Great brush pen! Been using it for a few months, ink is very dark and the tip is nice and thin. However, it's not as large as I would like. I've looked all over for a refillable felt-tip brush pen, and this one is the best ive found so far

For me this just didn't deliver on line variation. I also find that on any of the paper I use it kinda feathers. I've used lots of different papers. The only one that seems to keep it from feathering is cold press watercolor paper.

I do illustration, mostly with marker. I have the Kuretake No. 8 which performs beautifully. I really prefer felt tipped brush pens and fude pens over hair brush pens though, so this seemed like it would do the job. I find that I'm liking my Pilot Petit 3 more!! Which cheaper and quite portable.
The nice thing about this though is that the ink flow is spectacular. I use the akashiya bamboo body brush pen refills (they look almost the exact same as the Kuretake refills) and the ink is a nice rich black. It stands up really well to my black pigment inks I buy, which is great for a refillable pen.
The body length is pretty substantial as well. It's a long pen, even more so if you post the cap like I do. This may bother some but it's fine by me.
Overall it's a pretty solid pen. Give it a go if you want consistency in your lines. It's a no fuss pen in that department.

I still only give 4 stars, but that is only due to the lack of much line variation. Other than that, this is a very good illustration/drawing pen!
As a matter of fact, I plan to add this pen to my "keepers". If you realize that you will not get much in the way of line variation, you will be OK.
This pen gives a dark line, very easy to control, and unless you go too fast, the line will not fade much. This pen is a great illustration pen. Just be careful that you do not rub the line too soon after you draw or it may smear a little. I highly recommend this pen unless you absolutely must have a lot of line variation out of one pen.

A fun pen to draw with, but I can't get much line variation. You can draw fairly fast with this (not too fast), and not get a streaky line. However, I see this more as a cartoonist's pen than an illustrator's pen. If you like to do cartoons, give this a try. If you do more serious illustration and need line variation, I would look elsewhere. I nice pen though with good dark ink...
