Unlike everything I've heard about these highlighters, I find the Mild Gray to be very dark--and a much darker effect than in the product photos. A bad batch? A change in formula?

Cute washi, but the scalloped edges are so wrinkled/crushed, they don't stick. The roll came in a box, not just a plastic wrapper, so I'm surprised at the condition and would have to blame the manufacturer. I would be cautious about buying any other washi with "nami nami" wavy edges.

Some of the individual stickers are tiny (the right size for using on a calendar), but they're so adorable. It's hard to resist stocking up on more.

This pen didn't work out at all. The ink comes out blobby and with an inconsistent line--sometimes very thick, sometimes super-thin, only occasionally as I'd expect a 0.38 tip to behave. I wouldn't try this one again :(

Not sure whether it's this model pen, or the individual pen I received, but this performs extremely poorly. It's difficult to get it started writing, then either there's barely any ink flow and a lot of skipping, or the ink comes out blotchy with thick flow. Not a good micro point pen. A major disappointment.

A very smooth writer with a very fine line. And beautiful to look at. (Note that I write with a very light hand, so the tiny point is plenty sturdy enough for me.) The hotel-style crest is maybe a little silly, but it plus the faceted cap (which posts aesthetically) plus the overall style just makes it nicer than the average pen to have lying around on the desk or whip out for note-taking in meetings.

Contrary to the other reviews, I'm having a terrible experience with this pen. I've cleaned it, changed inks, and it still writes "dry" to the point of not writing at all unless I scribble a bit with it to get it started--not only every time I uncap it, but sometimes every time I pause a bit to move down to the next line. I purchased it as a gift, and I'm glad I decided to load the cartridge and check it out before giving it.

I'll give it one more try with the wettest inks I have before I declare it completely defective, but after fussing with it for two days, I'm not sure it's worth spending a lot more time on this pen.

A soft, somewhat broad brush tip that's great for shading pen and ink drawings. Easy to control, not too dark, not too light. Another nice pen from Kuretake.

Pros: Nice fine line, lovely bluish dove grey ink. "Extra Fine" really is EF. I imagine it works great for writing characters with many detailed strokes.

Cons: These pens (well, refills, but I use them just as pens) tend to get blobs of ink on the tip while capped, no matter how they're stored. On some papers, they take an extremely long time to dry completely. I seem to be using up the ink very quickly, sketching rather than writing.

YMMV: The pen holders look weird with the refill sticking out the back. I'm not sure whether the blobbing problem has to do with something like the heat/pressure from using the refills without a holder. If I were more motivated to test them, I'd experiment, but I don't care for the holders and I like a narrow pen, and this is working well enough.

Overall: I love this soft grey for sketching and for fine, small writing, and it hasn't blobbed yet. It's functional enough to get a middle-of-the-road, 3-star review.

OK little doodling pen. It's cheap and it has a moderately fine line--after a page of drawing it settled down from that fresh-out-of-the-cap fineness. Supposedly it will survive for days on the desert of my desk when I forget to put the cap back on, so, THAT's its main selling point for me. It simply puts down a line, to frills, no thrills, and ok also for note taking. The slate grey ink is nice to work with, the triangular shape is easy on the fingers (YMMV: I like a narrower body on a pen...maybe it helps me focus on the line...). At this price, I won't worry about losing it or using it up (or knocking the cap off) if I toss it in my bag for random sketches.
