experience.” And the handle is a weighty, high quality resin.
All in all, dollar for dollar, this brush is a brilliant value.
Keep up the superb work, AP Shaveco!
For $66 you will not find a more luxurious brush. The handle is good enough. This is my third gelousy and the one I would recommend most because it is huge and just the right combo of softness and backbone. However, the 24 and 26 are also great.
