The G4 Synthetic Knot – Brian M. from Executive Shaving reviewed this knot as follows. It is the same knot I put into my Titanium Outlaw handles except it is 28mm of loveliness instead of 26mm:
“Moving onto the knot, this is the very best knot I have ever used, it’s super-soft on the skin but due to the high density of bristles (how do they manage it?), the knot has excellent backbone. Alpha tells me that the synthetic fibres are Generation Four (G4), these fibres are without a shadow of a doubt the finest I have ever handled. Has any other brand produced the perfect pairing of super-soft tips and bristle density to this level? I doubt it.”
Pricing: This is a real discount to retail. I will place these at a well know UK vendor soon as these will retail at £35 plus shipping, that is approx $47 in the old money.
Note about shipping: Because of the COVID-19 issue a lot of my shipping has been suspended until the movement of planes improves. Sending by DHL, FEDEX or UPS etc. is too expensive. So I will have to ship by surface mail – it takes about 1 month to reach you – hence the substantial discount.
By now you should be ready. By now you should be salivating. By now – hit me up and BUY one!!
