Welcome to dickblick
The Silver Brush Grand Prix Super Brush was made exclusively for Silver Brush by master brush makers. It contains 100% naturally curved Chungking white bristle with flagged and interlocked tips for maximum color carrying capability. It is for use with all techniques.
Bristles and handles are double sealed in seamless, corrosion-resistant copper ferrules and double crimped to long, green lacquered handles.
Extra Long Filbert
This brush is especially prized by portrait and figure painters for its sharp chisel edges. It offers fine control for detailed and broad strokes. It also holds more paint, so there is less reloading of color.

Comments about Silver Brush Grand Prix Super Filbert:
The brush fibers end up on the canvas. That's not a good thing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Although it's not uncommon for a new brush to shed a few hairs initially, this should not be excessive or prolonged. If you feel the brush is not performing as it should, please give us a call at 1-800-723-2787. Our Customer Care Agents will be happy to work with you!

Great brushes, fast delivery, great price.
good.. but not super
By Km Withers
from the Great Southwest
I have had many Silver brushes in my career .. and just recently I just purchased 11 more.. a mix of flats and filberts. My older ones are better. This batch had several below par brushes.. especially the small filberts. Silver brush is supposed to be very good.. and they are compared to others at this price.. but the filberts are poorly constructed.. used once and they splayed and would not hold their shape. So the search for a great working brush continues.
I love silverbrush brushes. I use them myself, and they are on my list of supplies for my students, they are beautiful brushes for accomplished artists as well as students. I don't like to teach with a lesser brush, crummy or cheap brushes can ruin a painting and at the very least make it much more difficult to achieve the desired effect. They clean up nicely, hold their shape, and last quite a long time. All of these are what I look for when buying brushes for oil painting.
love the brushes!

I recently purchase several Silver Brushes. If you haven't tried you should. They hold up and are just nice to paint with :)
Third purchase of this brush
from North Coast, OR
I use my Silver long filbert #4 to draw in my initial layout for a painting, and find these brushes so responsive, I ordered a couple of flats. They hold an edge and provide the 'feel' and response I so love in hog bristle. They're softer than the less expensive brands, but the longer I paint, the more I gravitate toward a softer brush.

Not Great - Student Quality with flyaway hairs
By Disappointed Oil Painter
Very disappointing. I bought these brushes after reading the great reviews; however the brushes I received were just terrible, and student grade. I washed them carefully in the Masters brush cleaner, and even tried to shape them flat (the Richard Schmid way!), however this didn't work. Lots of curly flyaway hairs, and the filberts were made terribly - they were kind of chopped into a filbert shape; so they were not evenly shaped. There appeared to be no quality control. Even loaded with paint, they are difficult to use because all the flyaway hairs leave behind a mess on my canvas. Maybe I just got a bad bunch; however the company should look into quality control as I don't know how these brushes were passed.
