Made of the finest plateau briarwood, the Marfin #193 is an exquisite shaving brush, hand-crafted by Italian artisan, Marco Finardi. Like a wooden jewel brooded from the earth’s fertile belly, the #193 flaunts a diamond-shaped body, geometrically complex and built to withstand wear. Its portly base, exposing fragments of honeycombed ebony and Carnauba wax polished briarwood, creates a perfect balance with the egg-shaped tuft that rises up from the wooden handle, making for a comfortable hold and a pleasing overall visual aesthetic.
The thick tuft of silver tip badger bristles are hand-picked from the Italian Apennines, carefully selected and cut to create a dome-shaped surface, ideal for gathering lather. Adorn your bathroom countertop with this sophisticated piece, and show the world your discerning style.
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.
