Often time holidays become a marathon of calligraphy writing as elders send out postcards and letters to family and associates. The older one gets in Japan, the longer the list of friends and acquaintances that require a postcard during the holidays (many times over 100 people). For such an endeavor one requires nothing but the best writing instruments to fulfill the task, for writing beautiful kanji is appreciated by others. This Pilot pen series is designed specifically for kanji writing and is available in extra fine, fine and broad points. The oil based gel ink dries super fast and produces very dark and shiny lines.

Pen dimensions: 135 mm length x 11 mm diameter.

I bought all 3, fine, extrafine and broad. These pens are great, as others have said it is indeed "like writing on glass!" One thing is that all 3 of these pens occasionally the first pen stroke will be very light, but then it will "catch" and flow normally. My solution is to make a tiny scribble on scratch paper first. No big deal!!
As for running out of ink, obviously this broad tip will lay down a LOT more ink per pen stroke, so yeah, it will run out faster than the the fine or extra fine. But the pen writes so beautifully, and if you are just addressing envelopes with it, the pen will last.

by the way, I addressed all my Thank-You cards from Xmas with the broad pen, and the lady @ the post office complimented the nice dark ink. She thought it was still wet ink at first! It really is best for addressing envelopes because the slightly reflective, super-dark ink is easier for the robotic mail sorters to read (says the post office lady)

It writes beautifully, smooth as butter. The ink is a deep rich black - superior to any other gel ink pen I've ever tried. It looks like India ink, for anyone who has done pen and ink work. And the ink is absolutely waterproof. The pen writes rather wet, but it dries quickly. It's a terrific bargain.

For comparison - I would link these to Sharpies as a good way point to something similar available to US consumers. They are very dark and just a little bit smelly!

I love broad pens, but I found this to put down a very thick line, almost a little to thick for me! I found it to feather quite a bit as well, the smaller nibs are not as likely to do this, so I would take that into account if you are looking at this broad version.

I loved the way the ink went down on the paper though, the pen definitely feels like it glides across the paper.

It could be just me, but I find that these pens (all sizes) DO bleed through paper. If I use them as they intend, as envelope pens, I make sure I write out the envelope prior to inserting the card, bill, etc. so that I am sure that the ink will not bleed through and mark up whatever is inside.

I would rate them higher if they didn't bleed through to the other side of the page.

Perfect.

I've never before used a pen this awesome. It lays down a thicker and way darker line than the similar Ohto Fude and it literally glides across the writing surface.

OMG, I love this pen!...

OMG, I love this pen! It writes _beautifully_ on envelopes and heavier paper -- just glides across the surface like a dream. (It's not so hot on lighter paper, but that's not what it was designed for.) As soon as the broad size is back in stock, I'm ordering a couple in every size.
