Boar bristle pastry brushes

Boar bristle brushes are particularly nice because they carry plenty of liquid – eggwash, milk, water, glaze, whatever, and they are soft enough to not disturb the surface you are brushing. Boar bristles are flexible, and they will bend easily along the contours of fresh fruit or the crimped edges of a pie crust. Very nice to have in a variety of sizes and shapes – both round and flat.
