Not your typical boar brush this. You got to have BIG hands and a BIG face to work this bastard! The knot is an extra long 26 mm boar, this thing will eventually flare enough so that it can be used by an Egyptian slave to fan down a fat king....with breeze to spare! The spider shape gives it its name, the flames in the African Black wood adding to the bad-ass attitude of a spider abdomen. Use this as a shaving brush, or simply lob it with a bow onto the head of an intruder in crime-ridden SA to render him unconscious and ready to zip-tie. Length (this thing lies, it does not stand) 153 mm, weight 150 grams, loft 73 mm. Build and extra shelf for this one, or add additional support to your existing one !
