Any chance of putting up a couple of links, I have been buying badger hair from china, but never found any decent boar knots. The only Chinese boar I've seen have been put together as like badger hair using quite a short loft. I prefer a lot longer knot if boar.There's a massive selction of quality knots from China that would be my first choice.

Many thanks for the above link, that was what I found when searching. What I was after at the time was similar to Nisse, I ended up removing the knots from Omega brushes and using them.
Do you have a contact for Virginia Sheng?Nah! it is the one I recently got wowing me with a nice mix of soft tips & backbone from the start go when face lathering next up might be a home made handle with a Virginia Sheng badger knot. Nice looking handle on the Zenith boar with most likely an Omega knot.
