I do not know why this...
I do not know why this product would get any reward. Ok, it looks nice, but I'm sure the designer never used it for erasing - because its useless!
The shape makes it worse than a standard one, as there are less corners you can actually use for erasing. And especially when you come to the end of one of those cubes, it just gets bad.
Sorry, but this is just bad untested design.

I'm using this since...
I'm using this since years now after I found them in Japan. After trying literally hundreds of pens this is the one I stuck with. It creates a great line - it allows perfect control over the line width, by being a bit firmer than other brush pens.
Additionally it is good for transporting in a pocket - it never runs out (just sometimes the ink gets very fluid, I have not figured out why yet). It's perfect if you're learning Japanese writing - learning a nice style and stroke order will come more natural to you.
Only drawback is that the tip quality goes down fast - especially the very fine top and fluidy goes away fast - you have to switch every month or so (depending on the use of course). A more durable tip would make this the perfect pen.
