I ordered this along with the regular version of this pen, and i was a little upset with the quality. The ink seems to leak out of the pen, and then takes like thirty minuets to dry. I thought i could use this for lettering in my comics, but it just isn't a very good quality pen.

Of the 5 pens I ordered, the Kuretake Fudegokochi Brush Pen - Regular, Pentel Aquash Watercolor Brush Pen - Pigment Ink - Light Black, Pilot Fude-Makase Color Brush Pen - Extra Fine - Black, Pilot Pocket Brush Pen - Soft & this one, I use this and the Pilot Fude-Makase Color Brush Pen - Extra Fine - Black the least. Not because they are bad pens, but because I just haven't found a way to fit super fine and extra fine pens into my rotation yet. Also I try to draw a little thicker. With that said, I have used this pen a little, and it is a fine pen, which is why I give it 5 stars.

Great pen - I was looking for something different to write with and I had read about this on a blog. This is also my first brush pen and I have to say I love writing with this pen. This pen provides a clean line and makes my notes 'readable' - definitely worth trying.

This is my favorite multi-purpose pen/marker. Although the point does lose some of its stiffness over time, it creates nice crisp lines that are great for writing in both English and Japanese. Looks great for art projects including cards and scrapbooks. Be sure to test it on the surface before writing too much, however; like other reviewers have mentioned, it takes a while to dry and it some cases it DOESN'T dry on a given surface.

I've bought this pen twice already and now I'm coming back for my third.

This was a really great pen the first time around - tiny, firm brush tip, awesome lines, doesnt smudge with solvent markers, great. But after a few months of sparing use the little point of the felt brush broke off and there went my nice tiny lines! Soon I started noticing the pen was growing leaky (I store my pens upright) but figured this was due to the tip having broken a little and use. I had also purchased the Regular version of this pen and found that for being a little wider, the felt brush tip was flexible enough to give me comparable line variety from small to broad and was also smudge-proof.
Ordered a new one of the Super Fine and got a super leaky pen, I'm afraid :C Only used it once or twice, but even after dabbing the excess ink, it is unsuitable for doing any artwork at all.
Sticking with the Regular from now on.

I love writing with this pen but there seems to be problem with ink-leakage, my fingers are black after using it. Its easy enough to wipe off before using it but it's too much of a hassle for a pen.

I think I'm having the opposite experience with this pen. At first I thought the pen was dried out. It requires a bit of pressure to release the ink and may take a little to get used to. Once released it does produce fine lines but it doesn't flow like other pens. The tip is sturdy and good for fine details if you need a sturdier tip. I would suggest the FINE tip version of this pen because the FINE tip flows nicely and it gives you good varied line weights. This pen is okay.

I always wait for the ink to dry on the paper--so i can't speak to the time it takes to dry...
