The Z series is the most luxurious we have, and made from the softest hair, which won’t irritate even really sensitive skin.
“We hire trained specialists to hand-pick the highest quality hairs. And the thing that’s unique to our brush-making process is that the hairs are never cut. This means the tips are as soft as they can possibly be.”
All quotes from our June 2014 translated interview with Yutaro Takemori, who is the grandson of Chikuhodo chairman and master brush maker Tesshu Takemori.
