Brush #434 is a delightful pebble-shape. The stunning polished wood on this handle is a light caramel brown, infused with swirls of darker mahogany colour. The natural grain of the briarwood combined with the golden brown hues has a sunburst effect which is absolutely stunning. Marfin has painstakingly carved out little circular shapes which are black in colour. The shape of the handle lends itself perfectly to sitting in the palm.
Marfin #434 comes with a certificate of authenticity which has been signed by Marco. 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 434 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.
Beguiling, stunning and a brush that any man would love to own.
