no, this wouldn't work on the pentel. the hole on this cartridge is much bigger, i'm pretty sure the ink would just leak everywhere. get the kuretake pen, i think it's even better than the pentel.

Nice saturated ink, flows really well too. My favorite thing about this cartridge is the small metal ball that sits at the opening -- when you snap the cartridge into a pen, the ball is forced up into the reservoir where it bounces around and keeps the ink mixed! Really good design.

So far I've only used the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and this one, but I like this one much better. The ink flows faster, allowing fast strokes to stay more saturated. The tip of the pen body is more tapered, so you can comfortably hold it further down for more precise work. Also what's cool is the Kuretake ink cartridges have a small metal ball blocking the hole - when you snap the cartridge into the pen, the ball is forced into the cartridge where it stays and keeps the ink mixed up. Awesome!

Also, I ordered 4 of these and they all came loaded with 2 full pieces of lead.

I think this is a pretty sturdy pencil component. It's scary to take apart at first - if you look closely at the metal tube about half an inch above the spring, you can see a small seam where the parts overlap. Pull hard and they'll separate, but you have to be very careful: if you don't keep them perfectly straight, the lead pieces inside can break.

These components work really well with the pen. The very tip of the cartridge has a small ring that can't go past the tip of the pen body, so after the pencil tip is already down, you just press the pen's button down a little more to make tiny clicks that advance the lead inside the cartridge. It's easy once you try it.

This pen takes a little dexterity to load and change - you have to look down the open barrel and push your refill into one of 5 holes until you feel a small click. The buttons depress very smoothly, stay down while you're writing, and pop right back up when you press a different one. The pen body is completely smooth, and I love how the bottom is clear so you can see all your pen/pencil tips lined up.

I'm so glad someone came out with a multi-pen that's this customizable. In mine I have a black gel ink pen and 4 mechanical pencils (with graphite, red, orange and blue leads). I LOVE IT, It's all I need for writing, sketching or drawing on the go.

These leads do break pretty easily, and wear down fast too (especially the orange). Not the best for extensive drawing, but might be nice just for small sketches or color-coded notes...

This pen is great-- 4 nice quality ballpoint pens, and a mechanical pencil. It's everything I need. I wish the eraser was a little bigger, but they sell refills so I'll deal with it. Overall, nice! Get the pen!
