A traditional round head shape for all-purpose work. Can be used for broad strokes yet it will also form a sharp point. They possess excellent colour holding, sensitivity, spring and durability. Seamless, golden brass ferrules. Red wood-grained polished handles.
These brushes have short handles.
I have bought a couple of these brushes a few years ago, and they are the best brushes that I have ever used, and that includes some very pricey Kolinsky sables that I have.
I use the smaller sizes, 2 and 4 for detail in oil, and sizes 8 and 6 for acrylic, and I also use some flats. They are ioncredibly hard wearing keeping their shape and point for YEARS, quite literally if looked after, and are very responsive.
In common with another reviewer, if I had found these when I first started painting I would never have bought sables, I would only use these they are so good. David Molloy (Rossendale,, United Kingdom) on 21 Jun 2013
I bought 13 brushes and got 2 of them disheveled (#00, #12) had to use aruba gum in order to fix them. Besides that, the brushes are great, they do hold water really good and the spring is wonderful. I really like them.JONATHAN RENPENING (HIDALGO, USA) on 28 Apr 2015

The brushes should arrive in perfect condition. One way to reshape nylon brushes with the odd bent hair is to place it in boiling water for a moment and flick the brush so all the hairs come into the correct shape. This should handle the problem.

These are good brushes for the price. J G Pike (London, United Kingdom) on 11 Sep 2012
