Suggest a knot

Post by Shave4Fun » Mon Mar 28, 2016 1:22 pm

I am looking for suggestions for a knot
Fan or bulb?
I prefer some type of badger to use with creams

The base hole is 22mm
The handle height is 45mm

I looked at The Golden Nib and did not see a fan shape I liked.
What other sources would you guys consider?
Thanks,
Roger

What are you looking for in terms of softness, backbone, etc.? You have to give us something to work with. Absent details of what you're looking for I can only suggest genarally: I find one of the best all-round knot to be the TGN 2-band finest; shavemac also makes great knots in a variety of grades from pure to 2-band Silvertip, but their finest grade is hard to beat.

Thanks, Brian. I was quite vague. I would like something to work with soaps or creams. Don't say that up front. I will look at TGN you suggested.
