To compete with the übersilberspitzen offerings from VP Leonhardy, Shavemac, Heinrich L Thäter, etc., our little no-name-and-older-than-the-Titanic German brushmakers have finally releneted upon their insistence for small brush diameter and produced this stunning example of a slightly larger class piece, officially designated as a 22mm knot, but when we measure here it comes in at 23mm - I have no doubt there's some German way in which the 22mm is anal-to-the-core correct (perhaps that's the diameter when formed and tied but before it is glued and set), but boot on the ground here at TSS it measures ~23x56mm.
The quality of workmanship on these hand formed knots cannot be surpassed, at any price; one may want a denser or sparser knot, a shallower or deeper setting, firmer hair, longer hair, a more loft-heavy ratio, a more diameter-heavy ratio, whatever...but don't say you've seen better workmanship, it simply doesn't exist. This is the very model of "expertly formed" as they decree it. There's no annoying 'glue plug' here, you get every single millimeter of the hair you can see in a flexibly soft and scrubby perfectly functioning dome. The heads are flawlessly figured, in fact the very best 100%-handmade knot heads we've seen; if these folks could get their hands on the ~Manchurian/VP Leonhardy >7cm 2-band hair stocks (both VP and Simpsons assured that >7cm hair stock with silvertip quality/thick bases/large dark bands is scarcest badger item of all) and cared to lathe a handle themselves (like many old German brushmakers - and unlike Simpsons and Shavemac, to name two - they outsource the handles and focus on brilliant handmade knots) we'd have a small licensce to print a small amount of money.
ALL parts of production are done sans automated machinery-the knots here are weighed, filled, formed, glued, and set in to handle with only the hands and ancient tools unchanged even a century ago. The handle here is a barrel-shaped acrylic piece which is made in Germany and is best suited, in this one opinion, to those with larger hands.
