Anyone have feedback on his Estate Badger? And if there is major difference or preference between the 3 types of knots that he offers: Select, Estate, and Super. He offers Select as the base knot; while the Estate and Super are more expensive. Looking for a 26mm.

There is a pretty detailed breakdown of each knot type on Brad's site under the FAQ menu (www.bradsearsshaveworks.com).  That is a good start.

I only have the Estate Badger, which I love.  I like dense knots with a lot of backbone and scrub.  The Estate knot fits this description but with soft tips.  I don't know what knot type you like, but if you don't like what I just described, steer clear of the Estate knot.

The Estate knot is amazing. Very dense, great backbone, and really nice, soft tips.

Here is mine!

The Estate series in my opinion is a denser knot with more backbone than the select. The estate knots remind me of a Simpson Manchurian. I really like the 3 band super in a lower loft, but at a higher loft, I find it floppy,
