We haven't changed the specs for this badger knot since the release of V5. Still, variances in hair from batch to batch leads to unique shaving experiences.
As expected, these knots are incredibly dense, with pillowy soft tips and excellent backbone. The tips are minimally treated with no hint of sliminess. If you've tried previous batches of the Fanchurian, you know that these are the hallmarks of this well established line of knots.
