An odd quirk that is confusing is that some vendors like Amazon list these as Yasumoto Niji whereas in many others list them as Kuretake Niji. They all have Kuretake stamped on the side so they are apparently the same brush pen.
I like to draw jewelry and clothing sketches so I do a lot of fine drawing work and this brush with its very fine pointed tip worked really well for this type of work. I use Derwent's Inktense Pencils and the darker colors stained the brush tip but this hasn't been an issue, I haven't seen any color transfer onto lighter colors and when I paint with just water, the water comes out clear.
The reservoir is a little tricky to fill with its tiny tiny opening, but once its filled up, it lasts a long time and does not leak. To get the water, you gently press on the reservoir and a little bead of water comes out. It's really neat. I tend to drop the first bead of water on my hand so that I can control how wet the brush is before painting over the inktense.
This waterbrush though is imminently portable, and I find myself reaching for the brush even when I'm not traveling because its no clean up, and I don't need to set up a whole station to paint a few sketches.
Compared to the sakura waterbrushes, I feel like the niji holds more water in it's hairs, which is great for watercoloring.
However, whenever I squeeze to get more water, my brush leaks where the cap is screwed onto the water compartment. Not sure if I have a defective one or something, but that's my only complaint. Otherwise, this is a very nice waterbrush, on par with sakura :)
