The Pentel Pocket Brush is just extraordinary.
The quality of the line that is attainable with this instrument is just
It's like an old friend--without the worries about knocking over a bottle of
Higgin's India Ink.
You can work rapidly, without having to constantly dip into the bottle.
JetPens sent this out really quickly. Thanks for such a great product!

I decided to pick one of these up, after trying the other Pentel brush pens. I
really love it! The ink flows well, and you can easily get multiple line
variations. It's also a very convenient and portable size. It's also great that
the ink is waterproof.
I think like any of the nylon brush style pens, if you are not as experienced
with painting or inking, it might take a bit to get accustomed to. You won't get
the same type of control as with a felt based brush pen.
I think this is a great quality pen like the other Pentel brush pens so I would

I love this pen! It arrived less than a week after I ordered it (USA to Germany,
5 days) and I've already gotten a lot of use out of it. Much more flexible
brush-tip than i'm used to, but easy to get accustomed to, and it seems to
magically retain its sharp and very fine point. Good for thick opaque lines or
hair-thin detail. Feels good in the hand too.
I'm marrying this pen.
For a true pocket brush...
, December 3, 2008
For a true pocket brush pen, seriously - this is a wonderful product. It not
only comes with 2 cartridges (1 for use, 1 for refill), but the brush point is
truly a brush point with synthetic bristles!
I would consider the point "fine", but depending on how heavy (or light) a hand
you use when inking/drawing, the line quality varies a lot. The point stays
sharp so all stroke starts are clean and pointed.
The ink is pigment-based and waterproof, but I find it a little lighter/thinner
other ink pens.
I wouldn't necessarily recommend this particular pen to someone just getting
started with inks and brushes with hopes of drawing. To get the type of line
you'd like would probably take a some practice and patience. For
Japanese/Chinese calligraphy, this would be an excellent pen for penmanship
practice as the point has a nice flexibility and drag when practicing
As for water-proofing, this one holds up the best when dried and washed over
with a wet brush. There is very little smearing, if any - and little
deterioration of color.

I have tried -- and fallen in love with -- many different brush pens, but I
really could have stopped with the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen. The nice,
lightweight plastic body is sturdy and well-balanced. The synthetic hair nib is
longer and more flexible than non-Pentel brush nibs I have tried, which first
meant less control but -- with practice -- means more range and variation. If
you are not the collector that I am and you want only one drawing brush pen,
then go with this one.
The black Pentel Brush...
, August 16, 2008
The black Pentel Brush Pen had been my favorite tool for brush sketching on the
go until I found this item! Because it looks and feels just like any other pen,
this pocket brush pen is perfect for keeping in bags, travel artist satchels,
and even your pocket. Even though it has a smaller nylon bristle tip than it's
bulkier big brother, this pen delivers everything the Pentel Brush Pen could do,
and because the ink cartridge is located safely inside the barrel of the pen,
there is no danger of accidentally squeezing and spilling ink. Definitely a good
buy for a great price.

After having owned the Sakura brush pen and Faber-Castell Pitt artist penn for
several years, I can easily say that the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen is far superior
to both. A felt tip brush pen just doesn't compare to the level of control and
detail thats possible with this pen. This pen is flexible because actual
bristles, unlike felt, can effortlessly vary from a literal hairline to the
broadest stroke. Its in a league of its own really. The pitt pen is worthwhile,
although less versatile. It is certainly an adequate trainer pen, if you need
something to practice your technique. The sakura pen was somewhat crude in
comparison to both. This pen, if it can be found, and if you can use it, is
surely worth the price.
