Marfin Number 256
If you don't like to run with the crowd, if you are your own man, a true individual and someone who appreciates fine artisan craftsmanship then this must be the shaving brush for you. Number 256 is rectangular shaped which tapers in width towards the base. It features a groove on one corner and slightly rounded surfaces all over.
Marco Finardi who made this brush using hand tools only is based in Cremona, Italy. Marfin shaving brushes are sold worldwide to buyers who are looking for unusual, handmade and unique shaving brushes.
This brush will arrive with you in a branded Marfin presentation box and a certificate of authenticity which has been signed by Marco. The certificate also features a Marfin wax seal.

Silvertip badger hair is a very high grade of hair, it's super-soft on the face; it will easily lather up shaving creams and hard soaps. The silvertip knot was made by a craftsman in Florence, Italy.
The handle is made from solid Italian Plateau Briarwood which is dark brown in colour. The natural grain on #256 sweeps and swirls majestically. Marfin # 256 is the only shaving brush like it in the world.

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.
