Escoda Opera Takatsu is a synthetic filament with a feel that is almost identical to traditional sable, but much more robust. The extra natural spring and resilience of the blended filaments makes it an excellent choice for acrylics and oils.
The long red-black lacquered wooden handle is triple crimped to the nickel-plated brass ferrule. The Escoda curing process creates a brush head that consistently snaps back to its original shape.
Cat's Tongue — The "Cat's Tongue" is a pointed filbert with more edges than the typical, almond-shaped filbert. Popular in Europe, it allows an artist to create lines and points with different weights.
Filbert, Series 3060 — A "cat's tongue" profile is characteristic of the tip of this Spanish style filbert, allowing for both the traditional filbert brush stroke and finer, more detailed work.
Note — Brush sizes are not standardized. The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size varies considerably by manufacturer. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from a given manufacturer.
