This pen also restores honor- but only if you buy it with the refills.

the line width can very a lot with this pen nib. I've found that i haven't had to alternate pens as much. can't say much else! try it out and enjoy! practice makes perfect with dip pens and this comes with 10 nibs so if you mess up somehow you still have more chances.

Good waterbrush! I can't say I used it all day everyday but i've been able to paint just about anywhere with this brush its a lovely thing to have (the tip is now a bit tinted from uses but this doesn't rub off i assume it has just tinted the bristles)! Its a soft sort of plastic brush and is very smooth. Once the top came off in my bag- i thought it might be ruined because it was so smashed but i squeezed some water into it and it was good as new. Its pretty safe from abuse. If you want to color more areas i suggest getting something larger than medium.

Dry watercolors are best for this kind of pen. Sheet water colors as well. i use sheets of watercolor paper (peerless) and glue them in my wet/dry media sketchbook and basically paint wherever without pulling out a watercolor tray. This set up has been pretty ideal for me.

Anyway- get this pen if you like to paint and go! get multiple different sizes too :)

This is a quality pen. Kuretake 33 is impressive and definitely worth its price in every way. I've had a very bad falling out with my search for decent brush pens but I'm glad i listened to the suggestions to get this one! It can get thick lines and thin lines. You can be consistent with the thinness of the lines if you just practice with the pressure a bit and you'll know what it takes it get a certain thickness. The brush does not fray at all and like someone else has stated has a very springy tip so it recovers itself nicely. I prefer disposables and i can just stock up on these pens no problem. If you aren't sure on what kind of brush pen to get this is probably a good place to start. 2 is probably ideal one for theory and another for practice?
