A great felt tip "brush"...
June 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
A great felt tip "brush" marker for a bargain price! The ink is dark black, the medium tip can draw thick or thin lines, and the ink is always consistently dark. No problems with streaking or skipping. I've actually had this marker since before Xmas 2011 (or sometime around December anyway) but never used it much because I was on a "fine point" kick for the last few months :) But, even after months of inactivity (stored horizontally in my desk drawer) this little marker works just as great as the first day I got it!
I usually prefer fine point brush pens for lettering BUT the Zebra brush pen in Medium works better than the Fine or Extra Fine tips of OTHER brands. For example, Kuretake &Sailor's fine point brush pens seem too dry (squeaky when you write--eek!!) Plus I can usually get thinner lines & smaller lettering out of this Medium point Zebra than I can get from Kuretake/Sailor brush pens. Zebra offers better control over the pen's movements--perhaps because the Zebras are shorter & smaller...?
Anyway, I highly reccommend this brush pen (its inexpensive enough to just "try it out") and I will definitely be purchasing more of the medium, fine & extra fine Zebra brush pens as soon as possible!

The tip is pretty big, but you can get a decent line weight variation and it's really fun to use. It takes a bit of practice to get the hang of using it, and you have to draw lines slowly or else they won't look so great, but the ink is a really nice deep black. And the price is fantastic.

Like it, but streaks when I write at my normal pace. If you focus on writing slower there's no problem with it though. Maybe I just got a dry pen. Just ordered the zebra in "super fine" hoping they will leave a solid mark.

Very stiff, fair for writing, not so much for sketching

I have several of these, and I'm not 100% happy with the work I do with them. For as wide as the lines can be, the pen doesn't always flow quickly enough for a solid fill. I tend to reach for my Tombow Fudenosuke Soft - Black Body instead these days.

This is also a disposable pen that its tip is not as flexible as I'd like, but it is great for line work, hatching or silhouettes.... it gives you a bold crisp line that you can apply to any work.

You do have to use it at a specific angle in order to get its full potential...or else you will get a dry pen effect... still useful but not what I imagined.

All in all.... another great blind buy..... I love to try new pens as it adds to the experience of my work.... and this pen is a great addition.

This is my first brush pen.
At first I was a bit sceptical because of the stiff feel of the tip, but I've learned to appreciate it very quickly. Heavy, dynamic strokes create a nice distressed line. With a bit of getting use to you can simulate the effect of a stub nib pen, but with the added flexibility.
If I could choose again, I'd rather pick a fine tip width.
