Kuretake Fountain Brush PenAn elegant pen that has a sumi brush tip made from white synthetic nylon. The tip is very soft and flexible offering various sumi brush strokes. This fountain pen is ideal for traveling and is very popular with our local customers.There are many knock offs of this pen available on the internet at lower prices. This however is the original sumi brush pen made in Japan. The quality of the look a likes can not compare to these pens. Yes the Japanese labor costs are considerably higher than other countries but you do get what you pay for. This pen is worth the extra expense.

First off this pen is a dream. The ink is a deep, rich, smooth, matte black. I have used it on various surfaces (sumi, marker, watercolor, etc. Paper) all with sensational results. Because the tip is strands of individual hairs and not a felt tip (like typical brush markers) the pen is very similar to a watercolor brush in strand and diameter, yet shorter by half in actual brush length. The diameter being close to the size of a #2 or # 3 paint brush (0.2 cm). The length of just the brush is 0.9 cm (total length 13.5 cm) which allows a greater control for details, drawing and calligraphy. I am a sumi-e hobbyist and was looking for a travel/detail pen to sketch with. I use to use my brush tip markers but never could get that brush-like look. With this pen I can get the textures and strokes that are unique to hair brushes and the control and convenience of a pen. I now use the pen for many things, including but not limited to, miniature sumi-e paintings, adding fine details to my larger paintings and even for writing.
AND NOW FOR THOSE OF YOU WANTING TO SKIP ANOTHER RAVING REVIEW....
INK CONVERTER IS AVAILABLE.It's called the Platinum Fountain Pen Converter and I found it on "Jetpens" (I check with Amazon cuts.svc. If I could say this since the site adver. w/Amazon). So don't shy way from this pen if that is a concern. You can now have your pen and your ink too.
I purchased a second pen to verify that the first was defective, and that my experience was anomalous--so many other reviewers were satisfied with the pen, as I was, initially. Sure enough, by comparing pens I found that the plastic inner cap of the first was too far forward. The moral of this story is that one has to be alert to the possibility that the inner plastic cap can move forward if it is loose. This can cause a crimp in the nylon brush.
UPDATE: The replacement nib comes with a clear plastic cap that can replace a defective cap. It's not as aesthetic as the original cap, but it works and it completely eliminates the problem with defective inner components that move foward to permanently and prematurely crimp the brush. This is because the plastic cap has no such components.
go for it. I was worried that the brush might dry out. But not a chance came back in an hour or two and it wrote just fine. The cap is air tight. This is a piece of perfection.
On the upside, IMO this is a high-quality pen and it has a nice weight. It was also really cool to see the ink flow into the brush bristles when installing the ink cartridge for the first time. Capillary action. *science*
