I am really impressed...

I am really impressed with this ink. It works really well with dip pens for calligraphy and drawing as well as for painting. I found with this colour I was able to get a good range of lights and darks for monochromatic work. I did a full review of it here for anyone that is interested in knowing more : http://www.gentianosman.com/2012/04/rohrer-and-klinger-drawing-and.html

A great brush pen! Definitely...
December 25, 2009
A great brush pen! Definitely reminds me a lot of the Zebra Brush pens as far as line width and flexibility. I really like black and grey ones like these. I thought it was neat the packages include a template to help with the placement when writing kanji on greetings etc. I have never seen those included with other brush pens before but I thought it was a good idea!

I think this is a lovely well made case. I like the simple clean design and the fabric has a nice soft feel. I really like that it is easy to access your stuff as it is all laid out. I will have to see how it holds up over time, but I think I shall buy another (or two) in the future.

I love this Style Fit....

I love this Style Fit. I previously purchased a 5 colour body, and I think it is too wide for me. I know some may not like this one, as they have a thinner body close in size to the Pentel Slicci pen. Personally I like thinner pens and I like the sleek design. You can also remove the label with the information and bar code. I think it would be a great accompaniment for a planner or diary.

I really like this holder. Its shape and grip make it very comfortable. The only thing is it may not work with some other brands/types of nibs.
These are wonderful!...

These are wonderful! I found the nib easy to use and quite smooth when writing compared to other brands I have tried. I really like that it has both top and bottom reservoirs to hold more ink. The nib is straight cut making it suitable for either left or right handed calligraphers. I'm definitely going to purchase the other widths available.

It's a really a cute little brush, and it performs very well. Length wise, It's a little bit shorter than the Pilot Petit 1 Fountain Pen when capped. The brush size is close to a No 1 Round Brush. I think it will be very portable, and perfect for smaller scale work and sketchbooks.

These are quite nice...
October 11, 2009
These are quite nice fountain calligraphy pens. I like the nib, and it serves well for finer point calligraphy or italic writing. It can also be used whether you are left or right handed. The nib can be unscrewed from the body, and fitted onto pens like the Pilot Prera. I wish that Pilot would start selling the broader nib (BB) for this pen though. Some might not like the grip section though and it takes a bit to get used to.

I love the thinner body...

I love the thinner body of this pen, as it is a lot like using a paint brush. I think the Akashiya Pens require a lighter hand to get the very fine lines, and this might take a bit of practice for some.
This is a great addition...

This is a great addition to the Akashiya line. If you already like their other pens, then you will enjoy these. They write with a finer line, and has a lovely muted colour palette. In an interview with an Akashiya representative, he mentioned they designed these pens to appeal to females, and decided with a thin body to resemble makeup tools. I thought that was interesting.

I have noticed that the Akashiya pens tend to work better on watercolour papers with Alpha cellulose content like Canson Montval and Strathmore 400 Watercolour paper. The lines are easily washed over and re-soluble on papers like these. Otherwise, working with them by dissolving some colour on a palette is an easy way to gain more control over the medium. For line drawing, they are very nice when utilized on sumi-e papers, and papers with a bot more tooth to them.

Overall I really enjoy experimenting with these pens, and I think they are a very unique product.
