Welcome to dickblick
This hair comes from the Siberian and Manchurian Sable, better known under the name of Kolinsky. It is a small animal that lives in the coldest areas of these regions, giving it a very strong and dense hair, an ideal hair for watercolor. It has fantastic spring, snap, and color holding ability.
This watercolor brush has been carefully tested for professional designers and retouchers. It has a seamless nickel-plated brass ferrule, a short black polished handle, and a beige tip.

Comments about Raphaël Kolinsky Red Sable Extra Pointed Round Series 8408:
Wonderful for botanical watercolor art. I find it to hold a nice sharp point and also holds water well. I purchased the #3 and #4. Love them both and will purchase again when needed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this kolinsky! Handle, size brush tip...
from Monticello, florida
This is used for flowing paint! You just want to continue.
Buy at least one
Everyone should have at least one Kolinsky sable brush, and the smaller ones are not all that expensive. Enjoy

I would buy these again and again
By Botanist For Life
from Atlanta, Georgia
I'm a botanical artist and I love them. They keep a very fine point, which I need, they hold a lot of water, and they last for a very long time. I love them more than the Series 7......a lot more.

Love my Raphael brushes
By Desert Man
from Las Cruces, NM
These brushes exceeded my expectations ... I bought numbers 4 & 6...I have other Kolinsky sable brushes that are also very well made but these simply blew them away ... they hold wonderful points and I can control them to make extremely fine lines in watercolor ...great paint holding capacity and extremely responsive at the tip ... from very fine to very broad strokes these are a joy to paint with... really glad I got them.

this brush is really great! No lie! I love the point and the snap of the brush.
Best brush for botanical accuracy
from West Chester, PA
The quality is worth the price. The brush retains its point for a very long time, even with extensive usage.The belly holds just the right amount of water for continuous painting without having to reload frequently.
from Charlottesville, Va
I really like how fine of a point this brush has. It also holds paint really well so I don't have to reload it as much as other brushes I've used.
I love this brush
from Santa Cruz
This brush is extremely versatile. The extra pointed tip allows for extreme detail work, but the body holds a lot of paint.
