I received this today, and my first impression is great. It has good ink flow so far, plus the spring and dramatic responsive line variation that I love in hair brush pens---felt "brush" tips just can't compare---and for a very reasonable price. It's also waterproof; after its ink had dried for just a few minutes, a thirty-second soak in water didn't budge it at all. As for the scent, it's kind of soapy-spicy; if you sniff the brush head it's pretty sharp, but once it dries on paper it becomes quite subtle. I would definitely recommend this pen, and I look forward to trying the Kyara (Aloeswood) and Musk scents!

PS: I bought the Sutra-Writing pen at the same time, and it isn't actually any finer than this one; it's exactly the same shape and unscented. Both are finer than the hair brush end of the Kuretake #30.

I'm a newbie to brush pens, so take what I say with a grain of salt, but I love it. This was my first one with a real hair brush. The hair brush is much more fun to work with than my felt tip brush pen and you can get a really variable line.

I didn't know what borneol smelled like when I ordered it, so I was a bit worried, but the scent is a nice, clean one, and it's not too strong. I don't know if the scent is real or synthetic, but it didn't give me a headache like some synthetic scents do. I wish the fine version came in this scent.
