Sumi-e Paintbrush With A Repurposed Antique Barbershop Handle
This Sumi-e horsehair brush has a restored & repurposed antique shave brush handle, from pre-1920. The bristles are extra long (5" in length) and were made using my highest-quality premium black horsehair. The brush handle is hardwood and the paintbrush has a metal ferrule.
The premium black horsehair is very absorbent, super soft and has great flex. It will make strong and expressive marks or finer lines. The tips are natural, uncut, and pointed.
The handle has a beautiful patina and shape. The handle is in "original" condition.
