Shiribone Tailbone (尻骨, しりぼね, lit. “rear bone”)

One of the parts of the brush anatomy. Shiribone is located on the brush handle (筆管, ひっかん, hikkan), on the opposite side of the brush tuft. Shiribone is the base for the kakehimo (掛け紐, かけひも, i.e. “hanging cord”). Please read more about brush anatomy here.
