Escoda's Optimo Kolinsky Sable Pointed Round is a marriage of beauty, form, and function in brushes. Snappy, pristine, Kolinsky hair is delicately hand crimped into a nickel brass ferrule. The short, blue, lacquered wood handle offers control for detail work.
Escoda brushes are manufactured by specialized craftspersons in Sabadell, a city in Spain's Catalunya region. Painstaking attention is paid to every step of Escoda's handcrafted brushmaking process, resulting in a piece that will be of service for years to come.
Gift Idea — A couple of these brushes would make a perfect gift for the significant watercolor artist in your life, perhaps in combination with a Kolinsky Sable Bright. Your artist friend will wonder where you got your great taste in brushes!
Reservoir Liner, Series 1310 — Available in selected sizes, the Reservoir Liner has a full body and a long, central tip. It retains much more color than a conventional pointed round or a thin long liner.
Detailer Round, Series 1208 — In selected sizes, the Kolinsky Sable Pointed Round is available in a special short length, for precise control.
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.

Kolinsky Sable Brush Shortage
Due to regulatory issues regarding the importation of Kolinsky hair, we are temporarily out of stock on many of our more popular brush styles. Be assured that we are working with our vendors and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to remedy this situation as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience.
