I love this pen. It has similar brush tip as the Pentel standard brush pen
(http://www.jetpens.com/index.php/cPath/221_517) , so if you like the standard
one, you will love this one, too.
I think it is using a thicker ink, the ink in Pentel standard is too thin to me,
even though it's still very black.
I bought this because I don't want to commit $27 before I know how the quality
of the pen is.
I'm very pleased with what I got. The tip is kind of hard, but I guess it's
because this is a super fine tip. If you have small hands, you can even use it
as a pocket pen without the $27 body, which makes it a very good buy.
I don't really want to buy this brush pen with Gray Ink, but somehow I place the
wrong order and received it.
The brush is very good, sharp, and the strokes are crisp and clean, although the
Gray color is more like a water down black, semi-transparent. Maybe it's good
for water painting?
