The perfect brush pen....
, May 12, 2013
The perfect brush pen. The bristle tip is slightly shorter and snappier than the
Pentel's, making fine lines easier and slightly more controllable. This really
is a quality pen, with beautiful strokes and amazing potential. I wouldn't say
that the price difference between this and the Pentel is justified, but if you
want the absolute best, this would be it. Plus, the huge advantage with the
Kuretake No. 13 is that it can be fitted with Platinum Carbon ink cartridges (no
need for a converter- the cartridges are identical in shape!) so you can get the
blackest, most waterproof lines along with a stunning brush tip and beautiful
pen body. It does require a lot of practice to master if you haven't used brush
pens before, though, and even then is not suited for all kinds of artists- you
need to do slow, loving, fine, detailed work with this one- this is not for
quick, aggressive large scale drawings!
