The amber-colored bristles of the Great Master Wolf Hair brush are actually made of the finest weasel - and not wolf - hair, which was sourced from Northeast China, a region long-known for producing the best weasel hair in the country. As the same Chinese characters, Lang Hao, can refer to both weasel and wolf hair, weasel hair brushes in the market are often wrongly labeled.

While wolf hair brushes do exist, they cost a lot and are available only in limited quantities. The Chinese Calligraphist web shop stocks a genuine wolf hair brush, the Roaring Wolf brush. We named this particular weasel hair brush a wolf hair brush to highlight the superior quality of its bristles, both in terms of the raw material and manufacturing methods used.

The Great Master Wolf Hair brush has a stiff and resilient tip that is excellent for creating firm and dynamic lines. This hard hair brush is a good choice for the artist who paints landscapes and animals. It is also suitable for small script calligraphy as its thin and firm brush tip provides sufficient strength for the required brush strokes.
