I was initially leery of getting this pen. The first review online I found for
it was very negative, and the first review here on JetPens was also negative.
However, pen junkie that I am, I have one... and I'm pleased with it! The body
is long and lean, which ought to feel awkward, but doesn't. Instead, it's
amazingly light and easy to handle. The brush is a little larger than that
found on the Kuretake #8/#13 or Pentel Pocket brush pens... almost as large as
that on the Pentel Color brush pen. I have not problem with the ink starting in
this pen (mentioned on one negative review I found), though it does flow a
little drier than the Kuretake and Pentel pens. Overall, I love this pen and it
joins my Pentel Pocket brush pen and Platinum Pocket Soft brush pen (now
discontinued, apparently) as a regular carry brush pen.
