To answer the question posed in my earlier post "To Hakuhodo or Not to Hakuhodo, That is the Question." My answer is To Hakuhodo!! So I ordered a few brushes, and am so happy that I did! A very special thank you to Den, who made numerous fantastic comments on my first posting that inspired me to place an order. These are the most amazing brushes that I have ever used, and I will be doing a review of each of them. In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures of the brushes that I purchased. I will give all of the details about each of the brushes in my upcoming reviews.
