perfect for bold lines!
i bought this because someone I know uses them and they looked pretty nifty. And at 2.50 each I was willing to try them out. They came in, and they're perfect.
I've used it for 2 months now and not a single hair of it has frayed off, like my Sakura Lining set. The lines are staggered and vary from thin to thick, swooping and just downright gorgeous.
The ink is perfectly black, it tones well with my black Prismacolor and everytime i start a line, I get a beautiful, dark ink. If you are a fan of bigger lines, this is the pen for you.
The fine isn't really as small as I had hoped (it's probably the equivalent of a .8mm - 1mm) , but compared to the medium it's small. The only time I had it fray, it was one single string that could be easily removed with tweezers, and the pen was as good as new.
I've left it uncapped for hours, ran it under water by accident, drawn lines through puddles of wet paper, swirled and stabbed it into my sketchbook and this is the MVP of art supplies. Super super recommend to anybody who needs a liner!
I'ts still the same beautiful dark black it was when I opened and tested it. This is my love and my life right now.
I'm probably going to start buying these in bulk and handing them out to my friends as gifts. Whenever they come over, they use it. It sometimes goes a little dry when you draw a really long, extended line, but that's probably because I usually forget to cap it.
TLDR: buy this. 15/10 definitely recommend.

great liner! i draw/write...
i draw/write in a very sketchy manner, constantly overlapping my lines and making things look messy/rugged, and when i bough this it was perfect! The tip is protruding very far out of the pen (i have bad experience with pens and concave tips) the pen itself writes smoothly (though the ink looks pretty gray when placed on top of pencil, erase the pencil and it will be a very pretty, dark black colored ink!) it does details very well, since most of my before thin pens have been worn down/dried and i have nothing but stocky markers :(
i love thin pens and this is a great pen for lining, sketching, writing, or anything you would need a smaller sized for (like detaails!)
the only thing i could see as a problem with this is that if you press very lightly at the end of a stroke, the gets sort of scratchy and leaves visible holes, so make sure to use constant pressure when using this pen!

wonderful pen! this...
this is everything i need, squished into one pen.
The black ink is dark and writes incredibly smooth. The second I put the tip on paper, it wrote evenly and smoothly, without and bumps or ink delays. The red pen is wonderful and vibrant, and you can apply different amounts of pressure to recieve anything from a soft pink to a stark crimson. This too is very smooth and comes out easily with no problems. The mechanical pencil is also fabulous, and it comes with lead and is very smooth. The transition between the three is very smooth, the three tabs are sturdy even when I clicked the pen back and forth for quite some time in my free time.
This is a wonderful pen, and I would 100% recommend it to anyone who needs a compact pen/pencil tool!

this is a pretty nice...
this is a pretty nice pen!
I bought it from Michael's, and now I;m buying an new one from here :D
I used Prismacolor and Copic markers, and when I need to highlight or accent dark things, this pen works pretty well. If you make a mistake and color out of the lines (or always color out of the lines, like me) it does a nice job of covering up... about 60- 75% of the stain. watch out for dark colours.
Though it does run a little dry if not used for a bit, and sometimes instead of solid lines, it leaves the inside blank, overall it does it's job. And for a nice price, as well! I guess you get what you pay for.
You can't really overlap with this- one coat and it will just junk up and gross-ify itself if you try to make a second coat. So don't do that. But in itself, it's not a bad pen. I recommend it to anyone who needs a quick white jelly pen! My friends all steal this from me when we're together.
