This #431 edition Marfin silvertip badger hair shaving brush is a rectangular shape which has unique rusticated wood markings on the bottom of the handle on each side of the brush. The top half is made from highly polished, entirely handmade Italian plateau briarwood. It is incredibly easy to hold, this shaving brush will lather up shaving soaps and creams in seconds. The super soft silvertip badger hair bristles feel incredible on the face. If you're searching for a unique and beautiful shaving brush to add to your shaving collection, this is the perfect choice.

Each Marfin shaving brush is meticulously carved from specially selected pieces of Italian plateau briarwood before receiving a highly polished wax finish.

To make these brushes extra special each one receives a silvertip badger hair knot, made by a craftsman in Florence, Italy. Silvertip badger hair is the highest grade of hair, it is extremely soft on the face and holds a remarkable amount of heat and water.

This brush has "Hand Made Italy", the Marfin logo and its number 431 stamped on the base.

Marco tells us:

Once I see an interesting piece of Italian Plateau Briarwood, I study its shape closely and imagine how the brush may look with a knot of hair. The ergonomics have to be correct as the brush has to be convenient and comfortable to use.

The root is then cut and trimmed with rasps and files before being sanded with increasingly finer sandpapers. The hole for the knot is then drilled and then the handle is coloured using natural pigments.

The handle is then sealed to make it watertight by dipping it in Tung Oil. This procedure is done in a room with a controlled temperature for a few days before it is dried over two weeks in an airy room.

The brush is then ready for polishing. No less than 4 stages of polishing is required, each stage uses an increasingly fine abrasive powder. The handle is then polished with Carnauba Wax and the knot of hair is cemented into the handle. Finally, the brush is numbered and marked with the Marfin logo. The entire process takes around 3 weeks.

Do NOT expose this brush to HOT water.

This is an eye-catching design by Marco. Its shape is beautiful, but also lends itself fantastically to lathering up and feels nice and comfortable in the hand.
