Purdy brushes

Thanks to all who weighed in on Purdy brushes. Pawl or anyone that feels we let a tool out that wasn't perfect, please contact me. We'll replace anything that is not perfect. All we ask is that we get the defective tool back. We don't send out many tools that are not perfect, but when we do, we take it very seriuosly. If anyone would like info on our tools, drop me a line and I'll have some sent.

Thank you for chiming in on the Purdy paint brush debate.I have used Purdy brushed for a couple of decades(if not 3) now and they have never let me down. I take my new brushes/interior when they get older and make them exterior repaint tools.When my 4 inch brushes are no longer useful as paint brushes I will cut the handles off and make dusters out of them.Needless to say they last a good many years.

If I may make one request. 4" sash Nylox? hehehe

Thank you once again.

I'm a purdy man too. I also thought HD had de'spec brushes. But only cuz slick said it.

I use an assortment of purdys but for many years and currently, I still don't think a better brush exists than the xl pip.

My first thought on the op's post was to hand spin it to straighten out the bristles.

Second was to get a brush comb.

I'm glad SW bought purdy. The xl's are expensive and when SW bought purdy my price went down a couple more dollars.

I must say I jumped the gun.

What I was quick to blame on Purdy brushes selling seconds, turned out to be my error in cleaning them. Purdy+wire brush=no no.

I will stick to the comb, water, and hand spin.

Thank you for straightening me out and I definitely will continue using Purdy brushes for sure.

Yes, Purdy all the way. Here's another tip for easier clean ups. When using latex primers or paints, wet your brush w/ water before you start priming or painting.

I'm sure most of the pro's do this, but a good tip for you DIY'ers.
