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.
