Connoisseur Kolinsky Sable brushes are superior quality. Hair points well and when loaded with water will return to it's original shape. Each brush head is secured with a gold plated seamless ferrule and is attached to a clear, acrylic handle with a watercolorist's scraper edge. The Kolinsky hair is immensely strong yet is also supple, springy and extremely resilient. Great for watercolour, gouache and more!
