IMPORTANT NOTE: May 2019 batch has slightly larger glue bump immediately above the knot plug. Handles need to be drilled larger than the knot size in order for the knots to properly fit into your handle. When purchasing with a Maggard loose handle, ensure that you purchase the handle that is +3mm to your knot size.
Our SHD 2-band knots are packed with 30%+ more hair than our normal 2-band brushes, and the tips are even softer. Our manufacturer claims these are “Manchurian”, but, of course, most of the terminology around badger hair types are mostly just flashy marketing terms. Point is, this is a killer knot at a killer price.
The entire line of SHD is the same loft (65mm).
The Maggard Badger Shaving brush knots are sure to be a favorite among beginners and veterans alike.
For all of you hobby brush makers, we are happy to be able to provide these knots for all of your custom brush projects.
