Welcome to dickblick
The Escoda Versatil synthetic Kolinsky brush is the modern-day alternative to natural Kolinsky.
Utilizing a carefully selected custom blend of uniquely patterned synthetic fibers, these short-handled or long-handled brushes achieve everything artists expect from the finest natural hair brush.
Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, the Versatil provides great water retention, a firm spring, and a sharp, fine point, plus enhanced durability and a more consistent shape over the life of the brush.
Rigger, Series 1549
The Rigger is a long, full-bellied, pointed round brush shape with large color capacity that was originally designed for painting the rigging of ships.
Long and Short Handles — Long handles are recommended for easel style painting, while short handles are recommended for table-top painting where the artwork lies flat, especially with water media.

Nice point on both brushes, I'm enjoying using them.
As great as expected
from New York, NY
I knew that Escoda brushes got a lot of raves, and the minute I loaded up my two new watercolor brushes with paint, I would agree. Really thrilled with them and I'm coming back for more.
I love these Escoda brushes. They hold lots of water and pigment and hold their shape well over time.
These brushes are perfect for my watercolor paintings...they hold a great deal of water, and the point stays pointed with no splaying...simply a pleasure to use.
Best Brush Ever (#16 and Travel Brush)
from Galena, IL
So glad I listened to others, this is my new favorite brush after trying Kolinsky sable through quality synthetics. Why do I like it? Holds lots of water and pigment, comes to a wonderful point, and the bristles have the right amount of spring.The travel brush is beautifully weighted with a metal cap. Truly a quality brush. I look forward to painting now.
Very Nice Brushes
from North Carolina
I have someVersatil rounbds and two flats. These are outstanding brushes. They hold a lot of paint and retain their shape. They only a slight notch below my Kolinsky sable so they are a great buy.

Versatil brushes are excellent

Comments about Escoda Versatil Rigger:
Versatil rigger is great for painting long, unbroken, graceful lines. I also like the Versatil rounds for fine details. These synthetics are as good as anything I've used, a pleasure to work with.As good as sable, more durable, and no animals are harmed making these fine brushes.
Makes painting more pleasureable !
