DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
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.

This pen writes well...
February 12, 2013

This pen writes well and the ink is quite nice (too bad there isn't a blue ink option).

However, please be warned that you probably shouldn't buy many extras if you want to stock up and use them later.

I bought a couple dozen of these pens, in all point/tip sizes last March (2012). In the past month, I've tried using them and they've all dried out except for one of the medium/broad point pens.

It's unfortunate that the cap or the body fail to keep the pens properly sealed. I'd suggest getting replacements every couple of months and not storing them for more than a few months, at most.

FYI, I did try a few things to "re-activate" the pens after trying to write with them on various types of paper. I soaked the tips of a couple of pens in 90% rubbing/isopropyl alcohol and then in some warm water, both for a few hours, testing the pens every 15 minutes, or so. Nothing helped.

Twenty plus pens worth nothing now...

It's waterproof, dries fast, doesn't bleed through paper, and is super smooth! It does have a (slight) smell like the other reviews said. It's not completely Copic-proof, sadly ): Still a very, very nice pen.

The pens write nicely - like a Sharpie but without bleeding through the paper. Like the other review stated, there is a SLIGHT smell. I wonder if these pens are available in other colors? I would like to order in other colors if available.

The tip of pen is strong, not like the felt tip of a sharpie fine point. Has faint smell of a sharpie but not overwhelming. Pen is sturdy and I think very nice looking. Love it!

I bought three of these not knowing what I'll get myself into.

Lets just say, I'm extremely surprised at how great these pens write! Super black ink and smooth as butter. I'd definitely buy more my next order.
