So this person on Reddit read worried about scratches on his iwata HP-CS. I was concerned myself when my brushes started brassing in the cups. Now I think of it more as character the oldest my Microns get. Anyway I posted a pic of my cups to show him how all Iwatas will brass in the cup after years of wear. OP was grateful that he was worried over nothing. But subsequent follow up posts were dissing me for having paint on my brushes. And I'm like hello do you use them, are you a painter or just a trophy collector? I use my tools, and that's all they are. Ok rant over just hate judgy collectors cause you paint with what they wish they had to put on their shelf, which is a waste of a brush.
