Marfin Italian Handmade Silvertip Shaving Brush #164

£222.00

Unavailable



Marfin Number 164.
Handmade in Cremona, Italy by Marco Finardi. Each Marfin brush is stamped with its own unique identification number and comes with a signed certificate of authenticity and branded gift box.

The silvertip badger knot was made by a craftsman in Florence Italy, silvertip hair is very soft on the face yet it lathers up creams and soaps with ease. The knot is large at 26mm x 58mm, this is a substantial brush.

This particular brush, number 164, benefits from a small area (approx. 15mm x 15mm) of exposed dark coloured root which adds to the outstanding looks of this truly artisan shaving brush.

The brush handle is made from Italian plateau briarwood which was fashioned by hand and then highly polished to reveal the stunning grain.
Buy one of these brushes and you will be the only person in the world with a brush like it.

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.
