Determining the characteristics of a brush can not be done from the Knot Type only. You need to also consider the Knot Diameter & Loft Size. 

Generally all YAQI brushes are of a "BULB" shape, they have found this to be the most desired shape. In the range you will find a couple of "FAN" Shapes as well as some "BULB" shapes that verge on a "HYBRID" Shape but still lean more towards the "BULB.

The difference between them all…

As shaving is a very personal experience and you will find that shavers have different preferences in their brush. It is really a matter of experimenting until you find a combination you really like.

To start with though you should look at the above measurements and ask yourself a few straight forward questions.

Apart from the obvious characteristics that relate to size there are also more subtle characteristics that come from the combination of handle size, knot size and method of assembly. These more subtle characteristics will give the brush its “backbone” a term given to the resistance the brush will give you when pushed against your face or bowl.

There a many good YouTube shavers out there that have done some great comparisons of YAQI Brushes.
