Compared to other Medium nibbed fude pens, this one is AWFUL. I usually love Kuretake's fude pens (I use the Fudegokochi on a daily basis to ink in my sketchbook), but this one is horrible. The nib is very stiff- there's no flex like one would expect from a brush pen, and it arrived dry. If you're looking for a Medium nib fude pen to ink sketches with, I recommend looking at the Sailor Mitsuo Aida or Pilot's Pocket Brush in Soft.

These pens are great for inking, although the nib is a little soft for my personal taste (I'm heavyhanded). I've tested a lot of fude pens, and while this isn't my overall favorite, the fact that they are not only affordable but available in a wide variety of colors makes them an enticing addition. If you're an artist looking to add a little color to your sketches, the Pentel Touch is a strong choice.

Not as good as the original Mono erasers, but since those've been removed from the market, these are a great runner up. For the most part, these erasers erase cleanly, without tearing up my paper or smearing. If you have a lot of soft graphite on the page, I recommend erasing slowly, otherwise there will be smearing from the graphite buildup on the eraser itself.

These are more for decoration than for erasing. I bought them to be cute desk accessories, and they work perfectly for that. They also work well as props for Rement sets or to pose with BJD's, but I highly recommend you DONT erase with them. The plastic content in them is high, making them hard to erase with, and they'll smear your drawings.

These are ok, especially if you use traditional pencils. I bought these as grips for my mechanical pencils, my Pentel GraphGear 1000 cuts into my index finger, and I wanted a cushion. I have had trouble finding grips that fit mechanical pencils, and I'd hoped that since these are flexible, they'd do a good job and stay on. Unfortunately, they side a lot, and aren't as cushy as I'd hoped, so I ended up removing them.

I LOVE these pens! Usually gel pens, especially white gel pens, dry up so fast on me, and end up ruining the inks that I'm trying to correct. Not these! These pens last for a long time, and the white gel is very opaque. Once it's dry, you can ink over it again, and it wont reactivate. Perfect for comic artists. I tend to buy these in bulk- 10 per order, because they're always needed.

I use this brushpen along with my Kuretake fudegokochi to ink sketches in my sketchbook. I use it to ink over bluelines (made with Color Eno lead in soft blue) and the ink goes over the non photo blue pigment smoothly. The nib is stiffer than the fudegokochi, which makes these two pens perfect partners for on the go cartooning.

This is a great Copic proof (but not waterproof!) ink that works well in both nib and brush.

These are not a great watercolor brush, if you're looking for that, I strongly recommend Neopiko 4 watercolor brushes. When I add water to most of these colors, they separate into their individual pigments, which I find detrimental to the way I watercolor. I do not recommend these if you intend to attempt actual watercolor techniques.
