The mk-11 is one of my favorite travel brushes its so very convenient and always in my handbag along with its matching little blush brush which are both of the same high quality. They both are super soft, compact, apply powder perfectly, they have never shed any hairs, and the maki-e print is just so very beautiful.

Makie: a unique Japanese art and craft where patterns are applied in lacquer on the surface of a lacquered object. Before the lacquer dries, metallic powders in gold, silver, and other colors are sprinkled and set on the surface of the object. During the Momoyama period (A.D.1573-1615), objects decorated with maki-e made their way to Europe's nobility and royalty via missionaries who had visited Japan. Large volumes of maki-e were exported. It is this colorful maki-e that has been applied to the handles of these brushes by craftsmen using printing techniques. Enjoy your fill of a collaboration between the beauty of the completely clear, black lacquer and the gorgeous maki-e.

I own both MK-11 and MK-12 but I prefer the size of MK-11 because I only do touch up for my foundation, which MK-12 is design as a blush brush so it's a bit small for powder. Another thing to point out is that MK-11 feels more comfortable than MK-12, the difference between them is that MK-11 is mix with sokoho and MK-12 is mix with horse. I would say if you just want one of the makie series brushes from Chikuhodo, grab MK-11 instead of MK-12, you won't regret it.
I love a traditional craft and pattern, so beautiful. The hair material is soft. But I feel the handle material is thinner. The product is best.
The brush is so beautiful and I love it so much. It is easy to bring around and use. The shipping is quick as well.
