The only one ever made, #182 is a quintessential Marfin brush, boasting natural briarwood filaments that twist and flow across the egg-shaped handle. Hand-carved by Italian artisan, Marco Finardi, this luxury shaving brush started out as a block of plateau briarwood, hewn from briar shrubs in the Italian Apennines. After being carefully carved into a palm-fitting handle, it was soaked in a citrus scented Tung oil, lending it a natural, rich stain. On its lower belly, a rugged patch of dark nodular wood shows, flaunting the plateau briarwood’s visually striking rough edges.
The silvertip badger bristles that crop up from the wooden handle are the highest grade of badger hair, hand-selected and discerningly cut to form a rounded surface, ideal for working a rich lather. Soft against your skin, yet firmly planted, this artisanal brush guarantees a smooth and effortless lather application. Distinguish your bathroom with this handsome piece, and transform a daily routine into a luxurious experience.
Marfin brushes are a purely artisanal product. Each one is hand-crafted from start to finish entirely by Marco Finardi in his workshop in Cremona, Italy. Taking his inspiration from the raw blocks of Italian briar, the unique aspects of each piece of wood are formed into one-of-a-kind handles. From there, the handles are then fitted to silvertip badger knots, made exclusively in Florence for Marco Finardi's brushes. Imprinted with a serial number and packaged in a gift box, each brush comes complete with a hand-signed certificate from its creator.
