Escoda Opera Takatsu is a synthetic filament that has a feel that is almost identical to traditional sable, but much more robust.
The extra natural spring and resilience of the blended filaments makes it an excellent choice for acrylics and oils. The Escoda curing process creates a brush head that consistently snaps back to its original shape.
The long, red-lacquered wood handle is triple crimped to the nickel-plated brass ferrule.
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.
