5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't DO without them!, May 14, 2005
This review is from: Sakura 30062 6-Piece Pigma Micron Ink Pen Set, Black (Kitchen)
I am an avid pen and pencil artist. I have tried several brands of pens, these being a "must have" for me. They last quite awhile, the point stays firm, and the ink does not "bleed". The smallest is .005, largest .08. My favorites are the .005 and .01, but I own all sizes and colors. I HIGHLY recommend this set to start with, but beware - once you try these, you will be hooked!

They sound wonderful. I had read a book that suggested purchasing sakura pens, and I grumbled at first, and decided to wait awhile, and see if I needed them. I need them. It's a huge hassle thickening lines by hand when I could have just bought a decent set of black pens. I write and draw, so I go through pens quickly. I'll stop inflicting cheap writing pens on my art.

I'm teaching myself how to draw. I practically abandoned drawing from the time I was seven until this year (I'm twenty-nine). This was all because I had been considered the best artist around by many of the other kids...until we met a brilliant art prodigy. So, I'm doing my best to make it up to myself for making such a cruddy mistake when I was seven.

Sorry for being a pest, by the way.

FYI: The pen model numbers do not have decimal points, the linewidths do. 005 = 0.20 mm, 01 = 0.25 mm, 02 = 0.30 mm, etc.

I thought .005 seemed a bit impossible, thanks for that

I love using these, although I was using the 005 and the tip basically just went flat. Now, my 005 is kind of pointless to use because it make a far larger line than I would like. Other than that, these are some of my favorite pens!!!
