Bristle and Specialty Brushes

Natural boar bristle brushes have bristles made from the hair of the adult boar. In its natural state, boar hair is approximately 6 inches in length and tapers from its thickest point at the bulb (root) to thinnest point at the tip. The quality of the natural bristle used in any brush is determined by two factors; the quality of the actual bristle itself and which "cut" of the bristle is used. "Cuts" are categorized as "First Cut" (the bulb end), "Second Cut", "Third Cut", etc. Depending on the bristle length of the brush being manufactured, the manufacturer may be able to yield three or four cuts from the bristle (the tip or "flag" end of the bristle is generally discarded).
