From the manufacturer
Archival Pigma Ink
Invented by Sakura in 1982, continues to be the most reliable in on the market today. Pigma ink benefits:
● Pigment based ink using single color pigments.
● Fade Resistant.
● No smears or feathers on most papers.
● Ink dries to pH neutral.
Pigma Pigment Based Ink Performance
Pigment Molecules are 100 times bigger and more chemically complex than dye molecules allowing it to stay within the top layer of the paper rather than absorbing through the paper causing bleed-thru.
Pigment Versus To Dye Ink
The larger and more chemically complex molecules inherently makes them longer lasting; therefore, less susceptible to UV rays, chemical degradation and pollution from contact with oils.

I bought these Sakura Fine Ink Brush Pens 2 days ago and just as it says ... fine details with "black ink." The Brush tip is short compared to the other brush pens mentioned however, it has great range from semi-wide to ultra thin brush stroke lines. You can easily make fine lines "consistently" and "without effort" as small as 0.03 or less if using a light touch with minimal effort. This Pen also makes lines slightly greater than 0.5/0.7 (measured against my professional mechanical inking pens). However, the Sakura's "fine brush pen 50025," strength lays in making fine to very fine brush strokes. It works very well with both Copic and Faber-Castell Ink Pens as well as Higgins. I am extremely pleased with the way this Brush Pen performs and it does exactly the fine lined detailed work it's supposed to do.
I just bought another 2-pack set of Fine and I bought a set of 3 (Fine Medium and Bold) Sakura Pigma Pro. Brush pens. I expect good things from this set also. I love my Pitt pens from Faber but, I'm excited that I no longer have to worry about fine lined brush stokes anymore with this addition to my inking tools.
I am a portrait and comic artist, (yes I know, it seems like two extremes). I own and use Inking Nibs with Higgins Ink. I have my old school Koh-I-Noor + Staedtler Mechanical Pen Sets (the whole range 0.025 to 1.2, though I don't use these often anymore... take to long to clean), Sakura Inking Pens (0.1 to 0.5), Copic SP Multiliner (the whole range from 0.03 to 0.7 and the brush), Faber-Castell Pitt Pens (Ink Pens - Fine through bold and of course the Ink Brush Pens and different Brush Pen types) and of course Prismacolor Illustration Pens (same as the Faber but less of) and several other brands.
These days I primarily use the Copic SP Multiliner Pens (the classic nibs) with the Faber-Castell Pitt Pens (Primarily the Brush Pens). I've felt previously that I always lacked a consistent Fine-Lined Inking Brush Pen and would have to break out my brushes and a jar of Higgins Ink, more often than not for fine brush strokes. I can honestly say that these Sakura Professional "FINE" Ink Brush Pens, will now be a primary option for those fine details that I want with a "brushed" style of thin to very fine and ultra fine strokes.
Since this is the first review written for these pens on amazon.com, I opted to be as detailed and through as I could; i hope it's not to much.
I don't know yet how long these pens will last (aka how much ink is in the pen) as of yet. When I know, I'll update my review. However, the pen is as thin and long as a normal writing pen (perhaps a tiny bit longer. I'd imagine, the "Fine" pens should last a while considering they are designed and built for "Fine & Ultra Fine Details." Used as such, you're more than often going to switch out pens to something wider for everything else but details. Thus, they should last a long while, with a good amount of use, if stored correctly. Wider versions would be used up more often; as such normally goes. Basing these on my other Sakura Pens with Mechanical Nibs, they last surprisingly long. Sakura makes good products.
I dare say, this pen (the Fine Brush pen) is even better than the Faber-Castell Pitt Brush Pens for fine details.
