The pen writes smooth and has very black ink, plus it dries very quickly. I had
one go dry pretty quickly, but the warm water technique mentioned in the
description worked very well. I keep a few around for doodling or small comics,
but not for bigger work anymore.
I like this pen, the whole collection in fact, but over time I found it more
productive to just use a bottle of ink with a nib pen, or Sakura Microns to ink
manga. To me it's fine on its own for beginners like I was, but I was blowing
through it so fast (within two weeks) that I just went for an ink bottle or
completely disposable pens that were available locally.
I love this little case - my wallet doesn't have a spot for coins so I put it to
pretty good use. It's easy to keep clean and that was one of the things I was
worried about it since it's white and would be bouncing around in my bag, but
mine still looks new. And of course there's always the niceties that come with
people asking about it, and I tell them to go to Jetpens.
I'm very happy with the quality of this case. I got it as soon as I saw it in
stock because I had previously ordered the Robot-print case as a birthday
present for a friend (who was very happy with it) and I decided I wanted one
The material is durable and I use it to store 4 of my pink-body pens that match
it. It's very eye catching in class and at work, several people have asked where
I got it.
I use this pen all the time for crosshatching and very fine outlines. It's not
for people with heavy hands, and it's not the most durable pen for writing.
Whoever rates these lowly write way too heavily and should be using a different
pen to begin with. If you're looking for fine detailing and have the gentle hand
for such details, this pen is perfect. It doesn't just "wear out" after 30
The only negative review on this pencil must have been a joke - this lead is
wonderful and as durable as any 0.5 mm lead. Perhaps they have heavy hands?
This lead is great for underdrawings - I use it especially for comics that need
to be inked. It erases so much cleaner than standard lead and makes nice clear
