Welcome to dickblick
These are exquisite handmade pure Kolinsky sable brushes that exhibit an unparalleled combination of softness, spring, and snap. They are ideal for precision, detailed work.
Each brush is painstakingly handcrafted from the finest quality, hand-selected Kolinsky sable from one of the coldest climates on earth — Siberia. The hair is sourced only during the winter months, producing the longest, densest, and most luxurious hair. This allows for the most precise point or edge possible in a brush.
These brushes feature long lacquered handles with seamless nickel-plated ferrules.

Comments about Isabey Pure Kolinsky Sable Brushes:
I use the smallest size brushes with water-soluble oils. They pick up paint easily and hold their shape consistently throughout the stroke. I've only been using these brushes for about two weeks. I use da Vinci soap to clean them. They still work as good as new. I look forward to purchasing more of these gorgeous brushes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Isabel fat filbert brushes
from Petaluma, CA
Comments about Isabey Pure Kolinsky Sable Filbert:
Isabel fat filbert brushes are some of my favorite oil painting brushes. They are well made and as long as you clean them properly, they will last a very long time. My favorite use is for glazing.
Sable is king
from rochester, NY
Since I am painting images of victorian houses, the work requires a hard edge and fine detail. The bright I purchased works perfectly, and is so much netter than synthetics because the bristles do not separate.

This is the first time I bought Isabey from Blick online. I usually buy Series 7 brushes. Be aware that a #1 brush is way smaller that a #1 series 7.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from West Virginia
I use a #2 round for all of my detail work. I started using it after watching Kassan's "Painting a Life". It holds its shape amazingly well, which helps because it is soft yet stiff enough to fight the pressure from the brushstroke. I've used it for two paintings and it still looks new. No complaints yet.
from Cedar park tx
This is truly a great brush! It is soft but with remarkable spring and control. The first time I used it, I was amazed of how many different effects can be achieved with this brush. It gives so much more depth to the painting than any other brush. It also lasts long. After many uses it still feels as great as the first time I ever got to use it.

UNDISPUTEDLY THE VERY BEST
By Johnny One Boat
from West Haven, Connecticut
I've used pure red sable all my life for show cards and other lettering applications but since kolinskys began coming into the forefront, I had to try them. They do the job of a sable but with a different feel, smoother with less drag, somewhat better resavoir, not much snap but firm with a silky stroke. I don't own many but every so often, I like to use one as a diversion to my 50+ year old Grumbacher Red Sables.
