What is the best Chinese ink brush set you can buy? And why?

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

Looking for high quality Chinese ink, and Chinese ink brushes for ink paintings. I have done an ink painting in years.

一得阁 is a famous ink.
the brushes usually are all good.I used a very cheap brush (less than 1 dollar) many years ago to win a silver prize in an competition.the brushes made from HuZhou (湖州) Zhejiang Province is famous.
Just buy them without choosing,a good handwriting or painting depends more on your skills.
