This expertly crafted brush is perfect for covering large areas. If it's natural bristle you want, it's the finest available for varnishing, gessoing, glazing, and similar applications.
Each brush is loaded with top-quality natural Shanghai Chungking hog bristle. The bristle is expertly shaped by hand, then glued and triple crimped with a nickeled ferrule. Matt-varnished handles range from 135 mm in length for Size 9 brushes up to 185 mm for Size 48. Each handle has a drilled hole so that the brush can hang when not in use.

Double thickness Chungking bristle ranges from 5.5 mm thick in Size 9 up to 10 mm thick in the Size 30 brush.

These brushes are absolutely fantastic for both varnishing and gesso. I have had no problems with them at all. Plus, they last for years. I have two that I've been using for four years and they are still in great shape. Also, I love the fact that the handles are very comfortable to hold. (One caution though. When you wash them, do your best to keep water away from the metal or else dry the metal VERY thoroughly after cleaning. The metal will rust.) Give them a try!

Not worth the price...
Escoda is a good and reputable company that usually makes quality products. After a few uses of this gesso brush, however, I noticed that the metal enclosure began to slide up and down, exposing the bottom of the bristles. The metal frame is stapled onto the wood and the staples are also coming out. I think that it is only a matter of time until the thing falls apart. The bristles, however, are some of the best I've ever experienced in a gesso brush, and the application is nice and smooth. But if it doesn't last, I do not think that it is worth it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
