NORIBAKE Japanese paste brush
The Japanese 'nori-bake' means paste brush, but this brush is a dream with all sorts of wet media like wtercolour, inks and dyes.
A Japanese cypress handle is warp and rot resistant. A shorter handle for better control that fits in your hand. Undyed goat hair - soft, very absorbent, long lasting - with natural hair ends (NOT cut). This creates a lovely taper when wet. No streaks on the page; no "bushy" ends after just a few uses.
Well secured between two paper layers made from washi and nylon; bound with synthetic string. No loose hairs or rusty metal ferrules.
These were $25 but now just $15 :)
