Shaving Brush Knot Diameter/Size

Shaving Brush Knot Diameter/Size



The Knot Diameter gives you an indication of the amount hair that has been packed into the handle. It is usually expressed in Millimetres and you’ll find that they vary from around 20mm to around 30mm in diameter.

In my opinion, and from customers feedback, the diameter of the knot doesn’t have any major impact on your shave. A bigger diameter will usually result in a bigger brush so you’d expect it will be able to hold a bit more water and a bit more lather.

As we weren’t all built the same either, a bigger or smaller brush may simply be your preference.

If forced to recommend a good first timer Shaving brush I’d simply suggest something in the middle. You’ll be able to try them all in good time….
