Andrew Mack & Son Brush Company has teamed up with Todd Hanson to create a brush called the â€œKing 13â€ which is offered in sizes 0000000, 00000, 000, 00, and 0.
We use a 60mm Chinese blue squirrel hair for the 00000 and 000 giving the brush a total length of 1 Â¾â€. We use a 64mm hair for the 00 and 0 which gives the brush a total length of 2â€. The brush has more pull in the making process giving it a little more taper than a traditional striper. The amount of hair that is disÂtributed onto the handle during the making process is configured differently than our series #10 or #20 brushes. For example, the 00000 and 000 are made on a #00 handle, the 00 is made on a #0 handle, and the 0 is made on a #1 handle. Our technicians are applying the same amount of hair for a say a #00 brush but putting it on a handle that has a larger surface area.
For the past several years, we have made these custom brushes for Todd with all the above attributes and decided it was time to put his name on the brush.
