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
for sure, it just doesn't agree with me. I found the brush nib too wide for
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
