I've only used disposable fountain pens up 'til buying the Noodler's Ink
Fountain Pen, and there's a definite difference. I thought I'd used some decent
disposable fountain pens in the past, but this is way better then I expected.
Drawing and writing with this pen is like going from a Big Wheel to a Cadillac.
It's that good.
The materials used in the construction of this pen are cheap. Within the first
hour of using it the barrel split down the very thin side. What use I did get
from the brush was frustrating. I couldn't get the bristles to come to a point
no matter how much I rolled the brush tip. It pulled a very bad line when drawn
across paper. Two disposable synthetic brush pens I had bought the week before
have preformed better then this overpriced mess. And they were better
Since the other size Tachikawa Comic Nib Fountain Pen was already sold out I got
one of these instead. And based on the performance of this pen I can't wait for
the other pen to get back in stock.
The nib on this pen is very responsive. I've been drawing with other disposable
fountain pens and I can get a slight variation of line width with them. But
nothing like I can with this pen. The pen touch on this is incredible. If you've
used G-pen dip pen nibs you get the same kind of pen touch with this, only
without having to dip and clean the nib tip all the time. If you're a cartoonist
you'll find this to be a fantastic fountain pen.
Please, PLEASE ORDER MORE SOON! I want to buy a dozen of these!
