Personally, this lead suits me perfectly. It has never broken on me except for
when I've accidentally dropped the pencil and it landed at an awkward angle. I'm
a little heavy handed when it comes to drawing but it's still held up strong for
me as long as the lead isn't way too far out.
While it claims that it doesn't smudge, it does, but far, far less than any
other lead I've ever used does. Normally I'm covered in graphite, but this lead
reduces it by at least 90%, making my paper much cleaner when I draw.
You get 15 leads per tube which is 3 more than you'll get with other leads from
Also, the case these come in is perfect. You twist the cap, not pop it open,
making accidentally spilling and losing all of your lead much harder to do. As I
wrote this, I popped open a case of the o.7mm leads to compare them to this
lead, and they spilled everywhere.
The pen/tube itself is comfortable to hold, and despite its simplistic design,
it's kind of pretty, too. Love matching it with a 0.3mm Pilot airblanc pencil.
The eraser is great. It can get into small areas and it erasers better than any
other retractable eraser I've used. However, if you push too hard or use the
eraser at too much of angle, the eraser can break off. It's not a huge problem,
just something to keep in mind.
I personally love the eraser and already bought a second one and plenty of
This brush pen is fantastic! It works just like a marker, and goes on a little
opaque, allowing you to build up color a little. It's a nice, light color that
you can easily darken by going over the same area twice, which is great for
It seemed to be picking up the black ink I used on the outlines a bit, but it
wasn't very much at all and it didn't cause a ton of bleeding. I only wish there
more colors to choose from, because I would totally want a full set.
I LOVE this pen. It was my first brush pen but it's gotten me hooked. I'm
ordering more, in fact!
The tip is nice and flexible but easy to control, though I'm worried it'll give
out quickly, especially if you push too hard. Either way, it's great for the
price, the ink doesn't seem to smudge or bleed through and it gives some really
great outlines when inking pictures. Even the fine tip makes filling in larger
areas nice and fast while still being precise.
This pen writes very smoothly. Beautiful design, lovely, vibrant ink color,
really smooth flowing ink with no skipping. The area of the pen that you grip
feels very cheap, but it hardly detracts from how nice it is to write with this
