Yakusugi cedar 

Ancient Japanese cedar trees on UNESCO World Heritage-listed Yakushima island grow at an altitude of more than 500 meters above sea level. Yakusugi (屋久杉) is cedar more than 1,000 years old, and the wood is known for its sublime fragrance, durability, and elegant grain. It is strictly prohibited to cut down Yakusugi, so the handles of these brushes are made from stumps of trees that fell naturally in typhoons. These trees are called 'Domaiboku', which literally means buried trees in the ground.

Another collector brush worth the splurge

This brush needs a three part review: The handle is lightly fragrant- I can detect a scent within a six inches from my nose or less. I didn't want a strong smell, so this is perfect for me. The hair quality is insane- softer than my Suqqu cheek brush by a mile. The bundling is surprising packed- I was expecting an airy floppy brush. Koyudo was not stingy with the amount of hair- the brush has a good volume and body. Worthy craftsmanship to match the rare handle. Huge splurge, but worth it for me to collect.

Another collector brush worth the splurge

Red squirrel is definitely the softest hair type I have encountered- even softer than the legendary Suqqu cheek brush, the softest of the blue/grey squirrel brushes I own. The bundling is generous- surprisingly dense, well shaped paddle. The handle is fragrant if you sniff it close to your nose. I actually prefer the gorgeous subtle scent. Glad I purchased- and thanks to Fude Beauty for excellent customer experience.

A joy

I purchased this brush because yakushima is a place with a lot of sentimental value to me. That alone is worth the price. I bought this before the eye brushes came out, and had I known, perhaps I would have purchased the eye brush instead as I was mainly interested in the yakusugi handle. However, I don't regret my purchase at all. The red squirrel bristles are exquisitely soft. Imagine running your hand through clouds—it's softer. As for the scent, it is very noticeable, but it won't perfume the whole area. I can smell it clearly when I hold the brush close to my nose. If I close my eyes, the scent transports me to one of the shrines or temples in Japan with a few hundred years of history.

Nice brush!

I personally don't have any problems with the scent or the handle. Every time I pick up the brush, I can smell a natural woodsy scent to it. All Koyudo brushes I own have "light" handles, even the ones with Raden.
