After a friend and I received this pen, we were initially pleased with our
purchase. However, after only several uses, the medium tip became frayed and
was no longer usable for calligraphy. Though the fine tip was wonderful and the
pen met expectations on most fronts, I would only give this pen two stars.
Though the pen is aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable to use, the fraying of
the tip shows that this might not have been the quality brush pen that my friend
and I were looking for. I would instead recommend the Tombow Dual Brush Pens
for this purchase, or the Sailor Fude Nagomi brush pen.
