High quality Wooster brush
I'm a huge fan of Wooster painting tools. I love their roller cages and extension poles, and have several of their full size brushes.

I don't have the Nylon (green) version, but based on the product description, that one is intended for lower viscosity finishes, presumably like a stain or thinner paint.
The small size of this brush will definitely come in handy.
