Purdy 140300030 3-Inch OX-O Thin Brush
I chose something a little different for my last pick. While this brush is definitely a high enough quality to be number one, Ive put it down here, because it is an unusual brush for slightly more unusual purposes. As far as I know, Purdy is the only company still producing Ox Hair brushes. These brushes are the softest bristle brush you can buy for a no-art brush. The Ox Hair bristles are ideal for applying clear and enamel finishes to furniture without leaving streaks in the finish. But be ready, these are expensive brushes. Theyre also thinner than other brushes, which helps add to the flexibility necessary for applying that very smooth coat on turned, fluted, and carved parts of the furniture.
