Boar in teenage wild olive (CB152)
Another brush handle that has its origin on our property. This Wild Olive tree has been cut back to allow for access where it stands, the branch was about 50 mm thick, and no older than 10 years or so, still a youngster! We fitted this easy-on-the-eye handle with a 21 mm boar brush, and we are sure it will develop into a great brush, given the correct guidance.
Treat the handle with a natural oil or wax solution periodically. It stands 108 mm high and the knot lofts at 54 mm. At 64 grams and a handle with various options of holding it, this is pretty much in the range where all users will develop a liking for it
