    I have recently received a 30DC LE brush along with a Tuxedo and Cashmere knot. I also have a Rubberset 400 I am working on that needs a knot. What do you guys think about which knot looks best in each handle?

    Tuxedo knots looks great in a R-400. The original knots were very tall loft & flat topped boar. Closest I found to replicate that NOS look was an Omega Pro #10098. It did require just a bit of glue plug reducing to fit one in my over drilled B-400 ferrule. The Cashmere knot is about the right color to pull off The Boar Look, but the loft is a little short for that NOS style. Just my opinion, but the Tuxedo looks good in the aluminum handle.

    I'll have to go cashmere on the 400, tuxedo on the 30DC LE.

    My opinion? Cashmere in the 30DC and Tuxedo in the Rubberset.

    I have no experience with either, but, I like the look of the cashmire better.

    I have to second that. If a guy wanted to go with a blond knot, I would harvest a boar from an Omega. Again, on looks alone.

    +1. Split decision so far. Looks like it comes down to what you like.

    Tuxedo in the 30DC for sure just looks classier.

    Well, I came up with a "None of the above" option. @clint64 used a Boar is his handle, and I decided I liked the look of it, so I took an Omega knot out of the handle and went with it here.
