Welcome to dickblick
The Escoda Optimo Kolinsky Sable brushes are a marriage of beauty, form and function.
Snappy pristine Kolinsky hair is delicately hand crimped into a nickel brass ferrule. The short, blue, lacquered wood handle offers the control needed for detail work.
Painstaking attention is paid to every step of Escoda’s hand-crafted brushmaking process resulting in a piece that will be of service for years to come.

Really nice Kolinsky Sable Watercolor Brushes
Was looking for a Kolinsky Sable brush that wouldn't break my budget. The Escoda Optimo is a very nice Kolinsky at good price point. Has all the qualities that you look for in a sable brush and performs very well. I have one in a variety of sizes and all are very nice.
Great price! I have to wait until they are on a good sale. And they were and I bought several. I love these brushes. They hold their points beautifully.
Excellent brush for fine detail work

As a model horse painter, detail is what I pride myself on most. Achieving a life like look through hair by hair paint work, I rely on this brush to get the results I want.

I have just started to use these brushes, so far they promise to be a great addition to my watercolor brushes. I have used brushes by Escobar in the past and have loved them.

I brought these back to a Dick Blick art store after I had ordered them online. They were simply horrible and looked as if they had a very bad haircut! The salesperson was even horrified when she saw them. Not a good quality at all!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

There is definite difference between this Kolinsky vs. the mimic Kolinsky iin how smooth paint spreads on the water color paper. I'm just not certain that it makes that much difference to warrant the quadruple in the price. Since I've already splurged, I'm going to enjoy it. I did notice that the brush tip of the less expensive mimic brush is wearing out fast. I will do more review in the near future based on the true wear of this Kolinsky brush.
