"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."

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"

bristle loss guarantee
3 Apr 2014
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.

disaster

By Beasag

"as previous reviewers, a black dye runs into the paint, initially I thought that light and shadows was affecting the finish (dulux white satinwood) or it was my eyesight ???? - but the next day, what a mess - now have to re-do the whole house."

"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"

Fine if you like black marks!
17 Nov 2008
By will77t
, Leicester
"Bought these brushes, gave them a good wash then spent a whole day cutting in around the house with cream/white paint. At the end of the day I stood back and looked at the walls. Every place I'd cut in had black marks from the dye in the brushes. Gave the brushes another good wash and tried again... still the same. Don't bother buying these brushes unless you plan to exclusively use dark paint. Terrible!!"
