I just received this today in the mail, tested it out, and it's a wonderful waterbrush. I feel like the reviewer below gave this wonderful brush a bad rep for using it the wrong way. This isn't a brush pen. The brush is not meant to hold anything other than water. Sure, you can try to place ink into it, but of course it won't work as well since it was not made for that purpose.

I use this as a watercolor brush, and it works extremely well. The bristles hold water nicely, and giving the barrel a little squeeze lets out a drop of water onto the bristles to rewet the brush. The brush blends paints together well, and as of yet, I haven't had any staining on the bristles, though I suspect it maybe happen through continuous use. Though this will never replace my traditional watercolor brushes, it's nice to be able to carry this around when I'm traveling or on the go.

This is quite a nice waterbrush. I originally got it because of its two-part design -- it's really convenient and fits into my travel paint boxes. The brush itself is well made and comfortable, and can produce a variety of strokes. The only drawback is the small water capacity -- depending on how wet you work your paints, you might run out before the end of a piece. But I always carry extra water when sketching outdoors, so this hasn't been an issue.

Wonderful brush
I found these at Hobby...
June 29, 2010
I found these at Hobby Lobby, and being a lover of brush pens, snapped up a couple of different sizes. I loaded them with fountain pen ink for use as brush pens, but unfortunately, I found them far inferior to the Niji/Kuretake water brushes, or to the Pentel Pocket brush pen if a brush pen is what you want. The bristles originally had a sort of oily texture, and they just didn't have the proper snap and spring; when pressure against the paper bent the bristles, they would tend to hold the bend and not spring back gracefully, so the tip would drag around rather than floating in and out like a better-quality brush. It's hard to describe, but was very noticeable. The cap does fit well, and the compact size would be good for portability, but again, for a waterbrush, I recommend Kuretake instead.
