I do so hope that this gets noticed in the sea of (Kuretake especially) brush
pens available, because I will need another one (or five) once mine wears out.
It's basically a long pointy and fair haired high quality synthetic brush
plugged into a well-fed pen, like a proper brush that never runs out. No squeeze
necessary. The body is very snazzy in a utilitarian functional way, it doesen't
show in the pic but it's like a slightly metallic cold brown with a subtle shift
towards red/pink. The cap has three raised ridges to stop it from rolling (nice
attention to detail). The elongated barrel is comfortable and does make it more
brushlike, a normal pen body would probably have affected its usability
negatively. It weighs next to nothing like it should. I use it for art, and
having only plugged in a Pentel Standard super fine for a short spin (with the
hideous off-blue black ink bundled with it so maybe I'm not objective) I easily
prefer this over that for my own uses which is typical fine art ink drawings -
think tapered clouds with brush cross hatching or comics/illustrations with
rustic patterns and textures. I think both have their use and I really haven't
fully evaluated the Pentel yet so dont hesitate to try either, but this is a
comparably soft (but still perky elastic) brush with which only your dexterity,
pace and handling is the limit to how fine and expressive a stroke you can make
with it. The Pentel felt more stubby. Works great with Platinum carbon ink
cartridges and like noted the flow can be everything from somewhat dry to wet
depending on how you store it, how much you lace on with it, if you shake it to
get the flow going and so on. I recommend to store it horizontally laying down.
