I bought this product...
June 23, 2012
I bought this product from a local Michael's.

Now onto specifics/quality: The pen itself comes empty with dry bristles under the cap. One of the refills it comes with must be firmly inserted into the tip unit. Then you are left with only one refill:(....so buy some more here online!

The quality of the pen is amazing! The ink flows nice and smooth, but only when you move slowly. The reason I only give this 4 out of 5 stars, is because when you move fastly with the pen, it has a bit of a dry-brush effect...the marks will not be clear, so move slowly! Overall, great brush pen - buy it;)

WARNING: Ink is permanent and will change its performance depending on the pressure or the temperature of the air!

I love this pen. It has similar brush tip as the Pentel standard brush pen (http://www.jetpens.com/index.php/cPath/221_517) , so if you like the standard one, you will love this one, too.
I think it is using a thicker ink, the ink in Pentel standard is too thin to me, even though it's still very black.

I first bought this pen...
October 24, 2013
I first bought this pen a few years back out of curiosity, after being recommended it by a friend. My pen of choice is usually a Steadtler refillable technical pen (0.05), I have also used Tombow brush and Faber Castell Pitt pens but I don’t like that they are disposable and they don’t have a huge amount of line variation or give in the brush end.

I have recently revisted the Pentel's GFKP brush pen. It has a flexible brush tip and can be refilled with specially made ink cartridges which are relatively cheap and seem to last for ages. The pen gives a nice lush line with an easy variability. The ink is dark and waterproof and can handle watercolour and ink washes over the top. On some types of paper the ink can take slightly longer to dry when heavily applied, but I have found this to be more about the paper than the ink used in the GFKP. The pen is a great way to start practicing inking with a brush before buying an expensive sable brush. You will probably end up liking it so much you will not want to even pick up a sable brush at all.

If you have used the Pentel Aquash before, the GFKP pen is a lot more controlled and better for finer more accurate inking. I still like the Pentel Aquash, but I find them better for ink washes rather than detailed inking like the GFKP.

I have not done any drawing for many years, pencil and ink being my favorites. I recently started to get new supplies and was not aware of these kind of refillable pen brushes. This one in particular I recently ordered and is so much easier than dipping brushes into ink bottles and not worrying about having any ink drip by accident onto the paper. Thin or thick lines, this works great. And I can control it better than a brush. Also faster than using a Rapidograph, which I still use, for inking a larger area.

This pen is pretty amazing...you can make such a wonderfully wide range of line widths and the ink is a nice deep rich black. I use this pen every day.
