only one shave in but first impressions are

appearance, excellent especially for a budget brush.. in regards to functionality amazing.. the G4 knot felt super smooth, synths are smooth in general but the G4 is up there with the softest but with more backbone

the size of the handle is the smallest I have so I reckon need some time to adjust cos you got to hold it a bit different, we'll see on this but initial impressions is that for me, a bigger handle is more comfortable

its only one shave in so my opinion has a very good chance of changing but if i continue to enjoy the knot may look for a bigger knot/handle

Great summary for a first shave. I agree the size is on the smaller end but the main thing is the knot feels/lathers up good. (y)

Here's hoping my knot arrives soon as I placed my order soon after you... :nailbiting:

hopefully it comes soon mate.. which one did u get?
I just got a 24mm knot to go with my Alpha T-400 brush as I got a spare 24mm blank ferrule.

Looking at the brush options and the one you got looked best but the size put me off and that way I can try the knot out and decided whether to try a larger size.

Wishing you a Happy New Year full of surprises & Happy Shaves! (y)
