Welcome to dickblick
These are exquisite handmade pure Kolinsky sable brushes that exhibit an unparalleled combination of softness, spring, and snap. They are ideal for precision, detailed work.
Each brush is painstakingly handcrafted from the finest quality, hand-selected Kolinsky sable from one of the coldest climates on earth — Siberia. The hair is sourced only during the winter months, producing the longest, densest, and most luxurious hair. This allows for the most precise point or edge possible in a brush.
These brushes feature long lacquered handles with seamless nickel-plated ferrules.
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.

Comments about Isabey Pure Kolinsky Sable Round Series 6116:
Wonderful for oil painters, I've seen many established painters at the Art Student's League relying on these brushes.
Will buy again
from Lenoir City, TN
I love these brushes. I use them with water-soluble oils. The sable hairs comes to a fine thin edge and spread the paint on cotton canvas and gessobord. The brushes can pick up as much or as little paint as needed. They perform as described on the website. I've only used these brushes for all my fine details so I I can't say if there is a better brush.
holds the point like a boss
from Portland, Or
these Isabey kolinski sable detail brushes have the best point I have experienced and though expensive - in this case, you get what you pay for
I use these brushes with water-soluble oils. I use the smallest numbered brushes that easily pick up very small amounts of paint and apply it to the canvas for great detail.

Comments about Isabey Pure Kolinsky Sable Filbert:
Have not used the brush very much, but really. Like it very much. I have a few of their brushes and reall like them.
I use the smallest size brushes with water-soluble oils. They pick up paint easily and hold their shape consistently throughout the stroke. I've only been using these brushes for about two weeks. I use da Vinci soap to clean them. They still work as good as new. I look forward to purchasing more of these gorgeous brushes.
Isabel fat filbert brushes
from Petaluma, CA
Isabel fat filbert brushes are some of my favorite oil painting brushes. They are well made and as long as you clean them properly, they will last a very long time. My favorite use is for glazing.
Sable is king
from rochester, NY
Since I am painting images of victorian houses, the work requires a hard edge and fine detail. The bright I purchased works perfectly, and is so much netter than synthetics because the bristles do not separate.
