This is one of the most wonderful (and waterproof!) brush pens I have come
The ink comes out sleek and precise, and beautifully black. You can both draw
the finest of lines as well as nice, medium~thick ones. I would say this one
works a little better for kanji than for western writing, at least when writing
cursive, it can be a little tricky to write accurately. The colour is very rich
and thorough, but probably works best on smooth paper. When writing on thick,
rough paper (say, for water colour works), the ink will be sucked up a little
bit around the edges, so it won't be as crisp anymore.
I also use the Pentel Standard Brush Pen (tsumi tip:
http://www.jetpens.com/Pentel-Standard-Brush-Pen-Tsumi-Tip/pd/2416). Both are
very similar, but here's for some minor differences: The Standard seems a tiny
bit blacker. When writing calligraphy, the font gets a little wilder feeling to
it, and it can also give you the effect of a drying brush (small white spots)
around the edges of your writing, something the Pocket Brush rarely does.
However, and this might be important to some of you: I found the Pocket Brush
Pen to be ABSOLUTELY waterproof, while the Standard Brush Pen smudged even after
minutes of having it let dry.
