Pentel Pocket Brush Pen for Calligraphy - PENTEL XGFKP-A
  This is the best brush..., August 25, 2011
This is the best brush pen I have come across so far.

I have tried out several after and before this one, and I must say, this really, to me, is the best. I think comparing it with felt-tip brush pens isn't necessary at this point, felt-tips just feel totally different than "hair" tips. The feeling of authenticity can only really be conveyed via 'hair' tip brush pens I think.

Recently, I bought the Pentel Standard Brush Pen (tsumi tip - a little thicker than the pocket brush pen) to have another hair/nylon tip to compare the pocket brush pen with. I wrote a little review on it as well. This one still remains my favourite.
Both drawings and writing kanji works smoothly and beautifully, the ink is rich and deeply black, it's waterproof (when I use a waterbrush on the writings, the ink would run and a slightly pink background colour would appear with the Standard Brush Pen, however with the Pocket Brush pen, nothing would happen apart from the thin paper rippling)

All in all, I absolutely recommend this brush pen. I'm sure it will make you happy.
Pentel Standard Brush Pen - Tsumi Tip - PENTEL XFL2U
  I bought this brush pen,..., August 25, 2011
I bought this brush pen, alongside others, to test whether there was anything better than my so-far-favourite Pentel Pocket Brush Pen (PENTEL XGFKP-A)
Although the size of this pentel standard tsumi tip might be surprisingly big for some, I do like quite the feel of it. It makes kanji strokes look beautiful and artistic with the light "spring" in the tip, I adore that. The ink is nicely black as well, however all in all I still prefer the Pentel Pocket Brush pen. For one, ots ink seems to come out a bit more regularly and "completely". With the Standard Brush Pen, when writing on normal printing paper, the ink is a little "runny", or rather, the contours aren't smooth. Another point is, that when water is applied to the paper, the ink will run a little, and the background will colour lightly pink. With the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen however, nothing happens. It's absolutely water proof.
Hope I could be helpful to some!
