Welcome to dickblick
Back and better than ever, these fine brushes are handmade to our exacting standards and imported solely for Blick.
Only the highest-quality brush hair finds its way into Blick Masterstroke Pure Red Sable brushes. Hand-selected and hand-cupped by skilled artisans, this highly resilient hair offers unsurpassed spring, snap, and control.
Every brush is hand-glued into a seamless, nickel-plated brass ferrule and securely crimped to a matte black solid wood handle with a distinctive gold tip.
Bright and Flat — A Bright is a short flat brush that absorbs less color and has a stiffer stroke. A Flat is longer than a Bright and is consequently more flexible at the tip.
Brush sizes — The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.

Not a fan of these brushes
Comments about Blick Masterstroke Finest Red Sable Flat:
I wanted to see what the sable brushes felt like so I though I would try an affordable line. I purchased two of the Blick Masterstroke Sable brush and they are both terrible. The bristles do not lay together cleanly, they splay out randomly. I tried to use them both several times thinking maybe they would fall in line. No luck.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Blick Masterstroke Finest Red Sable Bright Brushes:
I have finally found the perfect brush after searching for so long. I use these for detail work on my oil paintings and I eat through sable brushes very quickly. This brush retains its shape and spring and, (the bright /flat brush) continues to produce sharp edges, long after other brushes have thrown in the towel! Very impressed!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This brush "runs small."
By Usually haPpy
I like the material,however, it's thin and thus doesn't hold the amount of pigment/water that my other brushes the same size can carry. I'd like it to be fuller. Perhaps I'll try a 16 to achieve the performance of a 12.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. As we note on the web pages for all brushes, numbered sizes are not standardized — measurements will vary, even in different brush lines from the same manufacturer. To aid our customers in brush selection, we list the physical measurements of the tuft for each brush. If you ever have questions on brush sizes, we hope you'll feel welcome to reach out to our Product Information Team. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they're happy to guide you!

I am extremely dissatisfied with this brush
By Leah K
from Hopkins, MN
I bought a short handled round #4 today and it does not hold its shape, thus making it very difficult to work with. Definitely not worth the price. The cheap round brush (which doesn't have a size other than "small") that I was hoping to replace paints better than this one.
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us. We're sorry to hear that this brush isn't working well for you. We'd like to take care of this to make sure our brushes are performing as we expect as well as making sure you have a brush that meets your needs. We hope you'll please call us at 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or email email@example.com. We look forward to working with you to resolve this!

Wow! Great detail brushes, even for oil

Love the Blick Masterstroke series,especially these bright MS ones for my bird paintings- oil-on-canvas
from Providence, RI
I am not satisfied with the red sable brush #5
from sacramento, ca
I was happy to get this brush but unhappy that it does not keep it's form. Hairs (for want of a better definition) stick out and the brush does not hold a clean point. This stray hairs cause paint to get on areas not intended. Am going to return this brush if allowed.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that there was a problem with the brush you received, and we would very much like to get that back from you so we can investigate further. We take the quality of these brushes very seriously, and we'll be in touch with you soon to help with this.
