Our Bonsai Brushes come with a variety of bristle options, including brass, iron/steel, pig's hair and nylon. The ergonomically designed handle is plated for comfort, while the bristles measure approximately 100mm in length.
In order of hardness/stiffness the Pig's Hair is softest, Nylon brush a little harder, Brass brush being harder still and the Iron brush being the hardest.
For creating and cleaning jins and shari (deadwood) the brass and iron brushes are suitable. These brushes are also ideal for cleaning carving bits, chisels and the teeth of tweezers.
For cleaning trunks we would recommend the nylon and pig's hair brushes.
