" Best I ever bought at the price. The Stainless steel ferrules finish the brush nicely. The bristle quality is excellant for both Gloss and Emulsion and other types of paint inbetween. "

I'm well pleased.

By deeor

" I needed good quality brushes to get a good finish on some kitchen cupboard doors and I've always found Harris brushes to be good in the past. Despite some slightly negative reviews here I went ahead with this purchase. I haven't had any black dye problems despite using them with very light coloured water based paint. Just lost a few, very few, bristles but this has to be expected. They come out of synthetic bristle brushes too. "

Good quality brushes
27 Jul 2013
By Mumuman

" These are good quality brushes, and hardly any bristle loss. Made of pure bristle. Definitely better made than no nonsense equivalent and worth the extra few £s. Bristles feel stronger than NN brushes, so they hold shape, but flexible. Stainless steel is used, so it does not rust if you leave it wrapped up well for a few days to be reused without washing it.
I bought this same brush set from another DIY chain years ago, unfortunately these new Harris ones do not have as much bristles in them as old Harris brushes, they used to be thicker in the past (I had a couple of unused brushes from the last Harris set bought over 8-9 years ago that I compared with the new set). (This is why I knocked off a star - but I would give 4.5 stars if i had the choice). Still good quality and value nevetheless and I wouldn't buy anything else.
If you use this with non-water based paint, there may be a risk of very slight colour bleed from the lovely really dark red/ brown colour of the handles. It never happened to me, as I left this soaking in white spirit overnight before using them, to get rid of any colour left in bristles. The white spirit had a slight tint of magenta after soaking this in it overnight. But I had no colour running in to the paint (I used them to paint about 5 litres of Pure Brilliant White and 6 litres of primer undercoat). "

Good Quality
15 Jul 2008
By Anonymous
, Great Yarmouth
" Good medium quality brushes ideal if you have a big painting job and aren't too bothered to clean the brushes after use. They will however loose a few bristles but not enough to ruin a quality finish when using gloss. brushes load well with paint so larger areas can be covered unlike with other brushes "

Bits of bristle everywhere

" Did not buy the cheapest even though throwing the brushes away after each use. On opening up the packaging looked as though the brushes had been used before. Never seen anything like it. Short bits of bristle everywhere. Not impressed. "

bristle loss guarantee

By bilbao

" I always buy Harris brushes, however these brushes have all lost bristles. I even tried to wash before use but still bristle loss occurred.
The shape of the bristles are very poor especially when cutting in.
I would not recommend these or buy these again.

" After using and washing the brushes only once,they were pretty unusable unless you wanted half the brush left on the wall and to try and use for cutting in was impossible as the brushes had completely lost there shape, I wouldnt recommend this set of brushes "
