, March 17, 2010
I'm an illustrator and was looking for a good brush pen that could emulate an
actual brush and still be pocketable. I've used brushes and brush pens for years
and this one is the best I've found, hands down. The sable hair has a good snap
that most pens are missing and holds a point perfectly. It makes a great range
of marks from very fine to thick. It also has a fantastic weight and I love the
matte finish both aesthetically and functionally. The one downside is the
supplied ink. While the flow is very nice, the opacity is not. The ink seems to
be more dark grey than black. I'd recommend getting the converter for sure. All
in all, a great tool and worth the cost, far superior to the other Kuretake
brush pens I've tried. The next best thing to using a brush!
