Welcome to dickblick
Every Robert Simmons Signet brush is handmade using high-quality Chungking hog bristle, interlocked and deep-set in an extra-long, seamless, nickel-plated ferrule. Long beech wood handles are treated with five coats of lacquer.
Ideal for acrylics and oils, these resilient brushes are guaranteed for life.
Series 43, Egbert
The egbert brush is a longer version of the filbert. It holds more color, and it flexes. With skill, it can generate stylized strokes and curves that are not possible with any other brush.

Signet Filbert brushes

Comments about Robert Simmons Signet Filbert Series 42 and 43:
I have been using Robert Simmons brushes in my own work for possibly 20 years. My favorite brushes are the filbert. They last a long time and offer me real control. I started using them in a high school art room about the same time and they have proven to be the most long lasting brush I have bought. They cost me more money, but I get two good years out of them as top brushes, then have students continue to use them in various ways for a year or two afterwards. They are terrific and I highly recommend them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A brush above the rest
By Mrs Sam
Robert Simmons Signet brushes release oil paint predictably and reliably. They are suberbly crafted - no brush hairs in your painting!! They are long lasting and clean up thoroughly.
A great block-in brush

I like to use the Egbert brushes for my block-in because it helps me to stay loose.

The Signet is my most used brush in my studio. It's great for "blocking in" to finish work. These brushes are strong, dependable, and capable of withstanding a lot of abuse.
These are great for scumbling and if you wash them, they last a long time.
Best Brush Manufacturer
By paint like you mean it!
I repeatedly come back to Robert Simmons brand for predictable quality. They are the 'favorite brushes' I reached for with for learning oils(Signet) and teaching acrylics(Simply & Sienna). And as far as durability - I still have and use one of my Grandfather's Signets from the 1950s or 60s!!!
By Van Gogh Admirer
I have purchased a few sets of these brushes to use. The set package has inconsistent quality. One set was delivered damaged and was replaced by Blicks which encouraged me to order and try more sets. The second batch arrived and one of the brushes fell apart after the first use. The individual brushes seems to have higher quality. Time will tell. Maybe Signet brushes are not what they use to be. I am disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
