Quantity: In Stock

Marfin Number 161
If you're looking for the ultimate shaving brush, look no further than this Marfin Silvertip badger hair and briarwood work of art. Unique, exclusive, the only brush like it in the world.

Handmade by the Italian artisan brush maker Marco Finardi, # 161 is stunning. It benefits from a highly polished, entirely handmade Italian plateau briarwood handle while the knot of luxury silvertip badger hair was made in Florence, Italy by a craftsman. Silvertip hair is soft yet very durable with distinctive colouring.
The grain on the handle features swirls, sweeps and a mottled marble effect, it's so utterly beautiful.
Stamped on the base of the pebble shaped brush is the Marfin elephant logo and 'Hand Made in Italy' along with the number 161.

Brush number 161 will come to you in a branded Marfin box and a signed certificate of authenticity, signed by Marco himself. This is your guarantee of quality.

If you though Ferrari was the pinnacle of Italian design and craftsmanship, think again, this brush beats Ferrari - it's also cheaper than a Ferrari.

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.
