Top Customer Reviews
Their primary good feature is the ink, which is very dark, covers well, does not bleed through paper, and is waterproof and archival-quality . . . for real. It is an extremely high-quality ink, and that's why I keep buying them. I have found no better disposable pen in fifteen years.
The ink flow is moderate, neither too slow nor too free. They are well-suited for both outlining and for a more scratchy cross-hatching/scumbling approach, as they aren't so free-flowing that ink will wick out of them at the slightest touch of pen to paper. Put the tip down, leave it, that's about the size of the dot you get.
The ink dries quickly and does not easily smear, although on very smooth paper that absorbs slower, execute care. As they run out of ink, they flow less easily, which can be frustrating.
I draw in spurts, off and on, and have found that, unused, the pens will reliably last about a year if carefully stored (i.e., make sure the cap is on, it's not hot in the room, etc.). When using several sizes at once, cap them between use. The ink dries quickly on paper, which is great, but it also dries quickly in the tips. You can get them going again by writing a bit, but it's better to just take care.
They write and draw well on most regular drawing papers, but not so well on photo papers or papers with any sort of plastic or super-slick finish; for those jobs, there are Micron pens specifically for photo paper. They aren't Sharpies, and don't write on things besides paper.
The pen tips are not metal, but they are hard; they give a consistent line, and while there is some give, you will not get a terribly sensitive line out of them, and trying to do so will result in either bent nibs or metal nib housings (this can be a problem if you have a heavy hand, especially with the smaller sizes) or pen tips that are "soft" and will not draw as tight a line as before, or possibly tips that split.
Overall, good pens, and would be especially good for a young artist experimenting with pen and ink.
First off, they come in a variety of sizes, from the fairly thick .05 to the deliciously thin .005. It offers a nice range of line widths for artwork and a must-have for comic art. (And be sure to get the Brush Pen, the pen that acts like a mini-paintbrush!)
The peeve I have about Sakura Micron is that the tip of the .005 is a bit fragile and liable to bend, but considering how tiny it is, you sort of expect that.
Overall, a good pen whose sizes and alternate colors really make them stand out, but you have to be careful with the points, especially .005.
I've been using Microns since my days at Art School and will continue to do so as I continue in my career.
