Classic Hand Tools Limited - Gramercy Brushes Gramercy Finishing Brushes The Gramercy Tools brush is made of 100 percent European ox-hair. Ox-hair is very fine and has a wonderful feel to it. It will leave a virtually brush-mark free surface and will hold a fair amount of finish for a long, efficient and controlled stroke. This brush is useful even for French polishing, if you brush on a coat to get a head start before starting the rubbing out process. The brush is solid hair with no gap, so you can cover carving details and mouldings, and go over edges and corners with no drips or splatters. Gramercy claim, and UK cabinetmaker, furniture restorer & author John Lloyd agrees, that you are unlikely to find a better finishing brush for shellac, varnish, nitrocellulose lacquer or any other typical finish material.
