What makes the Zebras...
, November 3, 2011
What makes the Zebras a step above my previous favorite Uniball brush pen is the
mere fact that they are re-usable!
All I did to mine was remove the back cover, tap out the sponge reservoir and
drop some PERMANENT ink into the sponge with a dropper (took just about 5 drops
to really saturate it) and the pen was back in action with the added bonus of

This pen has successfully replaced my whole set of sakura microns at a fraction
of the cost! No longer do I have to switch between pens to get line variation,
rather, with a simple flick of my arm I can get a beautiful tapered line! I have
also noticed no bleeding which combined with the fact that it appears to be
completely waterproof, makes this pen a keeper!
Unfortunately my review isn't all praises. After a bit of use I found that the
tip has worn down quite a bit, but that is to be expected of a disposable pen.
The pen also isn't the best to sketch with due to the fact that the ink doesn't
seem to flow fast enough for me. This also means that it probably isn't the best
pen to take notes with for all you journalists out there looking to buy a nice
pen.Finally, I have found that none of the Zebra Brush Pens could compare to a
real brush, so if you are looking for a pen to replicate that feeling for
calligraphy I would go with a pentel pocket brush pen. This pen has however
filled a nice little niche as my go to pen for more detailed work and for
All in all, I will definitely be buying this pen again. At 2.50 a piece it is a

This is easily the best ever drawing pen [sort of a felt tip brush pen] that I
have ever used. And I have used many different types, from France, Germany,
Japan etc. This one is the mother of all drawing pens. Can also be used for
other stuff such as caligraphy and any work where you need variation of line.
Easily can go from thin to thicker line. Perfect for comics, manga etc. Hobby.
This pen is a secret by many artists who ordered it via 'special' connections
from Japan and now available finally on JetPens. BTW, all other brush pens from
Zebra are great and I use them all but this one is used the most together with
fine and medium one completes a perfect set for drawing.

Nice flow of ink
Perfect for making characters/drawing
I like the glittery blue body
If you draw a line too fast for the brush it could easily fade as you press on
A bit gritty when you press on paper
Overall worth the affordable price and enjoy using it

One big problem. Unfortunately...

One big problem. Unfortunately, it's a big one.
When these pens are good, they're really good. They get the strokes finer than I
can with the sharpest lead, and that's absolutely incredible. And vital, once
you come to expect that of it.
But for every super fine pen I've received in the mail that fits the bill,
there's another that seemed busted or dull at the tip. This downgrades it to a
simple "fine" version of the pen. And that's not what I have in mind. There
doesn't seem to be any way to guarantee this won't happen. Fortunately, they're
inexpensive for such a fine pen. When I bought more, I did it in bulk just to
heighten my chances of getting the fine tip I hoped for. It's simple
If you've bought said pens and never had this problem, I'm happy for you. But at
the same time I'm really jealous. I have no idea what you do differently to
avoid this problem. D:
Excellent pen. Glaring detail lost in the shuffle. 5/5 for when it works. 2/5
when it doesn't.
