I picked this up for...
, May 2, 2011
I picked this up for lettering work, but, except for larger lettering, I think
I'll prefer this for drawing. I usually like a more fine and precise line and a
drier pen, but pair this pen with a smooth paper (like Rhodia) and it's great
fun for fast doodles. The variation in line width from moderately fine to rather
thick gives a lot of dynamism with a light tough. After minimal drying time, it
handles erasing of underlying pencil lines well (if you don't go overboard
scrubbing at it with the eraser). I don't necessarily find this ink to be
blacker than any other similar pen. I haven't used it long enough to know how
it'll hold up in the long run, so I can't give it a 5 out of 5. But for a loose,
free style of drawing, I recommend this one a lot.

UPDATE: I just wanted to update my review. I still love these pens and use them
constantly, but I did have to warn you that sometimes the ink will bead at the
tip of the brush and will produce blobs and impercise lines. This tends to
correspond with the weather and air pressure. It doesn't happen all the time.
I still love them and continue to keep them in my bag for everyday use.

I'm still astounded on how cheap this pen is for the amazing quality line weight
and control it has. It's pressure resistance is insane, especially since I'm a
hard presser, and is absolutely variant in its line weight depending on the
user's desire. HIGHLY recommended.

I love this brush pen!...

I love this brush pen! It makes kanji practice so much fun! The tip was a bit
stiff at first (like a felt tip) but it became softer with use.

perfect for bold lines!
i bought this because someone I know uses them and they looked pretty nifty. And
at 2.50 each I was willing to try them out. They came in, and they're perfect.
I've used it for 2 months now and not a single hair of it has frayed off, like
my Sakura Lining set. The lines are staggered and vary from thin to thick,
swooping and just downright gorgeous.
The ink is perfectly black, it tones well with my black Prismacolor and
everytime i start a line, I get a beautiful, dark ink. If you are a fan of
bigger lines, this is the pen for you.
The fine isn't really as small as I had hoped (it's probably the equivalent of a
.8mm - 1mm) , but compared to the medium it's small. The only time I had it
fray, it was one single string that could be easily removed with tweezers, and
the pen was as good as new.
I've left it uncapped for hours, ran it under water by accident, drawn lines
through puddles of wet paper, swirled and stabbed it into my sketchbook and this
is the MVP of art supplies. Super super recommend to anybody who needs a liner!
I'ts still the same beautiful dark black it was when I opened and tested it.
This is my love and my life right now.
I'm probably going to start buying these in bulk and handing them out to my
friends as gifts. Whenever they come over, they use it. It sometimes goes a
little dry when you draw a really long, extended line, but that's probably
because I usually forget to cap it.
TLDR: buy this. 15/10 definitely recommend.
