A fun brush!
from Western New York State
Right out of the packaging, the top copper wire fell right off the brush. Not even sure I need to put it back on. We'll see. Lost on star for this. Tried it out and I had fun with it. Holds lots of water and paint!! Used it mainly for backgrounds and it does the job quickly. I also used this mop to throw paint at my picture and when I was done, I noticed I had paint all over the studio!! LOL
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Quills - Don't pass these up
from Kittanning, Pa.
I love these quills. I have the 60 and 80 and want to get the 120 and 220!!!!!!!! its amazing to think you could buy these size quills under 25 dollars and have nice brushes at the same time
Good for the money
Nice brush, holds lots of watercolor, very fat to very thin brush strokes. Great price, too.

No ferrule? Handle IS ferrule? novel construction
from New Orleans
"Golden taklon" (Silver Brush's "golden" term can mean natural-hair mixed with synthetic fibers) mop-slash-quill brush with no visible ferrule! Or, is it a fully WOODEN ferrule? You can see the construction in any of Blick's on-line images. Usual "quill" brushes have ferrules of bird's-feather quill or of similar clear plastic, which is wrapped to overlap both the end of the wood handle and the base of all the bristles, then is bound with metal wires. This brush has the metal wires but no quill or quill-like plastic wrap, so it APPEARS to have no ferrule at all. There may be a few disadvantages to the typical quill-ferrule construction, such as that the wrapper can loosen with age, or leak at the joint and allow staining, the wires can fray or rust, or they can catch their tips in your towel. This brush's novel construction does not necessarily avoid such worries and I'm not sure of other advantages. The shellaq (or sealant or whatever it is) that covers the entire wooden handle does extend right up to and over the end of the wood that abutts the bristles (also visible in images, zoom in!), but there isn't any clogging or droplet connection, so all bristles appear as tho' the company first shellaqed the wood, let dry, inserted bristles (to over-pack the wood?), bound with wire (to re-constrict the wood?). Interesting but unexplained (as yet) construction. I find the bristles hold a fine point and the belly holds significant water, but not as much as a more expensive all-natural normal-construction quill by (f.e.) W&N or Yarka. A little less water is actually helpful to me, since my painting situations for pointed-quill-mop often border on round-brush situations anyway. Good intermediate between quill-mop or hake that is TOO wet, and round that might be TOO dry, but funny construction may be an ultimate downfall. Some others report that these bristles fray with some age, too, so, we'll see.
