A beautiful, economical handmade brush used by both student and professional printmakers.

For Surikomi Bake, the brush makers use either all deer hair, or deer hair added to hog hair. Deer hair is very absorbent, while hog hair adds stiffness. Our brushes are the stiffer kind since these work best for moku hanga.

The handles are hand-carved from one piece of bamboo, and hand sewn onto the cluster of bristles.

Soak in water for about 10 minutes before using to help prevent shedding.
