Great for water soluble oils
After a lot of trial and error, I discovered these for water soluble paints. Flats and rounds hold their shape through many cleanings and last a lot longer than other brands I have tried.
Great versatile brushes

Comments about Silver Brush Bristlon Dagger Striper Brush:
Great versatile brushes, didn't take long to adjust to their shape either. Will definitely be using more daggers in the future.
Very happy with these brushes
I use these for water soluble oils and so far are my favorite. They hold their shape well, have a good spring and the smaller sizes are great with detail.
Love the brush but came off the handle with normal use
from Portland Oregon
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.
The Silver Brush Briston flats and rounds are terrific!

These are the best synthetic brushes on the market.

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.
