Hair:  This well selected weasel hair is good at making sharp lines. The hair is smooth and flexible. Therefore, weasel hair brush is widely used for both calligraphy and painting.

Special Note: Size M brush is suitable for class regular script calligraphy. It is a proper size to practice classic calligraphy of Yan ZhenQing 颜真卿, Liu GongQuan 柳公权, Ou YangXun 欧阳询, Zhao MengFu 赵孟頫.

This is also a proper brush size for beginners to practice calligraphy on a 9 * 9 cm size calligraphy square.


红星 [Hong Xing] or in English “Red Star” is China’s premium brand from China Hong Xing Xuan Paper Group and uses only the finest grade materials and strict quality control process. This is reflected in the price and quality of their products.


“Wolf” brushes use hair from the Chinese “Yellow mouse wolf” 黄鼠狼 – a type of weasel.  Premium Dong Lang Hao “Winter Wolf” brushes use the extra thick hairs produced in the winter in the cold and snowy  North East China. The best weasel hair is fine and glistening, smooth and elastic and suitable for both large and small brushes.

Weasel hair is not as quite stiff as rabbit hair but stiffer than wool and combination brushes, so it is preferred for detail work and regular script calligraphy (楷书 Kaishu). Weasel hair has lower absorption rate than wool and the hair is strong & flexible. Therefore, it performs very well on painting dry and ‘bone’ effects and for example for painting tree trunks with dry ink such as su ink.  Wolf brushes are easier to control than Wool brushes and so are also recommended for beginners.

Recent discussions in: 狼毫 Lang Hao Wolf brush (Weasel hair)

  • The Red Star 点梅 “Prune Dot” Lang Hao “Wolf” Brush is definitely good for detail. In regards of the other reviews, I wonder about the size script they are referring to. For me, when using a typically sized practice square (like the one from the best company in the world, Inkston, of course) this brush is on the small side. For beginners, you may wish to try Inkston’s $8 dollar brush, INKSTON Red Star 狼羊兼毫 (三)Jian Hao “Wolf-Wool” Combination Brush #3.

  • Inkston 0601Ws 经典狼毫大 Large Classic Lang Hao Wolf Brush
    Très souple et fluide sur le papier. J attends de recevoir dans la même game le plus fin le 0603.

  • Une pointe très fine avec un ventre bien rebondi il stocke bcp d encre

  • I recommend this brush for beginners, because it’s weasel hair its more stiff and you have more control. I use it during my classes and all of my students are satisfied with it. If you are more experienced this is also a very nice brush to have. It’s a good price as well and great quality!

  • este es una joya de pack

  • este es el paquete top que tienes que elegir si o si

  • este pincel es el mas versatil para mi que eh encontrado y de calidad top

  • The Inkston 0602Ws 经典狼毫中 Medium Classic Lang Hao Wolf Brush, is a very good and versatile brush. I love using it to paint goldfish, and it should also work well for making bamboo leaves. The tip is thin enough to make details, but that does require practice, if you are new to painting it might be good to also get a smaller brush for the details, the Inkston 0903Ws 花枝俏 “Flower Brush” Extra Fine Detail LangHao Wolf brush is also perfect for this. And if you want to make even more details the Red Star 紫露 (红) Lux Zi Hao Rabbit Brush (Red) is also very good.

  • Together with the Inkston 0903Ws 花枝俏 “Flower Brush” Extra Fine Detail LangHao Wolf brush and Inkston 0901WsWl 古法大白云 GuFa Da BaiYun “Traditional White Cloud Large” 兼毫 Jian Hao Combination Brush, this makes an ideal beginner set! This prune dot brush allows for more control than the combination brush and keeps its shape very well when painting. This makes it very good for some detail painting (small details possible, but might be difficult for beginners, for beginners who want to make smaller details such as the flower stem , whiskers, fur, eyes etc, I recommend the flower brush mentioned above)

  • Very good and easy to handle brush. I use it for a lot of detail work such as eyes, stems of flowers, and insect painting. It also works well to paint small patches of fur.

  • Great brush, for painting or calligraphy, works very well.

  • Beautiful and sturdy brushes that were beautifully and carefully packed. Thank you!

  • Belle qualité de pinceau. Bravo pour votre professionnalisme dans la communication et suivi de commandes.

  • Product was top quality. Shipped from China to Seattle in less than 2 weeks. Seller provided shipping info.

  • I am quiet disappointed with this brush. I bought it expecting high quality, but since using it it has been shedding hairs from its center, and every time I use it it continues to shed 3 or 4 more hairs.

  • I’m new to Chinese brush painting, and this is a great set to start with. The brushes are well made, and continue to keep their points. My only recommendation to other new painters, is to also buy a purely goat hair brush- which is something I ended up ordering later.

  • Belli
    Ho intenzione di utilizzarli per l’arte giapponese (Suminagashi marbled paper)
    Le tradizioni sono importanti per non dimenticare da dove veniamo e dove stiamo andando.
    Grazie Inkston

  • Beautifully made and great quality, I bought my first Inkston brush months ago and I haven’t bought any brushes from anywhere else. Easily my favorite art supplies.

  • Great seller. Careful packaging and fast delivery. Thanks so much.

  • Encantada con este pincel que te permite hacer lineas muy finas. Es un pincel de alta calidad. He comprado varios productos de Inkston y me queda claro que es una empresa que ofrece productos muy buenos y a un precio razonable. Los recomiendo.

  • Encantada con este pincel que te permite hacer lineas muy finas. No tira pelo. No se deforma la punta. He comprado varios productos de Inkston y me queda claro que es una empresa que ofrece productos de alta calidad. Los recomiendo.

  • Soy principiante en la técnica oriental y este pincel me ha venido muy bien, me encanta porque absorbe justo la cantidad de agua que yo necesito para mis pinceladas. También me gusta que a pesar de que lo uso tanto no se deforma ni tira pelo. Alta calidad. Lo recomiendo.

  • Muy buen pincel. Alta calidad. Lo uso frecuentemente y no se deforma. lo recomiendo.

  • These brushes are the perfect fit to the brush hanger beautifully made and packaged worth the wail well pleased

  • Beautiful, high quality brush set – love it. Awesome customer service as well; very friendly and extremely quick in replying questions. I wouldn’t hesitate ordering at Inkston again!

  • Bonjour, j’aime bien ce pinceau pour la calligraphie japonaise.
    C’était mon premier achat chez Inkston et je trouve important de souligner le professionnalisme du personnel du service à la clientèle de Inkston à Shanghai. À la réception de ma commande, j’ai réalisé que le manche du pinceau était brisé. J’ai immédiatement envoyé un courriel, avec une photo, au service à la clientèle à Shanghai. Le lendemain matin, j’ai reçu un courriel m’offrant de remplacer le pinceau ou de me rembourser. J’ai demandé qu’on me renvoie un nouveau pinceau. J’ai donc reçu,12 jours après, un nouveau pinceau avec un cadeau pour le désagrément. Enfin, j’ai trouvé que les deux personnes du services à clientèle,que j’ai contacté, étaient très courtoises et qu’ il était très facile de trouver un arrangement.
    Bon matériel et service impeccable.

  • parfait! je l’utilise pour l’enluminure

  • Love this brush! does great with fine detail and keeps a nice point.

  • This brush is amazing! it keeps a constant sharp point which produces very fine and clean lines.

  • The brushes were absolutely amazing. I was really impressed with the fine line brushes and the packaging for them with their own individual cases. The lines formed with those brushes are very nice and I’m excited to use them in my next piece!

  • Un pincel muy versátil. Los he comprado para mis alumnos de arte oriental y los comentarios han sido muy buenos.

  • This brush is a stiff type. It holds the point extremely well to create strong, sharp lines. For the gong bi style, this brush is good for long lines, leaf veins, flower branches, and so on. I enjoy using this for details and when I want to create lines with a “dry bone” effect. Think plum blossom branches (Google is your friend). It has been perfect for the above uses so far.

  • I use this brush almost every day. It’s possible to create strokes thinner then a human hair. The brush-hair is firm enough to make confident strokes (I am not an advanced user) After three months of usage still no signs of wear and tear. It’s a valuable tool.

  • great brush for small detail, and good quality.

  • Maravilloso el pincel y fabulosa la presentación. Feliz con la compra, por el trato y la calidad del producto recibido.

  • Très bon pinceau
    Je ne suis pas déçue de mon achat car il correspond à mes attentes concernant sa finesse
    J aime dessiner des fleurs avec. Très souple pour dessiner les pétales la réserve d eau est très bonne

  • Good for small calligraphy
    This classic calligraphy brush is useful when writing small characters.

  • Verified Purchase
    … both paper and brushes from Inkston and have been pleased each time

    I have ordered several items both paper and brushes from Inkston and have been pleased each time. The price, the quality, and the service have always been excellent. I have used the brush for fine and detailed work. I can think of no downside to the brush. It did come with a white silk sleeve that I would not recommend for brush storage but I may find some other use for it. This a fine brush.

  • Muy buena calidad
    Muy contento. Lo utilizo para acuarela. Llevo varios meses usándolo y funciona perfectamente.
    Muy recomendable por su punta, muy fina y al mismo tiempo puede funcionar como pincel plano.

  • Excellent brush for Chinese brush painting
    I have been using this brush for several days. It holds a fine point when painting with ground Chinese ink. I am very pleased with the quality.

  • Fabulous Brush
    I received my brush yesterday. I was very surprised at the wonderful quality of this brush. It is fabulous. I can’t wait to actually do a full painting with it. I tried it out and it dances on the paper! So excited. Inkston company also has my highest recommendation. They are a very classy company with top quality products. Every care is taken with your purchase. My brush came in a cloth holder and also had a sample of Xuan (rice) paper in a beautiful folded gold packet. Very special touch. This is a great brush!

  • Toller Pinsel, tolle Extras
    Pinsel war ohnehin super – wie gewohnt – und gab dazu noch schöne Extras wie Papier, Postkarten und eine hübsche Tasche für den Pinsel

  • D’excellente qualité et présentation ce pinceau est un régal pour le travail à l encre comme à l aquarelle
    Le travail peut être fin comme plus large
