Sei

Sei (斉, せい, i.e. “similar (uniform)”)

One of four virtues according to which brushes are to be chosen. The remaining three are: 尖 (せん, sen, i.e. “pointed”), 健 (けん, ken, i.e. “healthy”), and 円 (えん, en, i.e. “round”). 斉 in Japanese means “alike”, or “adjusted”. Basically, the brush tuft ought to be well arranged, i.e. the hairs should be symmetrical, not stick out, and should not be broken or have split ends, and should be of a uniform shape and quality.
