Welcome to dickblick
Robert Simmons pioneered a revolution in synthetic brushes, creating a unique blend of filaments that perform so remarkably like pure red sable that they earn the name "White Sable." Simmons's White Sable brushes offer superb point and spring at a fraction of the cost of red sable.
The original synthetic artist's brushes for watercolor and acrylic are still guaranteed for life — just as they were when Robert Simmons introduced them in 1972.

Best Brushes Ever!
from Southwest Missouri
Comments about Robert Simmons White Sable Brushes:
I have used Robert Simmons' 785 series brushes both in the public school art classroom and for my personal artwork since the late l980s. The school brushes were lasting more than 20 years, with proper cleaning and conditioning. My personal brushes are still going strong after 30+ years, and I am just thankful that Dick Blick makes these beautiful brushes available at affordable prices, Thank you Dick Blick and Robert Simmons!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Really nice for watercolor
from California, CA
I saw some reviews saying that these are not soft and "hard" instead. They are actually pretty soft in my opinion. They hold water well and keep their pointy tip for tiny details (if you don't flood the brush with water that is, they do hold a lot of water). The only thing I don't like is the white bristle, only reason is that watercolor taint/dye them, so now my brush is this muddy black color with some red/blue/violet highlights.
Great To Paint With
from Chapel Hill, NC
These brushes are great because of their flexible effect especially when glazing. I use them with the Holbein Vernet oil paints that have a smooth quality to them. They work great. I highly recommend them.
That's right, I'm white

By Old timer
from Sheboygan, WI
I have used Robert Simmons watercolor brushes for many years and find them to be very good quality for the money.
from Galena, IL
The White Sables were my first watercolor brushes. I tried others such as Rosemary & Co.'s Kolinsky, Loew-Cornell Ultra Rounds, and Escoda Versatil. But my favorite are still the Robert Simmons White Sable rounds because of the amount of spring. Don't like floppy bristles.I just started replacing some of the brushes that are worn out and the new ones have a pointier tip...bonus!
