Kolinsky sable-hair brush

A Kolinsky sable-hair brush (also known as red sable or sable hair brush) is a fine artists' brush.

The hair is obtained from the tail of the kolinsky (Mustela sibirica), a species of weasel rather than an actual sable. It is pale red in colour with darker tips. Those who use the kolinsky sable brush claim it has superior strength, slenderness, and resiliency when compared with other sable brushes.
