Hake brushes are traditional oriental style flat brushes made of soft goat hair and usually have a flat natural wood handle. Better quality Hake brushes use stitching to hold the hair in place. Hake brushes are popular as watercolor wash brushes and for applying pastes and glues. They also make a very good soft dusting brush. Hake is commonly pronounced "Hay-Kay" or "Hockey".
