Incredible! This pen...
, September 23, 2009
Incredible! This pen came with the Noodler's Emperor's Purple eyedropper 4.5oz
ink bottle, and it is one of the most incredible pens I've had the pleasure of
using. I am back to buy more so that I can add an o-ring and use them with other
Noodler's eye dropper inks! While the lines created by this pen are too broad
for most of my day-to-day uses (taking notes on college ruled paper), I still
enjoy the feel of this pen when I'm writing notes to friends, creating my "to
do" list and even making a shopping list. I firmly believe that nothing beats
the Platinum Preppy fountain pens (fine tip), Platinum Brush Pen and Platinum
highlighters and sign pens. Oh, and save money by buying Noodler's ink, adding a
rubber o-ring (jetpens has instructions online) and refilling your Platinum
pens! I now own two dozen different Platinum pens that I've retrofitted with
o-rings that I've filled with ink... no problems so far!

Eh...nothing to write...
, March 2, 2010
Eh...nothing to write home about for me. I've been spoiled by pens like the
Pentel Pocket and the Kuretake brush pens, so the felt tip doesn't do much for
me. It's definitely a better quality felt tip than Pitt or Sakura brush pens at
the same price.
For me, I'd rather save up and just buy a Pentel Pocket. However, if you are a
fan of the felt tip brush pens, this would be the one to get.
However, the pen itself is very attractive, so I can't mark it too low.

Creates nice expressive dark lines that are waterproof to boot! So it partners
well with watercoloring media. Just need to continue testing the resiliency of
the felt brush nib and the durability of each ink cartridge. Ideal tool for
cartoon sketching on the go.

I was stuck on whether to give this three or four stars.. But I decided on four
due to the fact that it's refillable, and the nib is stiff enough to allow for
The ink is nothing to get excited about, other than the fact that it is truly
waterproof. It seems like more of a dark grey than a true black. Still, you
could always refill the cartridge with another ink. Noodler's Heart of Darkness
will be my ink of choice.
The nib has a very nice range of line-widths, which is why I rather like the
stiffness in this particular brush pen. (Normally, I'd prefer a soft fiber tip.)
So I intend to use it as a liner after having put it through a barrage of test
sketches. Also, the felt tip has held up very well, much better than the Sakura
Pigma brush pen. I can see this being an everyday sort of pen, or a travel pen.

I really love that this brushpen uses cartridges, waterproof ink and that it's
not pricey at all. The design is a bit corny (gold flowers and sparkly clear
clip) but it doesn't influence the performance at all.
The only thing that's a bit of a bother is the construction: the cap is tight
and requires a good grip to take it off, but often I get the clip off instead.
Also, I regularly have to make sure it is still screwed together because through
capping and uncapping it often it becomes unscrewed.
I use it for art and in that sense, to me, it's really good for sketching.
