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.

Best pen i ever had. It's not as dry as Kuretake and it better than the super fine Zebra because it has a softer brush that allows you to draw really thin lines or thicker ones. A must have for me

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.

This pen is my go-to for inking. I love how thin of a line it can produce, allowing for a great variation in line weight. The lines also come out extremely clean, especially on the right paper. Compared to other brush pens I've used, the tip holds up very well throughout its life. The only complaint I have is that its ink capacity seems only okay at best. I go through so many of these, and always get them as gifts for my artist friends.

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.

I discovered these at Marukai, a Japanese market in San Diego. They are great, the tip has a little more play than a Kuratake, this allows for a broader range of strokes, but you have to be a little nicer to them.

This pen is my first brush pen but so far, this pen is the one pen that I constantly use and it just so fun to draw with (helps A LOT with art block, getting those creative juices flowing), I'm just hoping that the tip doesn't deform and bend because I press pretty hard and it looks so fragile. So far so good.
