, 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.

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.

Good pen and acceptable thickness of the lines, but I prefer the Kuretake

I LOVE this pen. It was my first brush pen but it's gotten me hooked. I'm
ordering more, in fact!
The tip is nice and flexible but easy to control, though I'm worried it'll give
out quickly, especially if you push too hard. Either way, it's great for the
price, the ink doesn't seem to smudge or bleed through and it gives some really
great outlines when inking pictures. Even the fine tip makes filling in larger
areas nice and fast while still being precise.

As a "grunt tool" brushpen for cartooning, this is a great one. I recently
started using brush pens for inking my comics, and the Zebra's been a
surprisingly helpful brush.
