I saw this brush on the SOTD and got ahold of the brush maker Francisco. A few emails later I ordered the Sevilla. This is a lovely brush, one thing I am happy with is that at the moment is it only comes in a somewhat milky white (easy decision on color). The handle feels good in the hand, it's well made and attractive. As far as the knot it has slightly more backbone than the Elite knot nice full head with soft tips. 

Hey Dad, what's that shiny white hairy thing over there? Is that a relative or something? Dad! it has no fur on its shiny parts hows it going to keep warm?

Currently there are very limited brushes available by PM for the forums and Instagram users.

Moderator Note:  Link to website not affiliated with TSN removed. 


They are currently showing as out of stock as I wanted to make them available to people in forum first. You can check their specs there too.
Sevilla is a 26mm brush and currently selling it for $130 too.

I've been using the Ōku Serrano, and it's one of the best brushes I've ever used. These brushes have been created by a couple in California, who also happen to be engineers. The handle is made from next generation polymers, and rather than using traditional methods, they are shaped by using light. The handles are much more beautiful in person can be seen in photographs. The knot is extra dense and has a moderate amount of backbone, and has some of the softest tips imaginable. I'm unsure about how Francisco can offer such a luxury brush at such a reasonable price, as it easily feels and performs as well as any of my high end brushes.

Ohh! Thank you kindly Sir.

At present we are launching them at a reduced price for our earlier adopters. We will most likely be raising the price once we go fully life on our web site.

It absolutely does! And I 100% agree that Oku brush that I have (28mm Serrano Fan) is of exceptional quality. It is among my top 5 brushes.
