    I had Larry at Whipped Dog replace the knot in my Bethlehem Olivewood handle with one of his High Mountain knots, not to be confused with a High Mountain White. I will test drive it tomorrow. This is a post bloom photo. 22mmx50mm

    Nice! Those handles, I've discovered, are quite comfy to hold!

    They are! I wasn't too sure when I first saw their size, but I like them.

    It took a bit more clean up than most and takes a little longer to dry. When dry, it seems a bit scritchy. But, when I used it this morning, it was very soft and lathers like a champ. After one shave, I am very impressed.

    After shave number two, I am liking this knot even more. It is very soft but has good backbone. It is a lathering machine!

    You can compare the photos from day one to day two.

    The WD High Mountain is a great knot. I agree with you it is soft but with very good backbone.
