Factory 2nds - Cheetah Series - 6 Brush Set (no case)

Only Brushes

Notify me when this product is available:

Our Cheetah Brushes are carefully selected from our production line, but sometimes there are brushes that don't perfectly meet spec. We have completed our Cheetah Series limited sets, and what remains are considered Factory 2nds. (Currently, we are preparing a new Series set {shooting for January 2022} and may reintroduce an upgraded version of the Cheetah Series down the line, but until then if you had your heart set on the Cheetah's, Factory 2nds will be your best bet.)

Issues that occur such as glue overflows, convex pressure points too thin or missing entirely (causing a loose fitting), chips in the lacquered wood handle, smudged logo and/or brush #, crimps in the ferrule, dents and/or scratches in ferrule, dents in the cover handle, slight angle off-setting/gluing of the brush end.

One or all of these possible imperfections may be contained in each brush, but all brushes within our Factory 2nds will have intact brush tufts that will perform for many years with proper care. 

*** We no longer have any of the faux-leather cases and the brushes will be packaged as a free set, encased only in cardboard and cellophane wrapping.

Our final inspection before shipment ensures brush tufts are resealed in new gum arabic to maintain their points until they’re in your hands. On occasion there may be remnants of gum arabic left on the ferrule, that can easily be wiped off upon first use with water (or alcohol/cleaner if the buildup is persistent).

Bottom line, most Factory 2nd customers have trouble spotting these particular issues listed above without a keen eye and have been pleased with their brush sets.

We hope you will enjoy using your Cheetah Series - Factory 2nds sets for many years of adventures!

[ IMPORTANT: Factory 2nds brushes will be packaged as a free set, encased only in cardboard and cellophane wrapping. No Canister & no faux leather brush case.

All Sales are FINAL... unless you experience some serious defect you feel is outside the range of the description above, otherwise contact us immediately and we can provide a remedy.]

Lovely! Such a joy to paint with. I could not find any reason for these brushes to be considered ...

These brushes are a joy to use. They perform better than my red sable from Rosemary & co.

Thank you Jennifer!
That's kind of you to say. We're excited they're working out so well for you. Keep on painting!

Nothing wrong with these so-called "factory seconds"

These brushes have no imperfections that I can find, and I've really looked! They hold water and reshape to a point very well. The price for 6 travel brushes was reasonable, too!

We're excited they're in your hands. Glad you found them to your liking and we're looking forward to seeing some of your adventures in watercolor! Thanks, Kim.

Amazing Brushes

As described, it is hard to believe these are 2nds. I I am presently using these to watercolor pen and ink sketches.

Seconds Travel Brush set

I have not been able to work out why these brushes are labelled as seconds....maybe possibly the odd hair that sticks out at an angle when dry but is back in place when wet. Great brushes, great set and love the pattern on the barrel.
