This is an elegant brush pen. The bristles come to a long tapered point and are nicely resilient. Line thickness varies from hairlines to medium. The ink is a nice cool grey that is completely waterproof. Like the other Akashiya thin pens, the ink flow is moderate, not wet. You need a more sparing ink flow with very fine brushes, or their hairlines would quickly get too thick. When I draw on smooth surfaces like Bristol board, I can achieve beautiful calligraphic lines at comfortable pace. However, I actually use it most on cold-press watercolor paper, because I like how the ink lines become more textured and sketchy, almost like pencil. (I generally wash over the lines with watercolor, and have never had problems with the ink running.)

Verified Purchase
Terrible. Ink flow is awful. Pen is 1/2 dried out straight out of the sealed bag. Glad I only bought one.
