I use this to outline my sketches and it really makes them pop! It is very easy to use and a smooth tool to use when outlining things you've drawn or sketched. I don't use it for writing text like it was intended, but it is one of the best outliners I have found for the price.

This tip is softer than the xtra-fine, and shows good variation for small written Chinese calligraphy. It's also perfect for putting pine needles on pine trees with my ink paintings. Wide enough to show the right kinds of variation for the needles, but thin enough to keep every needle sharp. I can watercolor right over it and there's no smearing or bleed thru. It's perfect for what I'd hoped to use it for.

I suspect this will also be quite good for the thicker outline lines for manga-style drawing as well.

I find the ink thin (grey), and the stroke scratchy and prone to gap during quick lines. I ordered two different Kuretake brush pens (this and the extra fine) this order and both made similar strokes

Not likely to try this pen or the brand again as a result.

three stars not because it is a bad pen but because my lettering skills aren't there to really show the line differential that this pen possesses. Would not recommend as a starter pen.

This produces a nice variable line. I'm still learning the nuance of speed to get proper ink flow. The diameter of the barrel is larger than the Zebra or Tombow.

Very nice pen for inking art and it gives you thin to thick line quality when you need it. Tip of pen is very well made and holds up to the name "KURETAKE." Takes to Bristol and other heavier weight paper extremely well. My go to pen for fine tuning and giving my art that extra detail.

These are moderately smooth and very good ink flow. Love how these create both thick and thin lines when needed. However on comparison with Kuretake Fudegokochi Brush pens these don’t have smoothness and richness in pigment.
