Product Description

This brush features a handcrafted handle by Robert Quinn from Mesquite Burl that is found in Northern Mexico and the southwestern United States.  Mesquite trees are also found in the Chihuahuan Desert of Mexico.  Mesquite trees can reach a height of 20 to 30 feet, although mostly they are shrub size.   Mesquite is an extremely hardy, drought-tolerant plant because it can draw water from the water table through its long taproot (recorded at up to 190 ft. in depth).  Mesquite wood is hard, allowing it to be used for furniture and implements.  The hard, dense lumber is also sold as Texas Ironwood and is rather harsh on saws, chain saws, and other tools.  Artisans and woodcrafters in Northern Mexico claim that mesquite should be cut under the light of a full moon to avoid splitting.  While this has not been proven, mesquite does take longer to cure than most hardwoods.
