I bought this to see how it would stack up to the pentel pocket brush. So far
I've really liked it, not as a replacement for my pocket brush, but a companion.
As where I find my pocket brush to be a bit more unruly and not very good for
thin, delicate lines, this brush is very well suited for thinner, more
controlled lines. It isn't very good for blocking in black areas but seeing as
it is called an outline brush, I'd assumed it's not really meant for that so no
harm no foul. The only thing I wish is that it came in a refillable form.
Anyway, this is a very high quality disposable brush at a very reasonable price.
I love this lead, but a word of warning: this is NOT 2B. I'd say it's more a 5
or even 6B. But I love to use very soft lead, So it suits my needs perfectly. So
if you don't like soft lead, I'd steer clear.
I bought this pen because I had read in another review that they were juicer
than microns, and boy are they! It doesn't allow for very much line variation,
but it is such a smooth pen to draw with; you'll never have to go over lines
twice like I sometimes do with my microns. I still love my microns and probably
won't be buying these too often (the price is a bit steep for me) but I'd
recommend them to someone looking to try something a little different and who
has a little bit of extra money in their billfold.
