This is our first brush using a bit of Giraffe bone, the stuff is dense and smoothes out great with some pretty patterns and shades of white. The black bottom end of this brush ties in with our 'African Black' range in a way 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!
This salty feature makes the 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 feels will enhance grip dramatically, especially around the curves of the brush and your fingers.
You may detect some more salt residue as you use your brush, nothing to worry and you can simply wipe it away with water, this in on account of some more inner crystals that are dissolving as we can only spend so much time rinsing a brush handle. I think it would be so cool if all the salt could be washed out completely, it would look wicked! Who knows maybe after years of use....
The brush stands 142 mm tall, with the loft at 56 mm, it has a waist of 22 mm and a 'boepie' of 41 mm. The brush weighs 97 grams. We fitted this one with a 26 mm horse knot.
