Got this brush when I was fascinated by large powder brushes. In the end, as lovely as it is, I have not used it much due to my style of makeup. I much prefer medium sized brushes that allow for more targetted placement of product. The Z8 and Z4 get far more use when I need a soft wash or color while goat (saikoho) brushes get the most use of all on my oily combo skin as they give more coverage.

The Chikuhodo Z-1 has a unique shape, dense and soft. It's pricey but worth every penny. One of my favorite from the Z series. The squirrel hairs pick up powder and blend it out beautifully. Also works perfectly for bronzers and powder foundation. A must have in your collection.
First foray into Chikuhodo and I think the brushes are excellent quality and worth the money. I have sensitive skin and therefore, cannot adapt to synthetic or other hair variations. I use this brush daily and my skin is happy. The shipping was also expedient. Good job CDJapan!
This brush is giving a great performance with its bundled pack and rounded head. It is not loose yet to be too dense just have a well balance in between thus giving a good diffusing power. It is good to use with Guerlain Meteorites or bronzer, gives a beautiful finish.
I waited years to invest in high quality brushes and made sure to research as many brands as I could before committing. My search eventually led me to the Chikuhodo Z series and the Suqqu cheek brush. While the Suqqu brush was tempting, I decided it best to order the Z1 and the Z4 instead. CdJapan was the most appealing to order from because of their fair prices and point/yen system. So I placed my order last Sunday. I went with EMS and less than a week my brushes arrived here in Florida. Incredible! I've never seen anything ship this fast internationally. My brushes were packaged securely and arrived in perfect, glorious condition. I'm not sure which I'm more impressed by -- the high quality craftsmanship of the Chikuhodo brushes or the stellar customer service of CdJapan. Both have blown my mind! These brushes are super soft, possibly softer than my pet rabbit! I'm using the Z1 for setting powder and with my Geurlain Meteorites. It's the perfect shape and size to swirl around the pearls and it delivers a beautiful finish. All in all, it's such a blessing to have these brushes in my collection. I'll definitely be ordering from CdJapan again, I'm so happy with everything!
