The Kalish Series 1A Spotter is custom made in Ireland to our specifications modeled after the W & N Ser. 12 (now call the Series 7 Miniature). Only the finest Kolinsky sable hair is used to make this brush that has a short, fine point. The black handles are approx. 8" in length and have nickel plated brass ferrules. Before you buy another spotter, try the Kalish Ser. 1A, we guarantee you will be pleased.
