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.

Comments about Escoda Versatil Round:
This brush holds and extraordinary amount of water and color which allows for single stroke paint application. With its long bristles, it also makes beautiful sideway strokes and lovely leaf shapes. Since the tip is pointed, a small amount of paint can be placed as needed.
Not what I expected
from Brunswick, ME
Comments about Escoda Versatil Flat Wash:
A good flat brush fir watercolor should come to a crisp edge that allows you to paint thin lines and into tight corners. These brushes just get furry and bushy. I have other brushes made by Escoda which are great, in the Perla and Prado lines, but I was very disappointed by these--I returned them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have a #12 and have used it for several paintings. It feels like quality. It has a very sharp point if you hold correct. It is one of my best brush's. It can easily be used for whole paintings. Great snap back. No slop. The feel is incredible.
Great travel brush
from Strafford, MO
I was in pressed with this brush. It holds a good amount of water and retains a nice tip. The compact size makes it easy to carry along in my travel watercolor kit. I look forward to using this brush on my next travel sketching trip.

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.
