Unlike the previous review,...

Unlike the previous review, I find that these pens are very worthwhile. The ink
is black to me; also, it is light- and waterproof, which isn't something most
pens can boast. The wide range of sizes and the colours make this one of my
favourite pens. I find that they handle precision drawing very well.
(I advise the previous user to look at rotring instruments, i.e. rapidographs.
They are not disposable, and may just be of the right kind!)

I broke down...

I broke down and bought a handful of Sakura Pigma Micron pens in these and other
sizes. They are okay for sketching, but are not good for technical drawing or
precision artwork. The ink isn't as dark as the descriptions imply. And even
worse, they are disposable, like quality technical instruments were.
I long for the time (about 35 years ago) when I could get an beautiful, finely
made Mars body to go with it's jewel tips for wonderful drawing. (I still have
the body, infact, but can't find the tips for it.) I truly regret my lack of
foresight in stocking up on those fine instruments and getting stuck with the
cheap technical pens of today and especially these envionmentally unfriendly
Sorry, Sakura. If you want to make a true contribution to artists and renderers,
return to those thrilling days of yesteryear!
