  Not the greatest metallic..., December 12, 2013
By ksv... - See all my reviews
Not the greatest metallic violet/purple: more like a deep lilac.

I'm not sure what the problem is with metallic purple pens, but their color is rarely intense enough. I'm guessing there's a technical issue with the materials involved in producing purple gel inks. Overall, this pen is fine, but it's nothing special. The tip is fairly broad: it wouldn't be my first choice for writing, and for most art I find the ink flow a little slow and uneven. On the whole, I'd recommend Sakura's metallic purple over this pen.
