Escoda's Black Sable — also known as fitch or polecat hair — is less stiff than light ox hair at around the same price. An alternative to bristle, this handcrafted brush is often used when painting with thinned oil colors for more detailed work.
Escoda specially cures each brush for increased resiliency and versatility, making it a pleasure to use. The long, red, lacquered handle offers plenty of control, and is attached to the nickel ferrule using Escoda's exclusive triple crimping process.
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.
