If anyone is thinking of buying some new brushes, pop to Toolstation and buy a few of these Kana paint brushes. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. You can pick them up online, they’re cheap and can be used in any type of paint.
I’ve Put my 3inch Kana though it’s passes in the last few weeks. it’s had a few hot days with Dulux Weathershield, more warm days with barnpaint, a fair amount of undercoating, fair number of ceilings with coving and today painted my outside bar with cuprinol shades. It even works well with stain and varnish.
I’m very happy with it and still acts as though it’s a new brush. I have had 5 bristles come out so far in the last few weeks, which is minimul. It holds a good amount of paint, distribution is perfect and it holds its shape. I’d be happy to never buy another Picasso, Purdy, Hamilton, Blaze, Wooster and the all the others again. (Well apart from Nour). Kana arfe made by Ciret, this is their website.
Other brushes by Kana include the Tank, which is awesome. This is a stain and varnish brush; excellent in products like Osmo Oil, or even when painting a fence. The Tank is a strange brush, with a blend of both natural and pure bristles. It works though!! It holds the thin material deep in the brush and won’t flick it out while you’re using it.
There is the Kana Star too. The Star has a plastic ferrule, looks good, but is uncomfortable to use. It’s just a little bit top heavy, meaning you hand starts to ache after you’ve been using it for a period.
It’s a big thumbs up from me 👍👍 – Click here to see online prices.
