Here's the brush I ended up putting together with the 24mm horse knot. I left it unglued and lathered with it this morning. Very soft and did a decent job with the Marlborough SC. It did a decent job with the Col. Conk last night too. The loft was set at 48mm but it's not the knot for me, way too soft. I'll go with a super badger or a grade A at some point.
