Welcome to dickblick
Da Vinci's highest grade Kolinsky red sable brushes are produced with select winter hair from the Tobol River regions in Eastern Siberia. Because of the extreme cold in this region, the tail hair of the male has the longest and strongest hairs, the most select materials available for long liner brushes. Choose these brushes for precise, controlled brush strokes and detail work, such as lettering.
Expertly shaped, these fine artist brushes are unmatched for spring, resiliency, color-carrying capacity, and ability to hold a sharp edge or point. Color can be spread thinly and evenly for subtle shades of color, structuring, or layering. Use them for precise, controlled brush strokes, detail work, and fine blending.
In the sun-filled rooms of the Da Vinci factory, production masters, interns, and apprentices sit at marble working tables. Visitors often marvel at the calm atmosphere not usually found in a factory. They often compare it to a laboratory or studio, as the silence of concentration prevails, interrupted only by occasional consultation and conversation.
Brush hairs are glued into the ferrule by a dosing machine. Then the ferrule is filled with a modern component-glue. After the drying and curing process, all the hairs are firmly positioned. Da Vinci uses nickel- and gold-plated brass ferrules, which are rust resistant.
Straight Edge Liner
Similar to an outliner brush, but with a longer handle, its extra-long hairs taper to a flat, square end. With its huge color carrying capacity, the straight edge liner is useful for delicate lettering, outlining, and long continuous strokes.

Comments about Da Vinci Brushes Da Vinci Kolinsky Red Sable Liners Series 1203, 1206, and 1210:
Like a great friend. This brush did everything I asked it to do.I purchased when it was on sale which made it a great deal.I have complained in the past about a product that did not perform well so I can say truthfully this is fine brush. Of course if you want to pay that much for a few fibers in a liner brush even on sale you get what you pay for. Like they said in school, you cannot skimp on brushes. Also your phone order takers are very helpful and kind.David
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

this is my favorite of all brushes to do branches and other details in paintings, can't live without it. Talking about the 1210 size 6. Would like for it to be a little cheaper.

The brushes will simply not hold their shape. The hair comes out like some cheap dollar store brush. I am very disapointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
