PIG BRISTLES - Usually shipped from China in stout cases which are often secondhand or renailed so that it is frequently impossible to decide whether they have been tampered with since packing. Shipped weights are usually stenciled on the cases, so that arrived weight is often a good guide as to possible shortage.
The bristles are wrapped in bundles with cord bindings, paper wrapped, and marked with lengths. Often various lengths are packed in one case, so that in the event of the breakage of a case, if the bundles are broken or loose, only an expert can resort them as to lengths.
