Just started using this brush on a painting project. It cuts a good line. The paint flows good when using this brush for fine finish work. It’s great for semi-gloss finishes such as doors and trimwork, it does not leave heavy brush strokes.
Highly recommend for any painting project big or small.

Nice brush that lays down the stain or polyurethane and leaves a smooth surface. I was using this brush with Minwax Polyshades on white pine for and indoor project. Easy to cleanup with paint thinners and store for future use.

Been painting more & more. And there are times when I do get SO busy and time gets away from me and I forget to wash out my paint brushes. And I can’t afford to go down to Home Depot or Lowes and spend $15 or $20 on a “Purdy” paint brush !! So Harbor Freight has these good, better, best type brushes.
The “good” are 1 time throw aways. The best are natural animal hair brushes and to me, paint sticks to them too much. So really the “better” in the middle is the best all around paint brush. Paint goes on nicely, paint finish is good, clean up is breeze.
Cost is very good. And they come in 1in. To 4in. Regular tip or angle tip.
A good brush at a reasonable price. Not the “best” but at least half the price! Used it to stain a deck with a water based stain. What I like best about the brush is that it is extremely durable! Not sure about paint finish quality since I didn’t use it for that.
But I will definitely give it a try when the time comes.
You can use this paintbrush with little or no worry about bristles falling out and ruining your work. The cheaper line had this issue when the paint began to tug a bit on the bristles. I was using this to apply a rust preventative treatment on a classic car.

The Purdy’s Ox-Hair Brushes have the softest natural bristles in our family of brushes. The are designed for use with oil-based paints, stains and clears. From fine artistry to staining furniture, doors or woodwork, nothing can match the glass like finish produced by these bristles.
I have purchased many Purdy products and have always been very happy with them. I. am starting to redecorate my home and have 16 internal doors to remove, sand and paint. I bought a Purdy 2 1/2” Ox-Hair paint brush among other Purdy brushes as i wanted a mirror finish on my doors, hence the removing, sanding, priming, undercoating before applying the top coats of high gloss.
At first i was reluctant to pay the extremely high price being charged on Amazon (£52) which included the very high delivery charge as it was coming from Poland, seems you cannot buy them from a UK retailer, this is something which Purdy need to address.
I finally bit the bullet and paid the price as i wanted a 5 star finish. Well, i have got a brilliant finish so that part has been achieved but the brush is losing so many bristles that after every stroke i had to look very carefully to remove bristles from my paintwork, this meant the painting took a very long time and i had to mix Owatrol Oil with the paint otherwise it was drying out and streaking before i had finished painting.
I am hoping i have just bought a ‘bad brush’ as i cannot believe all their Ox-Hair brushes have this problem. I still would like to buy a 1 1/2” and a 2” Ox-Hair brush and another 2 1/2” brush (hopefully one which isn’t moulting) and i am am hoping Purdy can allow me to purchase directly from them in the UK and not forcing me to pay the ridiculous overseas delivery charge.
I hope Purdy can help me with this as before this issue with the Ox-Hair brush i think their products are 5*.
We are working on a project to restore a keyboard instrument. After researching quite a bit we decided to paint the bulk of the case with an oil paint. Much time has been spent sanding, priming, sanding, priming.
Before getting the paint to start adding the color coats we researched brushes and found fairly unanimous advice that using a bristle + ox hair blend would yield the smoothest, finish. So we bit the bullet and purchased a 2.
5″ Ox-O-Angular (about $25). The good part is that finish does seem to flow on pretty smoothly as long as one can work fast and use very light strokes. However, the brush is very unstable. It makes almost no difference how smoothly it flows on because the bristles are constantly coming loose so that one has to use a tweezer of toothpick to pull them out of the paint surface and then try to reflow the paint again, hoping it has not dried enough to drag.
Unfortunately this is not always the case. I truly expected much better quality from a premium-priced brush. At this point, I am inspecting the brush after each dip in the paint under a high intensity light and trying to pick out any loose bristles before they appear on my work piece surface.
This is still not 100% successful. We’re talking very small panels. So far I’ve done two coats on approximately 8 sq ft of surface and have picked out about 50 bristles. I have to think this brush may be defective or else no one would use these products and recommend them.
There is no way you could use this to paint any significantly sized surfaces like fine wood trim because the inspection process is just too time consuming. Finally I’ll add that the brush cleans up nicely with mineral spirits.
The loose bristle problem was apparent immediately upon removing the new brush from the keeper and also after having cleaned it though. I’d really be interested to know whether Purdy folks believe this performance is expected or an unfortunate exception.
I have always purchased Purdy paint brushes and own many different types but this is my first Ox hair (OX-o-thin) as I wanted a brush for finishing a project with polyurethane and didn’t want to use foam brushes as I have for smaller projects.
After purchasing two ox-o brushes I combed them to get anything left during manufacturing as well as any possible lose bristle hairs and I was surprised at how many lost ones came out. After thinking I got all of them as combing no longer was removing loose bristle hairs, I started to use it.
I found that as I used it, more bristle hairs were being left behind on my project in the poly causing me to stop,wipe to remove said bristle hair, recover that area with poly and move forwards. This wasn’t a one time but happened many times causing me to have to inspect after completing an area before moving on to make sure no bristles were left behind.
Highly disappointed in this brush and will not purchase again therefore I cannot recommend it. Sadly the cheap Chinese brushes are better.

You can tell immediatly this is a very high quality brush. The bristles are sooo soft and it applied paint very well. Word of warning to fellow beginners that you should really wash the brushes *ASAP* after use, before the paint dries on the bristles at all (this paint dries very fast, especially in my dry southwestern state) to keep them in good shape (Clare was great about advising that on their blog).
The only thing that was difficult about this brush was the ergonomics–my hand was pretty sore after two days of painting, but I also think this is just the realities of most paint brushes. It would be great if for the price a more ergonomic handle could be used.
As the result of extensive testing, this customized blend of the highest-quality nylon and polyester filaments provides exceptional paint capacity for the fastest results. Just-right flex and taper for complete, even coverage.

Finally, wash the brush in soapy water and rinse it again with clean water.
