I looked through the forums and found a couple recommendations for knots; AP Shave knots and Cashmere knots. Before I pull the trigger, I'd like to see if there are any updates on knot recommendations. I have been encouraged to turn a brush handle (thank you to a B&B member) for my oldest son's girlfriend. I can't find a decent, yet low cost, orange brush in synthetic, so here I am. I already have the resin from woodworking, so all I need is a knot and orange coloring. I've turned wood bowls and pens, so now is the time to learn about turning shaving brushes in acrylic (first time using a resin instead of wood).
