DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
Any true lover of traditional Japanese / Chinese painting would really enjoy this new line of brush pens from Kuretake.

These quality brush pens distinguish themselves by their ink fragrance. Borneol, Kyara, and Musk are traditional scent additives into sumi-e ink sticks. The smell of ink aids the meditative process of the sumi-e painting as painters grinds the ink sticks against inkstones to make ink.

Now, modern brush pen users can get a taste of the ancient art through these scented Kuretake brush pens. The brush tip comes in medium and fine (for sutra/scripture writing) and is made of man-made hair.

I don't really want to buy this brush pen with Gray Ink, but somehow I place the wrong order and received it.
The brush is very good, sharp, and the strokes are crisp and clean, although the Gray color is more like a water down black, semi-transparent. Maybe it's good for water painting?
