The hair, which has a golden red fawn appearance, has incomparable vigour, springiness and elasticity. Thanks to it's flag, it is the perfect bristle for precision work and fine details. It is the ideal extra-fine hair for all artists' brushes, but historically it's price has been higher than gold.

Review by Nijaz Lukovac
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! (Posted on 20/08/2015)
