1-29-13. It was tough to find a U.S.A. made product of this type, but this is one. This brush appears to be well made, by today's standards, as poor as they are. That doesn't mean the brush is poorly made, but the alternatives seem to all be Chinese in origin and are poorly made. This Kraft tool replaced a 50 year old brush similar to it that cost me $1.70 new. The old brush had a very smooth fiinished rounded handle with the manufacturer's name and price physically impressed into the oak wood handle. It still has lots of bristles in it but 50 years of use has reduced it to my outdoor workshed use. The Kraft brush has a faily smooth handle that is obviously well-sanded and varnished/laquered (not sure which). The bristles appear to be well inserted in the drilled wholes. Time and use will tell if they stay put or fall out as the Chineses junk do. Not sure what wood is used for the handle but the brush is very light in weight, so I don't think it's oak. Price-wise it's a good...
I lost my old one on a job site to gremlins, when looking about at the local hardware and big box stores all I saw was cheapo plastic foxtails... But I wanted a wooden one! Surprisingly (or not) hard to find a wooden foxtail, much less a well constructed one. I don't care too much where it is made as long as it is well made (Made in America sure doesn't mean what it used to...or maybe it does). As Thule1 noted the Chinese made brushes are poorly made, bristles fall out, open grain wood, etc.
The Kraft Counter Duster is well made, the bristles are stiff but not too stiff.
I liked my old one better as the angled end went into corners a bit better. But as the name says, it is a Bricklayers and Counter Duster, so maybe it wasn't designed to get into tight corners...
I don't know why they call this a bricklayer's brush, but it's perfectly suited for the shop or lab. It is very well made, finished nicely and has medium soft bristles. I was actually looking for something a bit softer but in this age of the big box store and cheap crap from China, this is probably as good as it gets. Made in USA, high quality--it will serve my purposes quite nicely.
