1) they're more inky. The colors look more vibrant than my Tombows.
2) the tip is sturdier/stiffer, with almost a sponge-like consistency (think Crayola markers with a more flexible tip). I've found that these tips hold up much better than the Tombows, which fray and drive me bonkers. Stiffer tip reduces the wobble factor too.
3) price. I feel it's a better brush pen than the Tombow, and at a better price.
The one benefit Tombows have over these is that they're dual brush pens (extra tip on the other end).
I especially recommend these brush pens for beginner letterers--the firmer tip gives better control.
(See photo for comparison between Tombow (black) and Kuretake (green).)
First, they're really easy to use for beginners (which I am). Some pens are really difficult to learn the correct pressure for the thick downstroke and thin upstroke. These seem to naturally go between thick and thin without much effort.
I love all of the colors. The grey is pretty light, which is great for adding shadows/dimension to a piece. All of the colors of the rainbow are represented and really vibrant.
I love these so much, I bought a second pack for a friend who's beginning to learn brush lettering.
The only downside is that the downstroke isn't super thick. If you want a huge contrast between up and down, you'll need a pen with a longer nib. But if you're just learning, I haven't found any better pens. For the price they're an absolute steal!!!
For those of you who also have the Clean Color Real Brush (CCRB) pens and are interested in the Pocket Brush pens or vice versa, these are the differences and similarities in colors:
Carmine Red (022), Pink (025), Yellow (050), Brown (060), Light Green (041), Green (040), Blue (030), and Light Gray (091) are all the same in both types.
Orange CCRB #070 is lighter, more yellow orange, Pocket #023 is deeper, more red orange.
Lighter blues: Cobalt Blue CCRB #031 is lighter blue which I would call sky blue, Pocket #032 is a significantly deeper blue.
Purple Violets: Light Violet CCRB #081 is more violet and brighter, Pocket #083 is not as bright and has more blue in it.
Pocket Brush #061 is an ochre/deep yellow, and is not in the CCRB set of 12.
Black CCRB #010 is not in the Pocket pens set.
The Pocket Color Brush Pen set is a bargain to get the bright colors of the more expensive Real Brush pens. I wish the Pocket pens had a larger set available.

Colores muy vivos
Llegaron muy rápido, es una opción genial para iniciarse en el lettering sin gastarse mucho
The colours are nice and bright. The tips have a fair bounce back, though the very tip can tend to stay just the slightest bit bent.
I would recommend them for beginners, but make sure you're using smooth paper.
The shipping was fast considering they came from japan.
