* Like Frederick Weber's original set, only the thickest hairs resulting from the harvesting of male kolinsky in Russia's coldest months (January and February) are used.
* Males as the primary hunters of the food for the family unit have developed thicker hair over the centuries than the female of the species, which spend more of the winter in the den protecting their young.
* Only craftsman who have more than thirty years experience in natural hair arrangement are trusted with
* Preparing these brushes.
* Each individual brush is then carefully inspected by the factory manager.
* We have found no Kolinsky remotely comparable.
* Back off the pressure and you'd think you were painting with a single hair.
* As a true Kolinsky Brush you need not flick the brush to get the point.
* We have found that if an artist needs to flick the brush to get a point that this often results in paint flying in many undesired locations.
* You don't have to be royalty to afford it.
* 6 each of sizes 10/0-6 and 3 ea. of sizes 7-10
For a century and a half, the name Weber has been synonymous with quality art materials. Established in 1853 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Martin/F. Weber Co. is the oldest and one of the largest manufacturers of art materials in the United States.
Originating in 1853 as Scholz & Company, a sales agency, the company evolved through a series of growth partnerships to become F. Weber and Company in 1887, under the leadership of its owner, Frederick Weber. Throughout the late 19th century, F. Weber and Company offered a wide range of imported and manufactured products. A significant number of patents for innovative art products were awarded to the company.
