Dan, congratulations on your second beautiful Marfin.  I think we need a group shot with both brushes.

I only have one, and wish I could afford another. Marfin are probably the most beautiful, uniquely designed brushes available. Congratulations.

Chris the knot is just superb, luxuriously soft with medium backbone. It is great for bowl and face lathering. I have many nice brushes and none of those knots compare to the Marfin knots. Hope this answers your question. Dan

Dan, I was concerned the Marfin brushes would have a floppy knot.  It's good to read that they have at least some backbone.

Wow, I never realized how large those brushes actually are. The contrasts of texture are visually interesting, must be tactilely very interesting too. A work of art you can use, enjoy!

Marfin takes the word "artisan made" to another level.
