Redtree Badger Hair Brushes

Badger Hair brushes are ideal for varnish, topside and high-gloss marine coatings. Badger brushes have a bushy appearance as the hair is stiff and tight near the root but soft at the tip. This soft bushy tip allows the bristles to hold more varnish.

Badger hair is somewhat stiff even in longer lengths. Most badger-hair brushes have a fan or round shape with a flat top for blending.

    These brushes are absolutely SUPERB! I have used exactly ONE 1.5" badger hair brush to varnish ALL the exterior teak (comanionway boards, coaming, winch pocket surrounds, folding cockpit table, ten-loop S&P handrails, and all the hatch cover surrounds) on my 30 ft sailboat. I have now finished six coats and intend to apply two more! The result is absolutely FABULOUS! Brush marks in the varnish disappear in 15 seconds, there are ZERO issues with air bubbles, and except for a few hairs coming off on the very first coat...there have been ZERO since. The brush applies varnish like silk, cleans easily and is soon ready for the next application. I will NEVER use anything but a badger hair brush for varnish again.

    These are impostor badger brushes, they do not hold up well in comparison to the last batch I purchased here in 07. They puff up and lose their shape rapidly and the hairs are not as tightly packed as they used to be (so they do not hold as much material), and they are of a lower quality. I use these for interior shellac and varnish millwork. I am looking for a different source and brand now.

      Comments about Redtree Badger Hair Brushes:

      I used this product for varnishing. It's possible to remove the whole bristles when they come off if you see them, but the pieces are impossible. These were 1/4 inch or shorter. I sanded and did another coat but had same problem. I strained varnish between coats to remove any dirt or bristles. Sorry, Jim (Janis was name on credit card)

                Smooth and even for final coat painting & varnishing. Also good brush to use for roll & tip application, but unfortunately need to be discarded after use with 2-part epoxy paint, which I didn't realize when I started. I'd have used a much cheaper brush if I had.

                      I'm building a Herreshoff/Gardner Rowboat and I bought two brushes, one for varnish and one for paint. I haven't varnished yet, but the brush has worked very well for painting. Despite my lack of experience (I've never painted anything but a wall) the brush lays a consistent amount on the work surface and has produced a good surface so far. I'm very pleased.

                            Shipped in a box of exact size as to not allow any movement and bend the hairs on my brushes. Have not used them yet. And I will only use these for that expensive varnish that only flows best when applyied by a Badger.

                                my 2" brush lost hairs left and right and seamed to "chip' while applying high quality varnish. went back to foam brushes to redo the job. very disappointed with the product.

                                  This Badger Hair brush threw very few hairs the first few uses I have on it. It does a nice job distributing varnish across surface. To avoid bubbles, brush needs to be loaded up with varnish so you are not pushing varnish out of brush...this 2 1/2" brush holds a lot of paint so I would not recommend for small jobs.
