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.

Incredible! This pen...

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!

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 brought this to fill in large black spaces in my manga drawings and it works just fine. The cartridges can be easily refilled with ink. My only complaint would be that the clip comes off too easily.

I adore felt tip brush pens. Most of them are disposable though and I gave up disposable pens a few months back. I have a few fiber brush pens, Pentel Pocket, Kuretake no. 7, and a Pentel Color Brush Pen in black.
This one is one of my favorites out of the bunch. I like the consistent ink flow, the brush has just the right amount of give. It's wonderful for beginners with brush pens. Fiber brushes can be a bit tricker if you're not used to them, but felt is usually a bit easier to grasp.
The line variation isn't spectacular, you usually find this with felt tip pens. But this definitely has the best line variation of any refillable ones I've found and tried. It's a great intro for a Pentel Pocket or a Kuretake no. 7. And it also stands really well on it's own. With some practice and a good touch you can get a nice amount of variation. If you're new to brush pens give this a go. And if you like felt tip brush pens try this one out. It may become a favorite of yours!
