This knot holds a bucketload of lather, and doesn't hog it, releasing soap on my skin evenly from start to finish. From a face-feel point of view, I think I would have preferred a normal fan if was available, but such was not the case. However, I'm a bit disappointed that this knot is shedding like a dog. It's had about 14 shaves so far, and it loses at least 10 fibres into the soap or on my skin every day. I have 5 synthetic brushes, including an AP Shave Co SynBad (which I really like), and none of the others have lost more than a couple of hairs. If this keeps going, I might have to give up and try another knot.
Hey Mudge, thanks for the review! Just seeing this now, while it is common for the first few shaves to shed a bit, it shouldn't persist past the first few initial shaves. I back my products 100% and If it is indeed still shedding and hasn't let up at all, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will set you up with a replacement knot free of charge. Thanks!
