Akashiya New Brush Pen - Super Fine - Japanese Blue (Waterproof Ink) - AKASHIYA TSG-300
  This pen is nice, but..., September 30, 2010
This pen is nice, but it is not waterproof. It feels like the opposite - a watercolor brush. Even a week after drawing, the ink washes away with water with absolute ease. For this reason it works well for laying down the base of a watercolor sketch.

Also, to be clear, the color is much as shown - it's very grey, not blue at all.

I took off one star because I don't find the color to be particularly gorgeous - some greys are just lovely, this one's a bit ho hum. But it's a decent watercolor brush.
Noodler's Ink - Specialty Color Ink - 3 oz Bottle - Lexington Gray (Bulletproof) - NOODLERS 19042
  Lexington Gray is still..., August 18, 2010
Lexington Gray is still a dark-ish gray - enough that it feels to me similar to drawing with black, just softer and gentler in a very nice wy. It's a lovely shade. Right now I keep one Kuretake Hair Brush loaded with Lexington Gray and use it in conjunction with other pens loaded with Noodler's Bulletproof Black - that arrangement works quite nicely.
Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen - Hard - Blue Body - TOMBOW GCD-111

I love this pen for cartooning - you get a good variable width line, but it's a lot easier to handle - more controlled - than a hair brush pen. If you draw a line too fast it does get a bit dry, but other than that, it's a very good cartooning pen.

I think I like the tip on this one a little better the tip on the Zebra Sign Pen, but they're quite similar.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Basic Colors - Black - PILOT LH-20C4-B

These pens are great. I prefer the .4mm to the .3mm because the line is smoother and works well on a greater variety of papers. I find it to be much more reliable and smooth than Microns, however Microns are totally waterproof and I wouldn't recommend these for use with wet media unless you're looking for a water-soluble ink effect.

This pen is a joy to draw with. It's similar to the Pentel Pocket Brush, but with a touch more responsiveness. Of all the brush pens I've tried, this one is the most like using an actual brush.
