Create beautiful calligraphy and art with this felt tip pen! The hard felt tip is easy to handle, yet is designed to allow you to properly create the sweeps and tapers that characterize Asian writing. It's great for other writing as well as for drawing. The fine tip is nice for small writing or details in illustrations, while the medium tip is a good versatile size for writing or drawing. The water-based pigment ink is water-resistant and fade-resistant. There's even a white space on the pen where you can write your name or other info. When you put the pen down, the nubs on the cap keep the pen from rolling away. "Kakikata" means "way of writing" in Japanese.

Now since I really like...

Now since I really like using Sakura Pigma Sensei and Micron pens, I was pretty sure that I would love these Sakura Kakikata Felt Tip Pens even before I got them. They are just a tad more slender than my usual pigment pens, and the most effective way to tell the nib sizes apart is by the color coding of their pen caps. You can get some line width variation by tilting the conical bullet nib on the paper. Its pigmented black ink flows smoothly from the juicy nib, and the pen is quite suitable for quick sketching and inking tasks. I tested them during my cartoon drawing class, and found them pretty responsive and reliable. The pigment black ink did not bleed through the paper and dried waterproof pretty quickly. I used the broad nib pen for making name tents with bubble letters for each student, and none of them smeared or bled into the light color areas when they colored them with markers and water-based paints. Used a few watercolor markers to test the water resistance of the Kakikata pens on card stock. For all intents and purposes, all four pens nib sizes dried fast and were fairly waterproof. Just noticed very faint smudging with the extra broad nib strokes. The fresh ink drawings made with the Kakikata pens can be promptly colored with artist watercolors applied with a waterbrush without any noticeable smudges.
If you like drawing with black markers and plan to color them with water media, you should definitely try these drawing pens. I plan to stock up on them once I figure out how long my initial set lasts. Highly recommended.
