This is an extra-long wood handle, vented, mixed boar bristle and nylon bristle round brush. The extra-long barrel allows for faster blow-drying by using bigger sections (dividing the head into thirds instead of fifths). Solid wood handle. All-boar bristle version available (YS Park #120el1 and #110el2). YS Park continues to be the most innovative and popular brand of Japanese products we sell. Made in Japan.
