GOOD: flexible yet durable tip | long-lasting | perfect barrel size | secure cap
with slight edge to prevent rolling
BAD: NONE (worth mentioning this is water-based ink: will show overlaps but
doesn't bleed thru paper and no odor)
UGLY: NONE, unless you abhor glitter and clutter: barrel is sparkly and bears a
lot of print on side opposite of logo
This was one of my first purchases from JetPens yet the brush nib shows no wear
(no fraying at all, writes like it did
on the first day out of the bubble envelope!). Add realistic, beautiful
shadowing, and build up the shading to your
heart's content...plus feel confident that even if Kuretake offered 50 shades of
grey, you'd still pick this one (ha ha).

As others have commented, this is is a wonderful pen for sketching. The ink is a
light neutral grey, perfect for adding tones shadows to line drawings. It
doesn't bleed through the page. You can also create darker greys by layering
more strokes on the paper. The brush nib is fairly broad, but you can get thin
lines by holding the pen vertical and using a light touch.

This brush pen is fantastic! It works just like a marker, and goes on a little
opaque, allowing you to build up color a little. It's a nice, light color that
you can easily darken by going over the same area twice, which is great for
It seemed to be picking up the black ink I used on the outlines a bit, but it
wasn't very much at all and it didn't cause a ton of bleeding. I only wish there
more colors to choose from, because I would totally want a full set.

A soft, somewhat broad brush tip that's great for shading pen and ink drawings.
Easy to control, not too dark, not too light. Another nice pen from Kuretake.

Excellent product! The most useful of the colors offered by far! Very handy when
working with pen and ink. After mapping out the edges of a drawing with darker
ink, this pen can be used to add interesting contrast and shading to your
drawings. The brush tip is fairly soft and flexible, and works very well. I'll
be sure to stock up on these in my next order! Highly recommended!
