Peewee 800 Long Liner (800)
Don’t let the name of this brush fool you!
This is a very capable and useful brush made for long lines and a superb brush for design work, and an excellent choice for outlining flames, graphics, etc.
After 17 years of using Cosmos then DaVinci 700 long liners for all of my line work I noticed the dreaded “hair falling out syndrome” then the shape consistently changing as the selling price of these brushes continued to rise. All the while always having to grab my trusty Mack blue wrap (series 10) for my design work or any time I had flames or graphics with lots of turns. I’d finally had enough. So teaming up with Mack Brush Company to develop a brush that combined the best of both worlds the Peewee 800 LongLiner was born!
This wasn’t a one time “hey make a brush like this guys” type of thing. It took many tries and quite a few design changes to ensure the “butterknife” or “sword” shape was just right, not to mention the hair count was refined to maximize the paint carrying abilities for those long lines this brush was intended for.
In a nutshell, this is a highly refined Mack Series 10 built with a purpose, and with being a Mack rest assured it will be a workhorse that won’t let you down!

Kazan Squirrel - Bronze Handle"Just a hair' faster than the Vortex, but with all the quality, this baby moves right along. As fast as you can think of a design, the typhoon seems to read your mind and anticipate you next move. The hair was chosen for quick response time and accurate placement on any surface. I especially like this brush for motorcycle work because of the curved surfaces and the brushes 'forgiveness' in tight turns. I am amazed at its performance every time I use it." - Steve Chaszeyka Available in 3 sizes. Steve is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #9
The Trickster is a striper with a handle length of 4-1/4". Jim Norris helped design this brush and with his sign painting background likes the longer length of a brush handle. For the stripers that prefer a shorter handle the modification is quick and easy. The striper is made of pure blue squirrel hair and has a length out of 2-1/4". The long length of the hair allows the brush to carry a good load of paint for a long distance. You can stand the brush up on the tip to create super fine lines even with the larger sizes. Available in sizes 00, 0 & 1
- This brush was manufactured with the beginner in mind and has the quality for the seasoned vets.
- The brush is made with the classic dowel handle and the hair that is used is European dressed blue squirrel hair.
"Once upon a time in Michigan, Texas, and California, lived a lazy pinstriper. He wanted to make a lot of money fast. This pinstriper was busy with dealer lots, asphalt, dirt, and gravel. He pinstriped 20-30 cars per day in sun, rain, and wind. He started with a Grumbacher 1010, but when the wind blew, the little brush was taken by the wind. He wanted a brush the wind would not bother. He called Grumbacher and they made him a brush with taklon bristles. All was well, but the lazy pinstriper was still not happy. He now wanted to pull longer lines. He called Grumbacher again, but they sent him too short of a brush. He was told they had been conquered by the evil Kohinoors. The lazy pinstriper contacted the Maine Brush Company, but the Maine Brush Company was also conquered. The search continued for the magic bristle, leading the lazy pinstriper to the Andrew Mack & Son's Brush Company. Other brush makers suggested a blend of natural and synthetic bristles. The blend was highly sought after, a rare commodity, and soon to be extinct. He called Chris at Andrew Mack & Son Brush Company and cried, "Woe is me! These other nitwits forgot the formula and can't find the hair (or their ferrules either). The mighty Chris said, “Have no fear, I have an idea!” There is a new taklon and we can do it! After much trial, the Longstriper 1111 was created, the homage to the Grumbacher 1010 as per Spinal Tap where their amps went to 11. If you do commercial work, you are going to love these. This is the best straight line brush I have ever used. Moisture has no effect on this brush and the wind's 20mph is no match for this brush." -Michael Menard Available in sizes 00, 0, & 1 (#1111)
