Its large brush size make it better suited for bold artwork and writing. Unique body shape is designed for comfort and balance.
Wow. This pen is great. The bristles are durable so far, and keep a fine edge.
The ink flows very smoothly and feels wonderful to write with.
I have not had the problem of the previous reviewer, even though I've been
storing the pen upside down inside my leather coat. No leaks so far.. _^.^_ My
only wish is that it had a nice cap--I would pay $5 more for a pretty cap,
because I'm just that way.
In short: This pen is a blast to write with. Lots of fun, and great for artists
or people who just want to try out a brush pen for something new! I may buy a
few of these for presents this year.
Good responsive brush pen. Best features would be its dark waterproof ink and
easy to control flexible brush tip. Discovered a drawback when I stored it the
same way I store my Kuretake brush pen with the brush tip pointing down: ink
leaked and pooled inside the cap. Just spilled some of the ink on my black
shorts (at least the stain doesn't show) when placing the cap back on. Thus, it
probably would not travel well in airplanes and would be likely to leak during
air travel (Already tested the Pentel Pocket Brush pen and found them to perform
well during flights). In short it's a fun drawing tool, but one must take care
to store it with tip pointing up to prevent leaks.
Having tried this brush pen for drawing, I recommend that everyone else looking
for a brush pen also try it! Its white synthetic-hair nib is the same length of
that of the popular Kuretake Brush Pen, but a little broader, translating into
better ink flow and broader lines. I had found the long body and unattractive
(to me) cap in the photograph off-putting, but the pen is extremely light and
well-balanced, making it very easy to handle. The easy cartridge refill system
is very useful; this pen is a great no-mess way to ink with a brush and has
instantly become one of my favorites in my rather large collection of brush
