Toothbrush by Koh-I-Noor Italy
Koh-I-Noor makes some of the finest brushes and personal care products in the world. Still traditionally made by hand in Italy, the firm is one of the few who still uses natural bristles (such as boar and badger) in their products.
The Jaspe series of brushes uses plastic handles.
The natural series uses primarily boar bristles; the extra soft series uses very fine badger bristles which are excellent for dental work. Tynex is a DuPont nylon product and of excellent quality.
As with all products using natural bristles, special care must be taken to allow proper draining.

Koh-I-Noor, originally known as Bürstenfabrik Grüneberg, was established in 1832 in Bratislava, Slovakia as a manufacturer of toothbrushes. The name was changed in the 1920s to it’s current name. In 1942 when the Russians invaded Slovakia, the Grüneberg Family sold Koh-I-Noor technology and intellectual properties to Carlo Scavini who moved everything to Tredate, Italy. Since then, the Scavini family expanded the product offerings to include personal care products such as hair brushes, comb and shaving brushes.
