Stiff hair brushes are usually made of weasel hair, generally known as the "wolf" hair brush. They are with sharp-pointed tip and spring back, so they used to draw calligraphic strokes or fine lines. The oldest brush discovered by archaeologists in China were all made of stiff hair, and the best-known stiff brush is the rat whisker brush, favored by Wang Xizhi, the fourth century calligrapher. This rat whisker brush is made by  Master Xu  and included in the student value pak for my online painting class.
