Yamausagi fude (山兎筆, やまうさぎ ふで, lit. “mountain rabbit hair brush”),

A brush made of hairs of the mountain rabbit. The hairs are fairly short but have fantastic flexibility and very strong hairs ends. They are suitable for manufacturing brushes for writing small characters or drawing fine lines in sumi-e (墨絵, すみえ, ink painting). Mountain rabbits are very rare and therefore the brushes made of their hairs are quite pricey. Chinese mountain rabbits have the most suitable hairs for calligraphy brush production.
