Love the brush but came off the handle with normal use

Comments about Silver Brush Bristlon Stiff White Synthetic Brushes:
I find myself coming back to my two silver flats over and over compared to other brushes I have purchased. As many expressed before, they hold their shape, they lay paint down just where you want it, the stiffness is just right. But one day the ferrule just came off the handle of one of them. I use them exclusively for oils, and feel I do take good care of my brushes. They never sit in solvent, I am a fairly thin painter, not pushing my brush to do anything unusual. Maybe it's an unusual occurrence, but I have had my brushes for about 6 months. Until now I would have highly recommended this brush.

These are the best synthetic brushes on the market.
By Julia Haw
from Brooklyn, NY
I have used Silver Bristleon Brushes Series 1900 Rounds for YEARS. They retain their shape and snap for longer than any other synthetic I've tried out there. Even when the bristles get a little splayed they still have a lot of resilience. I supplement with Old Holland Kolinsky Sables.
Bristlon brushes are economic.

I love using the Bristlon Brights to sculpt my painting.
Really nice feel
By Topher Essex
from Chino Ca
Nice brushes, good feel and looks like they will stand up to the abuse I give all my brushes. As a full time visual artist, I am not kind to my brushes. The don't sit around, they get used!!!! Love the long handles.
I highly recommend these brushes
from Guin Al
I love my new brushes.
I have been buying these brushes for years
Best synthetic bristle brushes for my oil painting projects. They last longer then any other that I have tried
from Truckee, CA
I use these brushes to paint in oil. I really like them because they last and don't seem to fray. They are very easy to clean and aren't ruined when I use soap and water for clean up.
I would buy again

As a long time devotee of pure bristle brushes for oil painting, this has rocked my world.These brushes lay down paint easier, retain their spring, retain their shape and clean up easier!I don't have a heavy hand and laying down paint on a fresh canvas (yes, primed) can be difficult because of the drag, unless I use a lot of medium. This brush makes it a joy!And then the easy clean up and retention of shape is the cherry on top!
