A brand new, high-quality brush line for fine details

We are pleased to introduce our new brush series for creating the finest details. It is available from the smallest size 20-0 up to size 2. Size 20-0 has an incredibly small diameter of just 0.42 mm / 0.0165 inches. Our synthetic “Martisan Kolinsky” with its high elasticity, stability and fine tips allows for very detailed work.

The newly developed triangular handles are very comfortable to hold and allows precise control of the brush. When you place the brush on the workstation, it does not roll off the table, which makes a quick change of different brushes possible.

This high-quality brush series will be available from June 2019 as single brushes packed in packs of 12 pieces of each size, or as a small set consisting of size 20-0, 10-0, 5-0 and 3-0, and a large set with sizes 2-0, 0, 1 and 2.
