The Marfin 157 is a chaotic assembly of geometrical faces that swim together in their complex alignments. While this brush is ornate and delicately cut, it has the spontaneity of a natural rock formation. Its transition from swirls to sharp rays of caramel brown contribute to its solemn, highbrow aesthetic. The brush handle is like a wooden diamond: flat-faced, sharp-edged, and peppered with organic chips. It sits comfortably in your hand, portly at its base and narrowing toward its head. Despite its busy curvature, the 157 sits upright and stable on your counter-top. The man of endless complexity will be a proud owner of this artisanal shaving brush.
Drawing inspiration from luxury pipes, master brushmaker Marco Finardi crafts the handles of his brushes from the finest Italian briarwood. His silvertip badger knots are made exclusively for him by Florentine craftsmen. Each handle is created entirely by hand from selected pieces of briar. To ensure durability, the wood is soaked in citrus-scented Tung Oil, and then polished with caruba wax.
Finally, each brush is stamped with a unique serial number, and then packaged with a hand-signed note from Marco Finardi himself, bearing his wax seal. Buy a Marfin brush, and know you hold a truly artisanal product, crafted with passion and care.

The handle is a work of art in a class by itself really. The business end is typical 3 band badger. it would have been nice if they used Manchurian grade which has more backbone. The included hair is on the floppy side though I've seen much worse. I'd say it's borderline floppy. If you like hair with good backbone this isn't it. This isn't a knock at the brush just be advised depending on the type of feel you like.
