A Kolinsky Sable hair brush is a fine artists paint brush. The hair is obtained from the tail of the Kolinsky a species of weasel rather than an actual sable. The weasel is not an animal that is raised well in captivity and is generally isolated to Siberia. Due to the difficulty in harvesting the hair, and the fact that other natural and artificial bristles are not comparable in quality, these bristles are rare and expensive.

This brush works fantastically, and is such a pleasure to use! This brush is the best of its size that I have used in my 20 year career as a miniature painter. The tip stays sharp and springs back. The bristles retain enough paint for a smooth even paint stroke. Thoroughly recommended for use on smaller areas of miniatures such as faces.
