Product Description

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.

Knot Size: 26mm

Loft: 65mm

Plug height: ~9mm
Average max width:  +0.2mm – +1.0mm from advertised size.  Keep in mind these are hand made items and the adhesive will vary from knot to knot.

Recommended to drill out handles at least +1 to +1.5mm from knot size.  Knot depth suggestions:   22-24mm:  15-16mm     26mm: 14-15mm   28-30mm:  13-14mm

    I put this knot in a heritage collection handle and it is now my best brush. Very soft and alot of backbone . Extremely dense and gels nicely. Only used it once so it will only get better. Maggards also has unparalleled service and quick shipping. I will be making many more purchases.

    I left a review for the 28mm SHD fan but I wanted to do one for this as well. Among the two 28mm knots and two 26mm knots that I have received there are differences. The 26mm versions do not clump up and gel as much as the 28mm ones do. There is still a gel feel but not to the same extent. The 26mm ones have slightly darker tips than the 28mm ones. The backbone remains the same with all of them which is about a medium amount of backbone across the board. Density is the same. I compare these to my collection of around 70 badger brushes. Of course all badger knots tend to vary from another but this is just my experience with what I have received. My preference goes to the 28mm ones but that is just me. The 26mm brushes I have are still very much enjoyed and are still very very nice!

    All I can say is I LOVE THESE KNOTS! I’ve got hand tied knots that these beat and I’m so crazy about them that I ordered three more 26mm Fan’s today! These beat out my super high dollar knots, and are gel-soft when right out of the box.

    I have compared firsthand with 5 separate Declaration knots and can promise you that the 26mm SHD is larger and more dense than the 28mm DG and all my SHD knots have gelled so far which is more than I can say for all my DG knots. Long story long, the Maggard SHD is the best knot available at any price.

    Yes these fit will in a Wild West Brushworks handle. No need to fiddle with the loft.

    Sorry this is not a review. Has anyone put this knot in a Wild West Brushworks 26mm handle? Did it fit with good loft and sufficient diameter for the handle?

    This is an incredibly amazing knot. Super soft, super dense, gelled up!!!
    It became a giant just after my first used.
    I recommend the socket depth for handle 20 mm to get wonderful backbone.
    Basically, it is the best knot I have ever used.
    Amazing prize. Thanks a lot to Maggard Razors…
