The Raphael Extra-Long Rigger has an extra-long hair and point, used to make the longest line possible. Extremely narrow belly makes the length of the tip the reservoir. Same superior quality Kolinsky sable and hand crafting as the 8404. Excellent for rendering long lines, delicate lettering and outlining. Lines can be painted in single long strokes without raising the hand.
Founded in Paris in 1793 and owned and operated by the Sauer family since 1859, Raphael is the oldest fine art brush maker in Europe. Following the time honored tradition of master and apprentice, the highly skilled craftswomen of Raphael must train for years before they are ready to produce a Raphael brush. The finest hairs and bristles are imported from all over the world and hand sorted to ensure the highest quality. Every brush made by Raphael is made with the artist in mind.
