has anyone received this new offering? I got the g4 synth knot. very impressive handle. taller than i expected; nice heft and width. not at all like a chubby - which is a good thing. I have used it twice. i think i lost 2 fibers at most. first use it seems like it could be a lather hog. second use not so much on the hog front but i didn't get a good lather up for other reasons. the machining on the handle os peferct .. great shine so far.
