GRAMERCY TOOLS FINISHING BRUSHES


Tools for Working Wood is pleased to announce the introduction of Gramercy Tools finishing brushes. Hand-made in New York, these exceptional brushes are perfect for shellac, varnish, lacquer and other wood finishes.

The Gramercy Tools brush is made of 100% fine European ox hair -- the best material around for finishing brushes. It will leave a virtually brush-mark free surface and will hold a generous amount of finish for a long, efficient and controlled stroke. The brush is solid hair with no gap, so you can cover carving details and moldings, and go over edges and corners with no drips or splatters. The ox hair is anchored in the brush with epoxy, so the brush won't deteriorate in solvents. The ferrule is top-quality stainless steel so you can easily clean it in any solvent, including water, and not have to worry about corrosion -- which can shorten the life of an ordinary brush and contaminate your finish. The handle is made of unfinished hardwood in an attractive, traditional beaver-tail pattern that is very comfortable in the hand and has a great balance. The brush has a hand-sculpted chisel tip for best performance. With care, our brushes will last for years and make finishing much easier and far more rewarding.

Brushes are available in three sizes: the 2" wide brush is the most generally useful, the 1" size is good for localized details, and the 3" size will make doing a large surface easier and quicker. Bristle length is 1 3/4" on all three brushes. Click here for details.

We tested a lot of materials in designing our brush. Click here to read about our testing and see a film of our brush being made.
