With a specially processed small tip made of weasel hair, the Petal & Blossom Fineline Brush has a particularly high resilience compared to most other brushes, even those also in the hard hair brush family.

As its name suggests, the brush is particularly adept at drawing fine lines, but the special tip also allows the artist to produce accurate and coherent results even when writing and painting very quickly.

In addition to being perfect for drawing fine lines in paintings, this brush is also great for small script calligraphy.

There is often confusion between weasel hair and wolf hair, and this stems from the fact that both types of hair share the same character, Lang Hao in Chinese. Though this brush is made with weasel hair, it is indicated as wolf hair on the website to indicate exceptional quality, whereas basic weasel hair quality will be indicated in The Chinese Calligraphist web shop as just weasel hair.

Therefore, this brush is made of the finest weasel hair, as it was produced in Northeast China, a region long recognized as producing the best of this type of hair in the country.

In the handle of the brush, Jing Xuan Chun Lang is carved, which is the name of the brush in Chinese.
