I picked up about four...
I picked up about four of these in an art store some time ago because they were inexpensive. You really only get what you pay for with these pens as the brush starts to fray VERY quickly, even with gentle use and proper care. The tip is a felt tip instead of a real brush, which I expected since it's a disposable, but it never hurts to mention it, just in case anyone else was expecting a true brush pen. Because of that, the line width isn't as controllable as I'd prefer.

All-in-all, it's an okay pen for the price, but you can still get better disposables than this one.

i was really excited...
i was really excited when i bought this brush pen from a local art store because i liked all my other sakura pens. however, this brush pen doesn't have a nice brush tip, and after a few uses the tip begins to fray. i just cant achieve a nice line quality with it. sorry to say, but it's not really worth getting, especially if you want a brush pen for calligraphy. :(

Verified Purchase
The ink looks nice and dark, and wonderfully opaque. Plus it's waterproof. That's all this pen has going for it. I found that after about 20 minutes of moderate use, the nib's tip began to fray. Not that I could get much of a fine line beforehand, but after the fraying... forget it. I will say that it's good for making medium to broad expressive strokes, but there's not much line-width range for controlled, even strokes.

The Sakura Micron pens are great and long-lasting, the brush pen is not. JetPens has many other brush pens, both disposable and refillable, you'd be better off spending your money on, as other reviewers have said.

Freys quickly, drys out...
Freys quickly, drys out fast, too. Not as durable as sakura's other pens :( I'm sad to say I couldn't find anywhere to use this little guy. Whether it was writing or drawing: it seemed to mess it up.

I've been using the sakura...
I've been using the sakura brush pens, and while they are super cheap - they really are a disposible pen. I broke out a brand new pen for Nekocon commissions this past weekend. By the 3rd full size ink drawing, the pen had begun to fray, and by the 7th, I had to be very dilligent in my inking to make sure the fray didn't show.

The ink is still solid and black, but the pen is no longer useful for fine lines without paying super hard attention to it. I end up tossing the pens before they run out of ink due to the fraying.
