The Sai watercolor brushes are fabulous. The colors are complex and the brush
points are sharp for super fine lines. These have real bristle brushes, not a
foam brush-shaped tip so they take some practice to get a great range of shapes
but they are so beautiful and super juicy too.
I\'m speechless. I got the silkiest, smoothest fountain pen I have ever owned.
Its got a lovely fine tip and its outperformed my more expensive Waterman and
Lamy pens. And it folds up into its compact size that fits in a pocket or bag
with no issues.
I\'m a left-handed writer with a hook and the Kaweco pen glides, no matter what
angle I hold it. I\'ve always had to fight to find the sweet spot with other
fountain pens but not the Kaweco Sport Classic. Its a dream to use! Highly
I am so pleased with my Slicci multi-pen. I loaded it with Coral Pink, Lime
green and black 0.4 cartridges and they all wrote smoothly the second they
touched the paper. I like the barrel on this pen -- it seems slimmer than the
3-color Hi-Tec-C although I do miss the softer rubber grip on the Hi-Tec-C. Its
a bit of a challenge to see which color is pushed down without looking closely
at the pen barrel but I agree it would probably be much more challenging with a
colored barrel version.
All-in-all, I like using this much better than the super skinny, individual
Sliccis though I do dream of a rubberized grip.
I just got my Pilot Opt in Stardust Blue. While I bought the pencil for its
awesome aesthetics, I'm pleased with its weight, shape and performance. The
stock leads are smooth, the eraser (while tiny) works decently and the rubber
grip makes for comfortable writing. I didn't even realize it was a shaker pencil
until today and its the first shaker pencil I've purchased so I've enjoyed the
cheap thrill of shaking out the lead. Recommended!
I absolutely love the Hi-Tec series of pens. The complexity of their colors is
unique and beautiful, they are not just bright "crayola" colors.
FYI, the Hi-Tec-Cs are not water resistant. I was so hoping they would be since
the fine line quality and amazing color totally lends itself to sketching and
mixed media. Just don't mix with watercolors or it's smear-city.
