Bought this pen to practice...
May 3, 2012
Bought this pen to practice chinese calligraphy, and I'm pretty disappointed. The pen writes very wet, causing the ink to feather and bleed on cheaper paper, or take a small eternity to dry on higher quality paper. The brush part is made of synthetic fiber and holds its shape surprisingly while still giving lots of nice variation. Unfortunately, it's also super thin and really really hard to control. I'll probably end up buying on the normal fine/extra fine refills next time.

I like the diverse ranges of stroke you can get with it, but the ink can spill a bit into the pen body so you have to be mindful of that.

I didn't have any feathering or drying issues, but I used actual drawing paper, so perhaps that's the difference. The synthetic bristles hold their shape well, but I will agree that the length and thinness of the bristles does make it harder to control for fine details or writing. It's perfect for making expressive, broad strokes, and some thinner quick strokes. I would suggest this more as an art pen than a calligraphy pen.

The ink itself is a nice, dark black with some transparency, and pairs well with a waterbrush or watercolors.

This is great, but it went dry too fast! I need to buy a gaggle of them at once, I guess.

As a newbie at brush lettering I feel like a kindergartener with this, but even considering that it's so fun to play with. You have to go a little slow or you run out of ink, but that's not too much of a problem.
