Via a friend of mine a got a brush which the seller described (and some members copy the same) as a: "turkish #6 horse hair brush"
From the 1st second that brush brought in my mind my other 2 turkish Boar brushes (the sellers described them straight and clear as BOARS) and of course i saw some similarities with my other Boars (i have 12 of them).

Let's see what i got:

Some residues in the handle
I suppose were from glue,that was a negative impression.

Oh my God !
That ring has an acme that could scratch very bad my skin on painting moves !
I haven't face that before,that's unforgivable.

The handle has a poor quality finish and a cheap coat applied
I wonder how much will that lacquer will last.

Of course the catopse shows something that's 100% identical to all my other Boar brushes
I wonder how a "turkish horse" brush managed to look the same?

What a coincidence !
Even that brush has glue overflow problems as my other 2 turkish Boar brushes.

-So what i have in my hands:
I brush that looks like my other 2 turkish Boars brushes
Has same handicaps
(for those will say that the price was too low i will answer that the price could be 2-3 $ more with a much better quality)
That brush smell absolutely as many of my other Boars brushes and again i wonder how a "turkish horse" brush managed to smell the same?
(of course i have made a de-funk work and i have use it but that's for the next post)

-The seller says that is a horse:
Where is the proof?
Which are his evidence to support that?
(sellers say that a pill can make you a stud,a lotion will make your hair to grown,a magnet set in gasoline pipe-line will give more Hp to your engine,a belly belt with batteries will give you a six-pack via pulse movements etc....)

More photos and impressions will follow soon
My opinion is that brush is a turkish#6 BOAR brush.

Kurucu means Admin

"neyazıkkı domuz" means "unfortunately Boar".
Do you know for what brush he is talking about?
This one!



Another one member describes there that his brush smell like "domuz" which is "Boar"

Take a look for the brush that he is referring to:

Looks similar with another brush,isn't like the turkish #6?


I make a second post in a row in purpose because the meaning is different.

My shaving friend the base knot is 22,5mm and the loft is 49,30mm
The seller gives 25mm and 50mm
It's very funny that he measures in his site the glue base knot !
What is the reason for that?
With so much glue overflowing no one will put this base knot in the top of a handle
You must "toss" it as i already have done with another turkish Boar brush.

I had one. Piffed it. It is definitely a BOAR. Not a horse by any means.

You are right,of course it's Boar !
Identical to other turkish Boars which they say it clearly.
