Towering and noble, the Marfin #195 is a force to be reckoned with: its arching handle is handsome and resolute, flaunting rich, wild swirls of briarwood hazel and a sweeping black spread of sinewy stubs across its face. Hand-crafted by Italian artisan, Marco Finardi, this piece is the result of a long and dedicated process that began with the collection of 30 year old briarwood from the Italian Apennines. Once carved into its unique handle shape, it was fitted with the finest silver tip badger hair into a special mold, firmly rooting the knot of bristles, and engendering a brush built to last you a lifetime.
Its long, willowy figure boasts a perfect ergonomic hold and a subtle sheen, thanks to the Carnauba wax and pumice powder polish. With bristles soft against your skin and a crisp citrus scent effusing from the Tung oil wood stain, there’s no better way to start your morning than with this one of a kind Marfin shaving brush.
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.
