An excellent product for the $. The ink is nice and dark; however, it is not waterproof, so be careful if you want to watercolor over it.

The tip is molded felt, so this pen is not capable of producing the same expressive lines you get with brush pens that utilize real bristles (such as the Pentel Pocket brush pen, or the Kuretake No. 13...both of which Jetpens carries!) In addition, it is not least to my knowledge! However, if these points aren\'t a big deal for you, you are getting a very nice brush pen that will work perfectly for kanji/character writing or art.

I love the quality of line that this pen produces. Fair warning - I own three of these, and all of them leak ink. I have to thoroughly clean them every time I remove the cap. Luckily, the ink's water soluble, so no permanently black fingers!

This is a very, very good brush pen. It works amazingly well for comics and stuff such as that. If you are a big cartooning fan, then here is a suggestion on what you should do: You get free shipping on orders over 25$ So buy 1 and make sure they're what you want. If you want to stock up on them keep adding them until they're over 25$

This was my first brush pen. The regular tip seems best for writing Kanji and Chinese characters about 1-2 cm tall. I'm looking for a waterproof pen now because Kuretake ink is water soluble.

Verified Purchase
A great pen with some of the best flexibility that I've seen in a non-hair fiber tipped brush pen, going from thin to broad quickly and snapping back. The ink is a dark dark black, not dark grey. The tip also seems to be fairly robust, as I seem to remember my last pen's tip lasting through its ink reservoir, rather than blowing out halfway through (worst offenders in this category being Faber Castell's brush pens and Sakura Pigma Brush). Cons of the fudegokochi is that it is non-refillable, and it is not waterproof at all, so using it in conjunction with watercolors is a no no unless you use it after everything has fully dried.

I've been using these brush pens for YEARS; I always get them from here, and now I include several in every order, just to have backups because I use them so frequently. They've never failed to be absolutely fantastic, and I've never received a bad pen.
One thing to note is how they change with use-- there's a good amount of ink inside, so it will last you quite a while. However, after a lot of use the nib will become less and less rigid (not that it's particularly stiff normally anyway), so super tiny, thin lines will become more difficult if you don't have a steady hand, but I actually prefer the line width variation of a more used pen, anyway.
One thing I have noticed between this and the super fine brush pen of this same brand (besides that the standard doesn't leak ink lmao) is that the blacks are different colors. One is tinted blueish, the other is more brown-- I don't know whether this is normal, or if I just got a weird super fine brush pen, but unfortunately I'm unable to use these two together. I stick to this one, and use a Pilot pen or my Deleter G nibs and some bottled ink to do the really fine lines.
Overall, 10/10 on this pen. I'll continue to use this specific model of pen for YEARS to come.
