    I hang the brush by a closepin on the film drying line above the sink.

    Same here... hanging to drip dry is fine. You normally never get the entire brush wet anyway, so the ferrule should stay dry and not rust. Unless you're an idiot and forget the brush in the distilled water soak for three days. Then the brush soaks up a lot of water, the ferrule rusts, the wood handle swells and the lacquer finish cracks off. And you're out another $40 or so for a replacement brush.

    Call me a neophyte at brush coating (puddle pusher myself), but what is so special about this particular kind of brush? I used to paint and there are many like this. Can someone enlighten me?

    There's something about the bristles - they're smoother and finer, and it just does a better job of providing a smooth, even coat. It also absorbs less solution, so you can use a lower drop count for coating.

    It's the way the brush behaves with regard to paper surface abrasion and coating materials absorption.

    Reportedly there are similar brushes from other sources, but they really don't behave the same way. The Richeson brush is quite magical, for what it is.
