The theme of this brush ties in with our 'African Black' range in a new way in that the bulk part of resin is replaced with coarse salt, and not just any type of salt either, one of the purest forms of salt on the planet!
We obtain the salt from www.Oryxsdesertsalt.co.za, who harvests it from the Kalahari region where the salt is a ever-replenishing, renewable source. This source was discovered beneath a 50 km2 salt pan where three underground streams converge and replenish an ancient underground salt lake of 55 million tons from which the salt water is deposited into pans under the hot Kalahari sun and sun-dried.
This salty feature makes this brush even more charged up on the eco-friendly side as we only use about a third of the resin we'd normally use. Although you lose some visual attributes of the resin, you gain exceptional grip as the salt on the exposed surface of the brush is dissolved in water and leaves these pockets that will enhance your grip dramatically, especially around the curves of the brush and your fingers.
This brush was made with black resin, natural salt and African Sekelbos wood, it is fitted with a 24 mm synthetic Tuxedo knot....this is solid equipment!
The brush stands 146 mm tall, with the loft at 56 mm. It has a waist of 21 mm and a belly of 38 mm. The brush weighs 113 grams.
Use our 'My Bliksem' aftershave balm to preserve the wood portion of the brush, it has amazing water repellent properties and will preserve the rock-hard timber for years to come!
