Axus Decorating Tools Review - roller and paintbrush

Axus Decorating Tools Review

By Dean of S.M. Decorating Services


I said I would let a few of you on the Forum what I thought of these Axus decorating tools, so here is my review. You can buy both these products and loads of other Axus stuff online at the Paint Shed, or loads of other different outlets.


Axus Silk Precision Cutter Paintbrush


Found the Axus Silk Precision cutter hard work! The paintbrush holds a decent amount of paint, but its too stiff for me. They say it’s a ‘precision cutter’, but I found it hard to actually cut in with it!



I’m not used to the angled brush though, so maybe when I get used to it then it won’t be so bad.


Also not used to a short handle, it gave me thumb cramp and felt like I was going to drop it all the time 😆


I was using Diamond Matt so maybe in another paint it might work better. Something that drags a bit more and demands a stiffer brush.



Axus Medium Pile Blue Roller


I like it so far! Nice, even and smooth finish.


I gave it a good wash first and haven’t experienced any shedding at all, which is unusual for a new roller sleeve. I guess time will tell with these but at £3 A SLEEVE you can’t go wrong. This represents unbelievable value for money!!


Roller arm is very sturdy and also like that so far.


Hope this helps some of you 🙂
