Welcome to dickblick
Escoda hand cures each Bravo brush, so that what results is a tool that offers remarkable spring and resilience.
The long, lacquered red wood handle offers superb control. It's attached to the nickel-plated brass ferrule via Escoda's exclusive triple crimping process.
Bright and Flat — A Bright is a short flat brush that absorbs less color and has a stiffer stroke. A Flat is longer than a Bright and is consequently more flexible at the tip.
Brush sizes — The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.

Doesn't hold paint
Comments about Escoda Bravo Light Ox Hair Round Long Handle Series 3419:
I bought 4 of these very small brushes size 0 and 2/0. They were unusable. I use Old Holland oil paint. It won't load properly on the brush and they were useless. I have never had this problem with other brushes. Returned the unused ones and got cheaper Blick student grade that actually work much much better. Go figure.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

alternative to bristle
Ox hair is a softer variant to bristle for oil painting; I wanted something stiffer than sable and not as coarse as bristle so I opted for the ox and I am pleased that its worked out for me. Escoda produces some beautiful brush I am proud to own.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
"I would buy this product again and agai

I love these brushes
from Calabasas, CA
I've been painting in oils full time since retiring in 2003. I've used many different types of brushes and these are my favorites. They hold their shape and carry paint well. They have just enough spring and leave a stroke that is satisfying to look at, but not too heavily textured.
from West palm beach, FL
These are great brushes with just the right mix of softness for detail work and body for heavy amounts of paint. The long filberts are now my favorite brushes. I pick them over just about any other brush I have. So far they are retaining their shape, but I've only just started using them a few weeks ago, but on a daily basis.
Best All-Purpose Oil Brush
These Escoda Bravo Light Ox Brushes are easily the best all-purpose brushes I've used. They have all of the good qualities of hog and sable, with none of their detractions. The #8 round in particular offers a fine, solid point that allows for a lot of thick paint application and detailed work, which gives you many choices about how you utilize it. Buy it!

Great brushes for detail work buy it
from Sydney Australia
These light ox hair brushes are the best I've used. I think they are better than sable brushes and are excellent for laying on paint using the flats and brights and the filberts and rounds for detail.I use them for animals , birds, portraites and landscapes. I thoroughly recommend them.
