talón del pincel


Explanation:
Creo que en castellano también designamos talón a la parte que está inmediatamente antes del mango y por extensión también a la parte por donde se agarra un objeto o instrumento.

Talón
Parte por la que se agarra el arco del violín y de otros instrumentos semejantes, y, por ext., parte posterior o extremo de otros objetos, como la caña de pescar o el cuchillo del carpintero.

DRAE

heel
the part of a tool next to the tang or handle
