I have just taken delivery of a batch of synthetic knots directly from manufacturer. These are the best synthetic knots I have ever tried. I was never a big synthetic fan until I tried one of these. Some call it "the game changer", I and a few fellow brush makers that shared in the purchase of these with me decided to call it Black Onyx Soft Synthetic or BOSS knot. It is 24mm at the puck, which makes a 25mm-26mm brush and is all black in color. The tips are incredibly soft and the most amazing thing about it is the backbone. This thing performs as well as some of the best two band badgers I have tried. It's quite unbelievable.

So, without further ado I introduce my newest batch of brushes made with this knot. I have also acquired some very nice faux tortoise shell stock and am very happy to combine that with the BOSS knot. I think they look gorgeous together in an understated way.

First brush available in my Etsy store. Faux Tortoise Shell resin and BOSS knot.

Brush Dimensions (approximate):

Total height: 102mm
Handle height: 50mm
Loft height: 52mm
Knot: 26mm
