The metal ferrule is not a problem. That's another one of those alt-photo myths that gets passed on for no good reason. Keep the ferrule out of your emulsion and keep it clean and dry and you'll have no problems. I've been using the same Magic brushes for many, many years for pt/pd printing.
Or, if you're still antsy about the ferrule, or given to splashing, coat it with varnish.
