This pen is nice, but...
This pen is nice, but it is not waterproof. It feels like the opposite - a watercolor brush. Even a week after drawing, the ink washes away with water with absolute ease. For this reason it works well for laying down the base of a watercolor sketch.
Also, to be clear, the color is much as shown - it's very grey, not blue at all.
I took off one star because I don't find the color to be particularly gorgeous - some greys are just lovely, this one's a bit ho hum. But it's a decent watercolor brush.

I love the thinner body...
I love the thinner body of this pen, as it is a lot like using a paint brush. I think the Akashiya Pens require a lighter hand to get the very fine lines, and this might take a bit of practice for some.
