More Info:
The tip of this brush is made of Goat and Horse Hair


With its traditional styling, the Old Gentleman Yi Pin brush has a distinguished air about it, befitting of a brush created to help beginners along.

This mixed hair brush has a tip that consists of 70% goat hair surrounding a core of 30% horse hair. The goat hair renders the brush tip soft and flexible while the stiffer horse hair provides the core with elasticity and resilience. This combination makes the Old Gentleman Yi Pin brush a good choice for those who, having just entered the field of painting, are still learning how to master the use of a brush.

The Old Gentleman Yi Pin brush is suitable for painting and calligraphy, especially the Xing Shu and Cao Shu scripts. The Chinese name of the brush, Yi Pin Jian Hao Miao Bi, is carved on its dark-toned wooden handle.
