This hog bristle brush is a workhorse! The ultimate hard brush, made from the hairs off the back of a hog, which are strong and springy, they also have natural split ends which increases the amount of paint they hold.
The Neef 1150 Hog Bristle brush has a long handle, about 29 cm, from the end of the handle to the top of the ferrule.
For an idea of bristle size- the largest in the filbert, the size 20, has bristles which measure 5.5 cm from ferrule to bristle tips and 5.5 cm across. The smallest, the size 1, has bristles which measure 1.5 cm from ferrule to bristle tips and 5 mm across.
