Poised just like a tree stalk that grew to a ripe old age in a quiet, untouched forest, the hand-carved Marfin #198 is a piece that radiates elegance and tranquility. Slender-figured, the polished briarwood handle is smooth to the touch and comfortable to hold, resting lightly and evenly in your hand. Rugged black channels spill over the brush’s shoulders, settling into fine streaks of chestnut brown, and sinking further into richly saturated russet browns.
The silver tip badger bristles are of the highest grade, carefully selected by a Florence craftsman, and individually fitted to a mold by Marco Finardi, the creator behind Marfin brushes. Like a blossoming flower, the soft bristles burgeon from the handle’s core, standing firmly rooted and neatly cut in a dome shaped tuft, perfectly designed for lather application. Make this artisanal grooming accessory a part of your personal shaving collection, and cherish owning a piece that is uniquely your own.
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.
