Marfin Number 162
Pebble shaped, highly polished, amazing grain, silvertip knot, completely unique, this brush has it all and more.

Marco Finardi the artisan, Italian based, maker of sensational shaving brushes has created a work of art on brush number 162.  The grain is a mix of swirls and sweeps. The round contours of the brush allow it to sit comfortably in the hand.
The brush is stamped on the base 'Hand Made in Italy' along with the number 162.

The 26mm knot of silvertip badger hair was created for Marco by a craftsman based in Florence, the colouring on the tips and the softness of the hair confirms its pedigree.

The brush comes to you in a smart, Marfin branded presentation box.

Marfin number 162 is the only brush exactly like this in the entire world, if it's uniqueness you're looking for, this is the brush for you. Expensive? Yes, but worth every penny.

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.
