An innovative piece in Italian artisan Marco Finardi’s luxury shave brush collection, Marfin #183 showcases the traditional briarwood handle and silver tip badger bristles, with the added novelty of an ivory horn top layer, endowing the handle with just the right touch of regality. The plateau briarwood is polished with Carnauba wax to a uniform finish, spanning the whole of the handle, save for a swift passage into unbridled territory on its front face, gracefully unfolding into molten rock-like whorls, creating the ideal gripping point for your thumb while you lather.
Warm auburn swirls flaunt the briarwood’s natural filaments, budding in organic formations along its backside, and bursting forth into spindles around its sides. Take a waft of the handle as you apply lather to your face, and you’ll be soothed by a clean citrus aroma, a result of the all-natural Tung oil stain. Planted fixedly in the centre of the handle are high-grade Italian silver tip badger bristles, hand-collected by a Florence craftsman, and precisely glued in place by Finardi himself. Stand this one of a kind luxury brush atop your bathroom counter, and drift into your most relaxing shave yet.
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.
