Brush numbers

Ever wondered about brush numbering systems? Some brands use numbers or names for their brushes. New Forest have some of both. For those with numbers this is the method:

First two numbers - knot size ( diameter at base )
Third number - hair grade
Fourth and subsequent - the number for the specific brush in the category.

Grades used so far:  Two Band 0 Finest Silvertip 1 High Mountain 2 and, coming soon, Best Badger 3.

So the brush in the photo will be the New Forest 2031

All clear?
