We recommend you stay with what we call 'flat' as it easily handles all types of finish materials. The size we use is around 3/16"-1/4" wide at the tip. A good sable brush will cost around the $8-$10 mark, whereas a synthetic one will cost $3-$4. With any finish brush, the key to extending the life of your brush is to take good care of it and clean it well.
