XL Copper Handled Horse Shave Brush by Zenith. Made In Italy H8
Horse hair shaving brush by Zenith with a large professional copper handle.
No harm is caused to the horse, the hairs are cut while grooming. Because they are cut, they take longer to break in than a boar brush. Unless you like the horsey smell, let it soak and shampoo several times before use.
One criticism for the Zenith Horse brushes is that they tend to be floppy. These are specially ordered with a lower loft to reduce floppiness. One can always use the traditional Italian Barber pinch, by holding the knot rather than the handle for more control.
This has a large 27mm knot in it. The loft is set at 53mm with an effective loft of 46-49mm from glue bump. Total height is around 120mm. Total weight is a hefty 106 grams. The knot is made of 50/50 Mane/Tail hairs.
