    Best option is to send Bernd an email on his website, requesting one.

    Those 400's are awesome! I just contacted Bernd about getting a 28mm bulb Unique knot set in a jade beehive.
    Sure hope he can do it..

    Question from a noob to this forum, what is the "Unique" knot?

    I asked the same question a while back. See screen shot below. Sorry I couldn't sort out a link.

    If you look in the Brush section there is a shavemac classification thread at the top of the page.

    Thanks - I'm a huge fan of the D01-2 band knot, have three brushes with that knot, and soon to be a fourth, as well as one Aluminum Rubberset #3 with the D01 knot in it, much less "scritchy" than the D01-2 band.

    But brushes, like soaps and creams, can't get enough of...they...complete me. :)

    Unique is a knot with (no pun intended) unique density. It is designed to be an intermediate between a standard 2 band silvertip and a DO1 2 band (please check out my 'Shavemac classification' thread). Loosely to imitate that of early Paladin brush knots (made by Lee Sabini) and Epsilon 2 band badgers; with regards to density. Not a wall of badger that is forceful on the face, more a natural splay without the need for more backbone or to jeopardise flow through.

    Thanks, that sounds like a very nice brush, I have 3 M&F's and they are all very greatly, but I know Shavemac is superb in consistency so I guess I'll have to wait to see if there's another group order - dang nabbit, this is what I get for being slow to the show. :)

    Did anyone order two brushes with the same unique knot? If they did, did they find any variation in density between the two unique knots?
