Kolinsky Sable Brush Shortage

Due to regulatory issues regarding the importation of Kolinsky hair, we are temporarily out of stock on many of our more popular brush styles. Be assured that we are working with our vendors and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to remedy this situation as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience.

These superior brushes are made with natural hairs that are hand cupped to a full bodied shape that has a needle-sharp and split-proof point when wet. Set in seamless nickel ferrules securely fastened to black polished handles. Sized down to the very small for amazing control with detail.

If you would like to learn more about selecting the right fine art brush we recommend reading our 'Painter's Brush Kit' article.

    I hope to see a couple more reviews for Utrecht art supplies online in the near future, and this line of brushes is one of those products that deserves one. If your like me you have brushes that run from the dollar store value packs to the finest french made natural hair variety. I tend to not use my most expensive brushes most often in fear of wearing them unduly...but that is rubbish, anyway, I have found that I reach for my #8 Utrecht (Rhenish co) red sable over my series 7 brush of same size and I honestly really can't describe a serious difference between the two. The red sables are perhaps not superior to others in the field but the price and craftsman ship over all make them a very good deal. If you want to step up to a natural hair brush for watercolor then this would be a good option to test the waters! My #8 holds a lot of fluid paint and I can do some serious sketching and even some med. size washes without having to reload constantly. Want to get a nice deep stroke of color going in a watercolor work, you'll need a natural hair brush..synthetics are close but pale in side by side comp. This is my best suggestion for a mid range/priced red sable brush...it may be sold through Utrecht but they are a finely made German brush and worth the cost easily.
