What are filbert brushes and how are they used?

Filberts are round brushes that are put into a flat ferrule. Sometimes these are easier to use than the rounds. For instance, they make it easier to start off the comma strokes because the hairs are already spread out. As you pull away from the surface to finish your stroke, you can slightly turn this type brush to the side to make a tiny tail to your comma stroke.
