Product Description

This Badger brush features a handcrafted handle by Robert Quinn from Jamaica Dogwood which is native to the West Indies and is the national tree of Jamaica.  The wood is a heavy, durable hardwood with a yellow-brown color. It is valued for boat building, woodcarving, making fences and for charcoal.  From time immemorial, the bark has been used for catching fish. The leaves, twigs, and root bark are collected, macerated with the residue from the distillation of rum or with lime water, then transferred into baskets, and this concoction is dragged up and down the water until the fish are stupefied and float to the surface.

Handle – 53mm
