On point with plenty of paint!

Still, after three years of use (and care!) this remains one of my go-to brushes for all things miniature painting. It is also remarkably durable even after some very heavy use! Highly recommended!!

The Kolinsky 8404 range are brilliant for miniatures. In my opinion better than the W&N brushes as they have a larger reservoir. Miles ahead of AP and Citadel offerings.

Pazzesco... questo pennello N° 6 della serie 8404 in un noto negozio di iconografia in Italia lo pagai il 30% in più

Review

Li uso per le icone su consiglio di un maestro iconografo ottimi per acquerello la fattura non ha eguali. i manici e le ghiere dopo molti lavaggi sono sempre nuovi. Jackson's dovrebbe prendere tutte le serie di Raphael una marca artigianale superlativa

An excellent universal brush for small formats and for working out details on large jobs. One of the irreplaceable. Holds the tip well. It takes paint well. Doesn't lose hair. Beautiful! Always with me - travelling and in the studio.

Excellent quality though slightly bigger than other brands, not a bad thing as the point is as fine and the belly bigger.

Can't really fault the brushes, good point and hold plenty of medium. Sizes are slightly larger because of wider ferrule.

Love this brush. Excellent point for detail but also holds loads of paint/ water for washes. Had my last one for years but treated myself to a new brush for my birthday.

This brush is amazing, much better than the Windsor and Newton I was using. Very sharp point, better than the W&N size 0 for me.

Review

I'm so surprised at how this brush has become my day to day "everything" brush. It's amazing, I can't recommend it enough. Better point than a W&N size 1!!!!

Review

Only used a couple times so far but really happy with this brush. I use it for painting miniatures, the hair has just the right amount of stiffness for me. I've been struggling with kolinsky sable brushes being too soft and having to straighten them up often, but this one just snaps back perfectly. I was a little surprised at how long the hair was, I'm used to similar brushes being shorter, but it's not necessarily a bad thing.

This brush has been my everyday workhorse for years. If you paint miniatures, you owe yourself a raph 8404.

I have been using these Raphael brushes for years. They are fantastic brushes for detailed delicate artwork. They remain sharp for years and it is possible to draw as fine a line with these brushes as you could with a pencil. Highly recommended.

Now I have sizes 8, 10 and 14. All are of the greatest quality. The slight differences are in the handle proportions. For me, #10 has ideal proportion, while #8 is a hair too short and #14 perhaps a hair too thick (I have big hands, but somehow I do prefer thinner handles), but it's smooth, without pronounced So-called ""ergonomic"" transitions that I find annoying in most of the other makes. Nevertheless, 14 is my new star! It offers perfect control from hair-thin details to bald washes. It extends your hand and flows smoothly. Point, snap, spring... You name it, it's got it all! I'd recommend it to anyone who can afford it! Got to fall in love with this one!

After long wait and flawless communication with JA, the brush has finally arrived - and it was worth waiting! Although not as ""perfect"" as sizable 10 (which has ideal proportions and balance), #8 is just a hair below in perfection. Beautiful brush that performs wonderfully. Highly recommended. As far as I'm concerned, I'd never again buy any other brand of kolinsky brush - the search is over!

I have about 100 brushes and more than half of them are branded ""kolinsky"", but it didn't prevent me from searching for a ""perfect"" one. After long research and some trial and error, I've decided to buy this brush - and voil

Order went through fine but collecting from Gloucester was confusing. No sales desk, no uniforms, didn't know if I was asking a member of staff or another customer. There was a group sat at computers who looked at me weird when I went in, took a guess and asked one of them. Success, I had my order! I shouldn't have been that complicated.
