The 138 is big and bold, weighing in at 125 g, or 4 and 3/8 oz. Every brush made by Marco Finardi is a work of art, but this unique specimen works best for big men, with big hands. Imposingly square, the dark Italian briar is finely polished and easily catches the light. Soft, even bristles blossom from the top, seated securely in their base. At the top of the handle, dark furrows into the wood stand out starkly, like dried rivulets of magma in the otherwise unmarked hues of brown.
Although the word “artisanal” has come to be overused on many occasions, Marfin products are one of the few remaining items for which the term is truly deserved. Are they expensive? Sure. But worth it? Oh, yes. This is as close to bespoke as you're going to get.
Each Marfin brush is entirely unique. Handcrafted by a single man, Marco Finardi, and stamped with a unique serial number, your Marfin brush is guaranteed to be the only one like it in the world.
Marfin was founded when Marco Finardi, a graphic designer from Cremona, combined his passions for wet shaving and outstanding design. Drawing inspiration from luxury pipes, 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.
