  One week later: This..., August 17, 2009
One week later: This pen is still impressing me. I thought that the tip might have gone by now, but after a week of nightly sketching it is still as new.

While it can't handle super-quick long strokes, this is still a very impressive cartooning tool. I'm a brush and ink guy, but if I had to take one tool on a desert island, this would be it. You can do controlled lines, plus brush style and even lettering (although there are better brush/sign/fude pens for this) all in the one pen. Plus, there's an ink window, which I didn't notice when it was full. Great feature.

Downsides: Sometimes the line quality is a little scratchy on fast strokes, but not bad for a pen under five bucks! Also, I really hate the colour. The blue is a little brighter than in the Jetpens photos, and is very bleh as far as I'm concerned.

Next I'm going to update how it goes refilling with fountain pen ink. I've used this technique on other pens, and have kept them going for as long as the tip holds out! Watch this space.

  this is THE best brush..., November 25, 2008
By jennrodriguez - See all my reviews
this is THE best brush pen i've ever used (and i've used a LOT). it's a dream to sketch with, has a sharp tip for REALLY fine detail, just enough give, holds it's shape, has super dense super juicy black ink. the see through well is a plus.

the only thing that would make this pen perfect is if the ink was water resistant.

  I purchased this pen..., May 26, 2011
By LizardbethArt - See all my reviews
I purchased this pen because I had fallen in love with Pilot's duel black & gray brush pen, but wasn't able to replace it once the black side ran out of ink. I was hoping this pen, being it's by the same manufacturer & labeled "hard" would be a close match. Sadly, I was disappointed. It's definitely softer than the duel pen's tip, which is why I was so excited by it in the first place. The ink is still nice and dark and copic-proof (can't say if it's waterproof though), but since I'm a little more heavy handed I need my brush pens to be a bit sturdier. I'm sure I could get used to this one with a bit of practice, but as for now I'm sadly lamenting not having my perfect pen. :(

  I love the line and modest..., February 22, 2011
I love the line and modest width variation of this pen (from somewhat thin to not-too-thick), it handles well, and it would be beautiful for medium to larger drawings--BUT for two problems. It does dry out quickly on a longer stroke, and at the wet end of the stroke the ink seeps into and spreads out on every paper I normally use. Not hugely, but too much blur for a small or fine-line drawing. My Tombow Fudenosuke brush pen (hard) needs to air out a bit before use (it always comes out of the cap wet and sloppy, then after a few seconds is great), but so far that hasn't been a fix for using the Pilot. Maybe the trick is to use this nice tip with a different ink if that's possible.
  Both of the Pilot Pocket..., July 14, 2014
By avictorim - See all my reviews
Both of the Pilot Pocket Brush Pens are steadily becoming my new favorite tool for ink work. They have the line variation of a brush with the control of a pen, and you don't have to worry about splitting like you do with fine inking brushes. I've never had an issue with ink flow, either, which has been a problem I've encountered with the Pentel brush pen.

I'd very strongly recommend both the hard and soft versions of this pen to anyone looking for a tool like this - you can get very fine lines with both if you have a careful hand, but the soft pen is much better for large areas of heavy black. The only downside I can think of is that they're not waterproof in the least, but I'm willing to work around that just for how fun they are to use.
