    No, but will consider buying them as my local paint shop are always sold out of purdys whenever I ask. Read a couple of good online reviews about these brushes.

    I sell hundreds and hundreds of those box sets, created a bit of a shortage earlier in the year when i bought all of Dixons stock.

    Feedback has been really very good on them, when i used to run crown in Derby, I sold out in 2 days.

    12 seems a little pricey, is that including or excluding vat? I normally sell them at 7.49 plus vat

    I use Anza paint brushes. They are oval and of pure bristle. I've never taken to these synthetic brushes and don't go a pile on water based paints for woodwork etc.
    When I worked in Germany in the mid-90's, all you could get were oval brushes. You can cut in with them from day 1. Wouldn't go back to a standard brush.

    Must admit I do like an oval brush, my fave being Hamiltons Namel-var, Anza is part of the Hamilton group so I'm guessing they based it on the Anza. I see they have introduced a couple of synthetic oval ranges too.
    I love synthetic - Wooster the most because of the lack of filament loss, its very rare I use a paint brush for more than a few days at a time, so they're ideal for me

    I used to use Namel-Vars too but they are really expensive and wear down really quickly. In Germany, we used Wistoba brushes, but they aren't available here. Sikkens also used to make their own range of clear handled oval brushes. They were an excellent brush.

    Yeah they are pricey, loads of people have started complaining about Hamiltons wearing down really quickly, I only keep a very small range now for the die hards that won't even consider a different brand!
    Sikkens did really? Used to work for Akzo Nobel and didn't see a paint brush once! Ii wonder if I can get the Wistoba shipped over, I deal with an import company for the US paint I stock, its a pain getting things airshipped over but worth it to offer better products, consumers choice and all that!

    Both companies have some really nice painting kit.

    cheers me dears, I shall get onto them in the morning and see about getting some samples sent over.

    Any suggestions on Sash Brushes? I've had some samples sent from a company who have everything privately labelled, they're fab brushes but too pricey by having a third party, must find out who makes them, I really dislike the Hamilton ones they're far too rounded

    i buy these brushes all the time there pretty cheap in the multi size pack and they do last if you look after them but we keep them for one job then just sling them good for emulsion,glossing,eggshell and most applications

    Default cutting edge brushes

    i have been painting and decorating now for over 40 years and these brushes are every bit as good as any purdy and of course at a fraction of the price i would recomend these to anybody who wants a quality professional finish.

    wouldnt know about the purdys but i had a hamilton box set and the brushes were pretty crap. gloss would just run straight off them and the bristles went out of shape really easily and kept falling out. and the set cost me almost 30

    id take the maxim over hamiltons anyday! they are great for application of all paints water or oil. varnish`s oils and stains
