Welcome to dickblick
The fine haired Escoda Optimo Kolinsky sable forms a soft brush head, which is great for delicate, controlled work. Escoda cures the brush hair resulting in remarkable spring and resilience.
The long, lacquered blue wood handle offers superb control. It's attached to the nickel-plated brass ferrule via Escodas exclusive triple crimping process.
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.

Escoda Optimo Kilinski brushes are the best brushes I''be ever used. The filbert brushes can be used for broad strokes or fine lines, all smooth. They hold the paint well and hold their shape.
Once you paint with Escoda there is no coming back

I bought this flat for oil painting on paper and board for smaller portraiture and illustration work. I like the quality of material used in the brush tip; it is the right length for heavy pressure strokes or light soft strokes. It is accurate and responsive the long handle provides for a range of motion.

For detail, these Escoda optima Kolinsky sable detailer brushes are the very best. They have "fat bellies" but come to an incredibly sharp point. They are the best detail brushes for watercolor made in my humble opinion.
The Escoda family is known for crafting some of the finest brushes available. The Optimo series is a long handle brush made from a 50/50 blend of the finest male and female kolinsky sable hair to achieve the optimal results for discerning oil and acrylic artists.
