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: 28mm

Loft: 65mm

Plug height: ~9mm
Average max width:  +1mm – +3mm from advertised size

    This knot continues to impress me. I have tried over 100 brushes including some of the best such as brushes from The Varlet, Declaration (b5-b8), all the Simpson hair options, all Brad Sears hair options, all Morris and Forndran hair options including pre Sears collabs, many Paladins etc… More often than not I prefer Maggard SHD brushes over my other brushes. These knots are exceptional. They are very soft and I believe one of the best characteristics of the Maggard SHD is the flow through and ability to hold onto a large amount of lather. I find this 28mm knot to shine at a 50mm loft. I would recommend to those who prefer substantial backbone that the loft be lower. Possibly 46-48mm but I am not one of those people so I cant be sure. As one of the reviewers also said, this Maggard SHD knot is in my top 3 favorite badger knots.

    Maggard’s SHD badger knot is instantly in my top 3 favorite badger knots. The 28mm knot blooms into a behemoth, which feels much larger due to its fan shape and hair density. The hairs have ultra-soft white tips that gel on first use. When set to Maggard’s recommended loft, this knot has enough backbone to provide a very light scrub that is quite pleasant thanks to the soft hair and gel tips. Fantastic dense and pillow-soft badger knot. Easily worth the asking price and then some.
