I draw for a living, and I love trying new pens, so I gave this one a shot. I assume that this would probably be a good pen for writing Japanese characters, but it's far too soft to use for inking drawings. The tip is one solid mass, not bristles like a true brush pen, and when you apply pressure, the entire tip has a great amount of give. It feels almost "mushy", it's that flexible. Fun to play with, but very hard to get any real precision with it.

I love how it feels, it would be perfect if it were waterproof.

Not a bad pen for larger scale sketches or for quick sketches at a comic con or something of that nature. Nice juicy line and pretty nice control. A pleasant surprise from Pilot. A little too thick though for any intricate detail in my experiences with it.

As I continue to use this pen,...I'm learning to appreciate it more. This is really a wonderful tool that seems to be flying under the radar. A really nice and juicy line too and a Xfine line can be accomplished with a little bit of effort. (I must raise my previous grade up a notch)

Absolutely in love with the feel of this pen. Works well for playing around on paper mostly -- which is what I bought it for. The tip is flexible (keep in mind that if you're looking for an actual 'brush' tip, this one is exactly what it says, soft!) and has (like someone else said) a 'juicy' effect. It will get full with ink which I like.

While I wouldn't use this for lining or precise work, I love this pen. Will probably buy another in the future.
If you're looking for a brush pen that doesn't have the squish of this tip, go for the 'hard' option instead (I have both and I love them aha). While it doesn't have the capability to have as wide strokes as this pen, one may prefer it's easier to control tip.

I ADORE this pen. Out of the few I've bought and tried from this site so far, this has been the clear favorite. As has already been noted, it isn't waterproof, which was distressing the first time I tried to watercolor over a drawing done with this pen. Oh well, lesson learned. Seems to work fine with my copics. Lovely lines. The best non-bristle brush pen I have ever used.

This is with out a doubt the best brush pen I have found so far bar none. The felt tip is smooth and soft. It always leaves a sharp clean line and the springs back to its straight self after every stroke. If you are after a rough 'brush' look or tiny compact marks, this isn't for you. If you like the streaky marker style run off on the end of a stroke and rounded starts and run offs, this isn't the pen for you. If you want a sharp clean consistent line (with obvious weight variation), this is the best I have found on the market so far bar none.

For examples of the pen's abilities (and my art) simply view the gallery on my website: www.malicious.com.au as it is the pen that I almost exclusively use.

Please Please Please get more in and never be out of stock again! :)

This pen was an interesting pen, have never handled a felt brush tip this soft, it was fun to try the pen and also very good for doodling and filling big spaces, not for intricate details. it had Amazing ink flow and the tip stayed juicy even after exposure w/o cap for about 1- 1/2 hours all it took was a bit of a warm up, and it was working like new. i would recommend this brush pen for an artist wanting something new, but not for someone who wants a marker to be able to do small details. In conclusion i thought this was an overall good brush pen, although i lost mine, i wouldn't buy it again, however it was fun while i had it.

As a comic book artist, I do a lot of conventions, and while I'm there I often get asked to do commissions. I've struggled for a long time with trying to bring India ink and brushes to the con, because to date I hadn't been able to find a pocket pen that does well. Pentel's version of this was close, but even theirs didn't quite give me what I was looking for. This pen, however, totally took the cake. I can't think of a better way to say it than it draws like silk. The line is smooth and consistent, it can go from super fat and chunky to super-fine and light. The ink is eraser-safe and dark, it's my favorite companion. I generally use this pen for the smooth ink lines that I want and the Pentel version for any dry-brushing that I want to do. It's the perfect combo and gives me great inks, consistently every time. Awesome stuff!

The best pen brush I've ever used. Lots of variation, nice dark black, and really close to the feel of a real brush. I couldn't recommend it more.
