According to dictionary.com, Fitch is the European polecat, Mustela putorius.
The fitch brush is much softer and finer than the standard hog hair
brush. It's used mainly for finishing images and fine detail work. It
can be very effective used alone on an image for a long, smooth tonal
range without the more coarse, grainy look of a traditional Bromoil.
The Fitch brush David sells on his website is excellent - as is the
Hog hair brush.
