Welcome to dickblick
This is a professional range of supple 100% natural Chungking bristle brushes. Interlocked hairs with an abundance of flags hold lots of color and retain their shape well.

Princeton Best Natural Bristle Brushes can be used with oil and acrylic paints.
Best Natural Bristle Egbert
Egberts are essentially elongated filberts, and are brushes that have become truly rare. They hold more color, and allow for stylized strokes in expert hands.
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.
™ Princeton is a trademark.

Comments about Princeton Series 5400 Refine Best Natural Bristle Filbert and Egbert:
I bought an egbert for a grass technique I saw in a book. The bristles are way too soft. If you want soft bristles you will probably like these brushes but if you are looking for a good chungking bristle you probably won't like them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry this brush didn't make quite the stroke you were looking for. For assistance in choosing a stiffer egbert, we hope you'll feel welcome to touch base with our Product Information Department. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or email@example.com, and they're happy to help!

These brushes stand up to vigorous scrubbing and only lose a few bristles at initial use!

Never A Disappointment
from Klickitat, WA
After purchasing several of the Princeton 5400 series brushes in a variety of sizes and shapes, I can say I highly recommend these, and other Princeton brushes, without reservation, to artists of any level of expertise..I use these brushes for oils in medium format paintings. The 'Egbert' (5400EG)is one of my favorites as an alternative to softer Mongoose.These brushes are manufactured in India, and I feel they could easily hold their own against most of the other top-of-the-line brushes available.An unusual variety of shapes, superb quality (tight ferrules, perfectly proportioned bristles, and a durable coating on a nicely proportioned handle, make these brushes the ones I reach for first.

IT'S ABOUT BACKBONE
By Acrylic lover
from North Bend, OR
All its other qualities aside, one should mention backbone. Not a criticism but if you want an extra supple hog bristle brush this will qualify. If you need a stiffer backbone this one is not the one. All depends on what you need. Stiff and strong backbone - not this one. Supple, soft - this one will be fine.

functional for the price
from New Hampshire
I use these for painting in oils on relatively small boards. They do not keep their shape real well, so are not useful for detail work, but are nice and flexible and apply paint well in large areas. A true case of you get what you pay for.
