They have three kinds of kolinsky.

Cantor 100,000 yen

lip 13,000 yen

eyeliner 7000 yen.


Bunshindo is Kawajiri Brush, which is located next to Kumano. Kawajiri has Koyomo brushes, too. Both Kumano and Kawajiri are located in the middle of Hiroshima prefecture.


By the way, Japan has 47 prefectures, the biggest of which is Tokyo. The second is Kanagawa that has Yokohama. Hiroshima Prefecture has only 2.8 million people, which ranks the 12th. So there are many local (small ) prefectures and small cities. Or you can say that Tokyo is too big for local people.


Bunshindo has Kolinsky hair that was bought 30 years ago. It has been kept well for long, which is good for brush. 

In Japanese, 古 means ‘old,’ and is pronounced as ‘Ko.’ You may have realized that Koyomo is 古(Ko)羊毛(Yomo) (Yomo means old goat hair)

Now they use it as a brand name.

The Bunshindo web page ranks goat hair as follows:
古細微光鋒 (Ko Saibikoho)

古細光鋒 (Ko Saikoho)

古粗光鋒 (Ko Sokoho)


There are 2 more hair ranking higher than these hairs.


All have a kanji 古 (means old) so it is old hair that is softer and more expensive.


I found the Bunshindo youtube too.
