I just recieved my pen...
, March 3, 2012
I just recieved my pen in the mail and could not be happier. I ordered on a
tuesday and I received my package on friday with the free shipping. I do have to
say though that this pen does not come in a wood gift box but rather a cardboard
box like the 1 pictured. It does come with a oil cartridge installed in the pen
to keep three sable hair from drying out. So when you first go to use it remove
the pill cartridge and rinse the bristles in warm water then install the ink
cartridge and with a scrap piece off paper Betsy for a good 20 to 30 minutes to
get the ink flowing past the oil residue. Because off those three ink will be
quite thin and grey for the first day until you work work enough ink through it.
After that though I am happy to report that the ink supplied is water proof and
even stands up to alcohol markers such as my Copics. The sable tip is wonderful
and I finally jabber a brush poem that it's comparative to my inking brushes. I
had been using a Pentel pocket brush pen and can say that this pen is in another
league and definitely worth the money.
