This set introduced me into the world of brush pens and now I cannot understand
how I lived without them. Somehow, these have replaced my normal pens. Now I use
them for any writing I have to do, whether it be notes or letters. I have not yet tried the famous Pentel pen but the Pilot Pocket Pen is something
that draws oohs and ahhs out of every observer. However it is something one must
really get acquired to using. Writing kanji with this pen is a dream but writing
in English or drawing feels very unusual and is quite hard to do. Since the softer brush pens are something I still have to get adjusted to, my
favorite ended up being the Zebra pen. It flows beautifully but is still easy to
control. However the ink does tend to bleed through the paper a little. I always
use both sides of the paper so it is important to me that I do not see the text
on the other side through the paper. Because of this, the Zebra is tied with the
Tombow pen. Although it is only marginally, the Tombow pen does tend to bleed
through less, which is almost never. Between the Zebra and the Kuretake pen, I feel that the Kuretake pen is a bit
more soft and wet, but that is barely noticeable.
I have been curious about brush pens for quite some time, and this sampler pack
is a perfect way to try out a surprisingly wide variety of brush pens. My
favorite is the Kuretake, for its silky smooth writing and its hard fine point.
The Zebra is a close second--almost as silky smooth as the Kuretake. The Tombow
writes well and has a slightly thicker point than either the Kuretake or the
Zebra. The Pentel and Pilot are both soft brush pens. Those of you who are
familiar with brush calligraphy will be familiar with how they write. The
Pentel has a wider diameter than the Pilot. I found the Pentel squeaked on the
paper, which was hugely distracting. I also prefer a finer point, so the Pilot
was my preference for the soft brush. Whatever your likes/dislikes, if you want to try out brush pens out of
curiosity, for writing, or for drawing, this sampler set is an excellent place
A strong variety of brush pens, ranging from firm to soft brush. Getting this
special selection was like a box of my favorite chocolates -- which one to pick
first from this delicious selection. Great variety, and an instant invitation
Nice mixture of pens. There were only 2 pens with really brush-like tips.
Perhaps there were too many with fine hard-pointed tips. A semi-soft flexing
brush instead of the 3 fairly sharp brushes might be an idea. That said, all the
brushes perform very well.
At first I had found the Kuretake Brush Pen (Fine) harder to work with because
it felt stiff to me, but after a while and some use it became more flexible and
it became easier to work with.
The being said the pen works really well for smaller things like facial features
and detail work. But it isn’t a pen that I would use to ink an entire piece,
It is amazing for more delicate work . I probably wouldn’t use to do longer
and quicker lines.
It isn’t a favorite out of this set, and I’m not sure if I will be
purchasing another one once this one runs out. But only time will tell, I might
warm up to this pen as I use it more.
Impatience and the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen are not friends. The ink runs
smoothly on this pen, and just like any other brush you can have a wide range of
line variation. Before this pen. I had used brush pens before but nothing this
brushy (if that even makes sense), but I think it will be fun to learn.
I’ll come back to my thoughts about this pen after I learn to control it more.
The Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen was one of my favorites! Controlling this pen
was a piece of cake, and the ink flows so smoothly. I found the brush nip to be
firm but not as firm as the Kuretake or the Zebra pens but there was still some
firmness to it which I found to be just the right amount for my needs.
The only thing that I do not like about this pen in particular is that it is not
refillable, but once it runs out I will be buying myself more.I feel like this
pen is slowly going to become a favorite of mine.
I ended up liking Pilot Pocket Brush Pen (small) more than I did the pentel
brush pen and if I had to choose between the two I would definitely pick the
Pilot one.The Pilot is smaller in length than the Pentel, and it fits nicely in
my hands. The brush nip is also smaller which I found easier to control.
The sad part however is that this pen is not refillable so I have to buy a
whole new one once the ink runs out. Which I shall be doing for sure!
The Zebra Disposable Brush Pen, was another fav I didn’t like it as much as I
did the Tombow,This is another pen that I am not sure if I would line an entire
illustration with, but I would use it for finer details like facial features and
ruffles. or maybe shorter hair. Nothing that involves long and quick line work.
I think that this is a pen that would be more used for writing rather than
illustrating. I am also not sure if I would purchase another one, once the ink
runs out in this one, I might grow to love this pen, and decide that I can’t
live without it. Only time will tell.
