The very best travel brushes on the market, so good in fact, I use them at my home studio as well. The case is good even though it is not leather, it has all one needs in a case. Love the compass. For plein air painters, these are the best! FABULOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE AND WEBSITE!
I love these little suckers! They always come back to a point, very important! I take them to Starbucks and do little paintings. So fun!
Although fully aware of what I was purchasing I do wish they had made the case out of real leather. They have used particularly cheap looking faux leather. I also wish they would swap out a couple of brushes for a rigger and maybe a 1/4' flat. Would make it far more useful as a true field set. However the brushes are nice quality and fit the holders well for the most part although be warned they are more the length you would expect of an oil brush than a water color brush.
Would make a great gift item because they do look special and I suspect the cheapness of the case would be overlooked by most. The important part, the bristles themselves are very nice and handle well.
I received my set this week and they are beautiful, high quality brushes. I couldn't be more pleased with them. They have nicer points than the pictures show. I really only wanted a size 10 or 12 sable travel brush since I already have a few travel brushes in various smalleer sizes but the other brands are very expensive for a single large brush. For the price of one of them, I got this whole set of six(!) in different sizes and they are of comparable quality to the other sable travel brushes that I have (Escoda, Connoisseur, and Da Vinci sable brushes) . I like the cheetah print too; the brushes are rather elegant looking. The smallest one has rather long bristles and looks like it could well be used as a liner brush and for detail work.
The carrying case is not leather of course, but it is fairly nice. There is room to slip a few more travel brushes in the slots if you are so inclined.
Excellent product for the price. A touch soft for my taste, but the product is well made and I had a great customer service experience with the company.
