The brush I got didn't have a painted handle, but it worked well. This item is a necessity, if you are using the double-sided butyl tape. The brush has served me will with multiple jobs; the bristles are the right size/stiffness to get the loose cement/dust off concrete block. Tip: i zip-tied a carabiner through the hole in the handle for easy access. It's worth the money, though it feel like it could be a couple of bucks cheaper.
