I got a box of 12 knots from VS yesterday. This is the post bloom pic of the 220mms silvertip.

Yes, I bought a package of 6 boars, and then individually a 22mm silvertip, a 25mm finest, a 28mm finest and a 20mm synthetic. I guess that's just 10, lol.They look good, were you able to order a mixed box?
I have a finest (2 band) 24mm VS in my Rubberset 400 and I detect zero scritch. It's pretty similar to the silvertip in that regard. It may be that part of the tradeoff for the low prices is somewhat inconsistent quality. SO far I am 2 for 2 on great knots, I will let you know about the others in this package over the next couple of weeks as I have opportunity to try them.I too really enjoy VS knots, the 2-band pure is a bit too scritchy, but the finest and silvertip knots are great. The Super knots are a little scritchy but tolerable. Overall, the best value in knots right now and I have a strong suspicion that many WSP knots are manufactured by VS, but I have no evidence other than similarity of appearance and performance.
Hi Kristin, I don't want to clog up someone else's thread, but I am getting some brushes in a lot which includes the top part only of the same brush as above., once I have it I can assess its condition and decide on a course of action.@Boaz, Hi, I'm Kristin new to forums I hope you don't mind me asking about your double duck handle. you siad you have the top part but are missing the bottom. Did it break off? was a seperate componant and got lost/disappered sometime before now. The top part what is the material? I'm assuming that it's plastic/bakelight something in that order - yes? So you need to go to a brush maker for a new bottom. Are there other resources to get another one "for parts". Thanks for your help, Kristin
