Gary, I notice the SilkSmoke gets more use for you than the Synbad restore/reknot you did a few months back. Do you mind giving a little info on whether you prefer the Silksmoke and why? I am enjoying my Synbad but do like the look of the Silksmoke knot.
Regards,
Tim

Good question Tim. I will start using the SynBad as an alternative to the SilkSmoke and refresh my perceptions of the differences between the two before I post about it. There are differences, but lately I've been using three badger brushes and the SilkSmoke, so my opinions on the two synthetics side by side are a bit hazy.
