I’ve been liking brush pens lately. From none, I now own three. One of them is the Akashiya Bamboo brush pen, which I must admit I bought because it was made of bamboo plus it had butterflies on it.
There is a butterfly on the cap.
There are two butterflies on the barrel, but I don’t think they’re ganging up on the loner up there.
The cap pulls off to reveal a plastic section. That section unscrews from the barrel so you can put in a cartridge or converter. This brush pen came with a box of 3 cartridges. I believe a Platinum converter will fit (if I remember the jetpens write-up correctly). The brush is made of synthetic hair, and reminds me of the Aquash brush.
To allow the plastic section to screw in, there is a threaded brass fitting inside the bamboo barrel.
The brush pen is longer than ordinary pens, and feels very light and easy to use.
It is slightly longer, capped, than a full-length colored pencil.
It takes some getting used to. For this one, I wanted to make very fast, loose strokes.
This one has more detail. (Obviously done during a longer meeting than the previous doodle.)
The ink in the supplied cartridges dries very glossy and black. I hope it’s available in bottles.
