Isabey's Pure Kolinsky Sable Rounds are made with the longest, densest, and most luxurious hair possible.
Hand selected from Siberia during winter, Kolinsky sable is crafted into the highest precision fine art brushes available.
Series 6228 — This brush is a slightly fatter bellied version of Isabey's Series 6227z. It combines precision with the ability to hold a large quantity of paint, for long or full brush strokes. It has excellent resiliency that springs back to an incredibly sharp point.
These brushes have short handles.
This brush itself is a work of art, extremely well made, long handle with very high quality ferrule and varnish, the bristles form a point without stray hairs. The brush has a full belly but forms a really nice and sharp point, the snap isn't as hard as a Series 7 but you still have control of the line weight by pressing harder or softer with good flow. The size and shape is almost identical to a Winsor & Newton Series 7 Size 3 but with a slightly shorter tip. Pedro Figueiras (Lisbon, Portugal) on 9 Feb 2015
Lovely, springy with a sharp point, it held up beautifully on a very busy facepainting job. I have used series sevens for years and have been disappointed with every different brush I've tried until the Isabey! I now need a number 3! Claire Brookwell (Tonbridge, United Kingdom) on 25 Feb 2015
Such a beautiful brush, it has everything a top of the line watercolor sable should - spring, point, water capacity - in addition to an indescribable aesthetic something (weight/balance/flow?) that makes painting an utter delight! Kim G (Santa Monica, USA) on 11 Nov 2015
