This hair, which has a golden red fawn appearance, has incomparable vigour, springiness and elasticity. Thanks to its flag, it is the perfect bristle for precision work and fine details. It is the ideal extra-fine hair for all artists' brushes, but historically its price has been higher than gold.

These things are the best. Watercolor, inks, etc. Their points hold up incredibly well and will last a helluva long time. Expensive but worth it, though I feel the cheaper ones you can get through amazon are cheaper for a reason. Get them through more legit art places like Blick.
These are the greatest brushes that are now very hard to get. Too bad. I hope they become available again. Great points, great snap, great balance.
These are hands down the best kolinksy brushes i've used for painting small objects and miniatures.
I've used: - Windsor and Newton Series 7 and series 7 special (made for miniatures) - Davinci - Escoda - Raphael
The Raphael 8404's just have a better bounce and quality point to them. The similar sized W&N lasted only half as long as my Raphaels and had more stray hairs.
After long use of each, Raphael has had much better quality control and output than anything else.
