    This review is from: Bon 11-219 13-Inch Tampico Fiber Bricklayers Brush (Tools & Home Improvement)

    For those of you who may not know, the “Tampico Fiber” this brush is made from is a type of plant fiber that comes from the Agave lechuguilla desert plant. The plant is green, so the fibers here are dyed black, probably to resemble higher quality horsehair bristles found on better quality brushes.
    The bristles of this brush are stiff & actually have a plastic feel to them & in no way feel like or act like horsehair. They have more “spring” to them, & are not nearly as soft. This will result in debris being swept further with these fibers than with horsehair, using the same amount of effort. That may be good or bad, depending on your use. If you’re trying to sweep clear an area, you may want the extra “spring” this fiber gives. If you’re aiming debris into a dust-pan, you may not welcome the extra “spring.”

    This brush is not well-finished. While my brush had no splinters in the wood, the handle has rough patches which were not well-sanded & could give you an abrasion if you rub your skin against it too hard, Some edges are actually sharp, particularly the pointed edge on the non-handle end of the brush.

    Based on its construction & poor finish, I don’t expect this brush to last long, but it may be useful to some buyers as a cheaper alternative to a better-made, better bristle, but more expensive brush.
