At first I thought it was going to be a cheap pen as I got it out of its
package, because the pen was very light weight for a pen of this thickness. But,
boy was I wrong.
For starters, the cap is threaded and screws on to the pen.
I got the cartridge in the pen easily (just as easy as a Pilot Pocket Brush) and
waited for the brush to get saturated.
WOW!!! I love this pen. I inked some doodles and I inked a page for my webcomic

I really wanted to like this pen.
After reading so many raves about it, I knew I had to try one. I even waited a
couple of months to write my review, waiting patiently for the honeymoon to
begin. Alas, it just wasn't meant to be. While the Sailor Profit is a sexy pen

detailed work, and a bit unruly. Maybe I'm too used to smaller, thinner brush
pens, but the body felt stubby. There are a couple of pros, such as the lush,
rich black ink and the nice wet line it produces. I use it mostly for spotting
blacks on my comic pages, or for broad line work. For finer lines and better
control, I'll stick to my Kaimei Natural Hair brush pen, or even the Kuretake 8
