New Purdy® Cub Brush™ Delivers an Excellent Painting Experience

Shorter, ergonomic handle makes it easier to create smooth, sharp lines even in tight spaces

CLEVELAND– Delivering precision and control, the Purdy® brand has added three new brushes to its Cub Brush™ line. With short, smooth alder wood handles that wick away moisture and have a comfortable ergonomic fit, the new Cub Brushes—available in 2-inch Nylox™, Clearcut® and Clearcut® Elite™—are lightweight and easy to control. The shorter handle allows painters to easily reach tight spaces when cutting in corners, painting cabinets and shelving, and doing trim work.

“Our new Cub Brushes, assembled with quality materials and handcrafted by skilled Purdy brushmakers, deliver an excellent painting experience,” said Jennie Kitchen, senior product manager, Purdy. “The brushes’ shorter handles and lightweight design make it easier for both paint professionals and DIYers to control the brush, while still delivering the optimal performance expected when using a Purdy applicator.”

Shorter handles have increased in popularity as professionals and DIYers look for paint brush options that provide better ergonomics. Purdy Cub Brushes are lightweight and easier to grip, allowing for greater control, comfort and precision in tight spaces.

Purdy Cub Brushes deliver optimal results for specific applications and types of paints or stains. The 2-inch Nylox Cub Brush is handcrafted with 100% nylon filaments for a smooth finish to any interior project, including windows, cabinets and doors. Each brush is carefully tipped and flagged to hold more paint and provide a smooth, even release.

The 2-inch Clearcut brush is formulated with a nylon/polyester blend and designed to create precise lines for cutting in. The 2-inch Clearcut Elite brush, also composed of a nylon/polyester blend, is ultra- stiff and works best with low-VOC coatings. Both brushes provide excellent cut-in ability for precision work around molding, trim, corners and ceilings.

The new additions to the Purdy Cub Brush line are now available at select traditional and online retailers. Go to to find a retailer. Learn more at and be sure to check out Instagram, Facebook and YouTube for more helpful content and how-to videos.
