Really great pen! It does as well as the Uni-Ball Signo Broad in white but good
for spot work and half the cost.
This pen works twice as well as Pentel Sunburst Gel in white and Pentel Hybrid
Gel pens but again, not nearly as costly. I've two and am glad of the

I have to respectfully disagree with lizardbethart and say that I like this pen
better than the uni-signo. It does not have a thin less opaque line as one
review on this site indicates. I love this pen and every product that Sakura
puts out. They are an exceptional brand.

This used to be my go-to white pen of choice (before I discovered Uni-Ball's
white pens). It has a nice consistent line and on plain paper it works very
well; for most people who will only be using it to write on dark paper, they're
However, for what I use white pens for (drawing highlights overtop of marker
colored drawings), often it would soak up the pigment from the marker underneath
and turn a light shade of that color, rather than a flat white. If that's a look
that you want (a lightly colored mark to match the color under it, instead of
just flat bold white), than these work very well. However, if you want your
white pen to be WHITE, no matter what, I'd try a different pen.

I've purchased two of these pens and found that in general, this is a good pen
for basic work. For details it's not too good. The lines are inconsistant and it
gets thin in places. Also, if you don't use it for a while it tends to dry out a
bit and you have to work the dried part out before it will work properly.
I did not purchase this through JetPens, but from my local art store, so they
could have just picked up a bad batch.

The ink isn't really all that opaque. It's more a pen for sheen and texture,
rather than for color.
It's got a shiny finish, but doesn't show up very well on dark paper.
