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.

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.

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)

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 is good for inking large areas! my last brush pen ran out, but this one works even better. It leaves a heavy, full line- but it's not for detail work. I would recommend this more for inking large pieces.

If you know what you're doing this pen can become your best friend! I am a tattoo artist so I draw every single day and love every minute! This pen is delightful and my favorite brush pen I have ever bought! So much pigment and such smooth lines I have never met a pen I love so much! I am a tough sell but this pen was kissed by the angels themselves and delivered to earth.

this pen was very, very fluid and gorgeous. lines were lush and black, perfect size variation and it could go from super thick to hair thin all in the movment of the hand. I fell in love with it. as a traditional artist who uses markers, however, i clashed with this pen often. the ink would never dry, and i'd have to leave the ink to sit alone for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to make sure that when I erased the pencil underneath, it wouldn't smudge and ruin everything. It also ruined marker tips, and I had to leave the inked pieces alone overnight before colouring them otherwise my marker tips would be black adn the ink would bleed. and don't start me with watercolours. its a beautiful pen, but there was so much difficulty and i'm sure you can get the same gorgeous lines and wonderul abilities from somewere else.
good luck
