Kuretake No. 33 Brush...
, November 23, 2011
Kuretake No. 33 Brush pen (soft) is one of those brush pens you really need to
try out at least once; You owe it to yourself. The brush itself is surprisingly
springy despite the soft "bristles." The tip has a small nib of flexible felt so
you can ease up on the pressure and make incredibly tiny and detailed strokes
that doesn't seem to get worn down. It feels much nicer to use than most brush
pens since it seems more responsive and doesn't require much force to get
thicker strokes down. The brush itself is pretty sturdy as well; for example, I
had accidentally slammed one pen brush side down into the paper too hard and
bent it, but it didn't seem to affect the quality much. I would advise against
holding it in the middle or end of the pen, since you do get the ink on your
palms and fingers if you hold it near the bottom.
