Prefer the Sailor super...

Prefer the Sailor super fine tip to the fine end of this pen, but the 'brush'
end produces a very nice stroke.
The ink is dark and flows very well from the larger brush, but gets a little
scratchy and develops gaps in the middle of the stroke with quick strokes.
I would prefer to get the Sailor pocket medium when it's in stock, but this is a
great alternative to that.

I'm fascinated with brush pens for some reason, so I picked this up recently. I
really like the double tips, though both are fairly soft and take some finesse
to use well. That's true with all brush pens, though, so it's not a bad thing.
The slim tip is capable of hairlines, so in one pen, you've got a very wide
range of line widths. The ink doesn't seem as dark as the Kuretake pen, or the
Sailor Kiwaguro ink in the Fude pens, but it has a nice sheen when dry that the
Water resistance seems quite good, with a tiny bit of smearing from the slim
end, but I believe that's extra ink that didn't soak into the page.
Overall, a bargain for the price, and a fun tool to carry around.
