From the category of "Don't trust what you read in listings" comes this item with no maker marks visible. Deconstructed to show components. Small hole at top of handle for unknown reasons. Very large brushes held in to wood by wires and the handle seems off for barber work...a bit weak for being a heavy useage utilitarian tool. A pitch filling (not present here) would have made more sense. Seems more like cosmetics applications for milady. Any hints welcome?
