    Default Brush knot seller search

    I got a nice big handle and i thought id see if i could find a knot for it. So this morning i tried to locate Virginia Sheng and see what is offered. Im not locating the site. I am finding vigshaving. But i cant tell if its the same place. Anyone know if its the same or maybe a link to Virginia Sheng?
    The handle i have is brass with a 30mm hole. Looking for badger mainly. Thanks for any help. Im open to other places too, im just trying to keep the cost down.

    Remeasured, the hole is 31mm so a 30mm should work.

    It's just Sharpening, right?

    It says: "An eBay Store maintained by: virginiasheng", so I guess it is the same thing.

    Try Shavemac, you can literally design the exact knot you want - stiff, soft, in between, bulb, fan, flat....best knots on the market today in my opinion.

    For a brush that's going to be part of the foundation of your shave, I'd never skimp on such an important factor as the knot, especially if you've got a really nice handle for it as well. MikeB52 has replaced two knots in brushes I've had where I've loved the handle, but the knot was at best, "meh".

    I don't usually go out on a limb and heartily recommend a product but I'm going to make an exception here. Hopefully not to my or your detriment.

    I would contact Brad at Maggards and ask him about this knot https://www.maggardrazors.com/produc...dger-fan-knot/ . I have the 28mm version and have been using it daily for a month now, finding it hard to put down. It compares very favourable with my 2 Shavemac 2 band silvertip (not DO1) brushes and Simpsons QEII Jubilee Manchurian brush imo. I think the price is good value for the quality of the knot that you get. Not the least expensive but far from the most expensive.

    I did see that one Bob. Was wondering about it. I would rather buy from other than China. Thanks for your recommendation. I will look again.
    BTW, here and s the handle. Very heavy gift from one of our fine members from across the pond...
