  This is a beautiful pen!..., May 15, 2009
This is a beautiful pen! The bamboo shell is warm and comfortable. The brush is surprisingly flexible and expressive (I do some inking with a Windsor Newton Series 7) for a synthetic brush. I did about two hours of inking practice with this pen and it held up and allowed me the control I needed. I used the Platinum Fountain Pen Converter with Noodler's No Feather black ink and it works like a charm. I had bought the Kuretake pen, but I have to say like this one better. The longer length lets me get looser, but the tip allows me precise control. It's not my Series 7, but it's portable and expressive enough for sketching in ink anywhere I go. Get this pen!!

Elegant. Nicely weighted/balanced. Smooth writing brush tip. Greatly surpasses the quality of other brush pens I've owned!

I have to echo the other reviewer. This pen is the most comparable to a 7-series that I've found. The ink is dense, and one smooth paper the lines don't streak and get that 'dry brush' look that the Kuretake/Pentels get.

This is definitely a good substitute for a watercolour brush, and with care I can achieve much the same results. The more I use this, the more I realise that this is definitely the best brush pen on the market. I'm back to buy some more spares!

Now if it was able to be posted and had a clip it would be perfect!
  Maybe this is a taste..., June 26, 2013
Maybe this is a taste thing, but I found this pen has a very thick and strongly tapering tip for a brush pen, which means it's only useful for fat strokes. It is absolutely terrible for detail. I didn't find it keeps the ink well throughout the stroke either, but the dry strokes are still aesthetically appealing if you want that look.
I might rate this pen higher if it were less expensive. For a $26 brush pen, it is mediocre at best.
