Escoda Optimo Kolinsky Sable Filbert

Escoda's Series 2813 brush, the Optimo, is a Kolinksy Filbert "Cat's Tongue" in an oil painting format, with a long wooden handle. The fine Kolinsky hair forms a soft tuft with a snappy edge, great for delicate, controlled work.

This "Cat's Tongue" shape is popular among European painters. In comparison to the traditional almond-shaped filbert, it provides more edges and surfaces. Depending how it's held, the brush can be used for drawing fine lines, curves, and strokes, or for filling in larger areas of color.

Escoda's Kolinsky sable hair is unusually resilient with superior snap, point, and flow control. Escoda takes great care in curing brush hair to create a brush that will retain its original shape over a long working life.

This luxurious hair is artfully crimped in a nickel-plated brass ferrule The long, lacquered blue wooden handle is ideal for easel work and larger pieces. It's attached to the ferrule via Escodas exclusive triple crimping process.
