Faber-Castell was established in 1761 by the cabinet maker Kaspar Faber, it is one of the oldest industrial companies in the world. The company is one of the world’s leading manufacturer of wood-cased pencils with a varied range of products for writing, drawing and creative design, as well as decorative cosmetics. Faber-Castell is renowned for its high quality, innovative products, commitment to tradition, and environmental awareness.
Lothar von Faber took over the family business in 1839. He is remembered, in particular, as a pioneer of the branded article who in creating his own brand name set a new standard. Today the eighth generation family member Count Anton-Wolfgang von Faber-Castell, who took over as head of the company in 1978, has been instrumental in new product development and the expansion of international activities. Count Faber-Castell takes delight in rediscovering products from the past and recreating them with timeless design and modern technology.

As a user of both Faber-Castell and Copic products, I can safely say that these stand up well to their more expensive counterparts.
They dont last as long as I would like, but then neither do the Copics, quality wise theyre top drawer.
India ink is still the king when it comes to colour fast though. All these types of pen are prone to fade over the years, where as, I have india ink art thats still black years later.
Buying these as set is a bargain price wise. As I write, the cost of a single XS pen on Amazon is roughly £4 so £6 for a set of 4 pens is a steal.
I like these pens, just not convinced it's worth buying more of them until I've tried other markers such as Tombow or some of the budget brands.
EDIT: Bought a small pack of Tombow dual brush markers and it was quickly obvious to me that they performed less well than expected BECAUSE I have no skill in calligraphy. The Tombows are longer pens, larger brushes, but on paper they didn't seem worth the hefty price tag compared to Pitt brush pens. So, unless you have any ounce of clue regarding calligraphy (which I don't) I would probably recommend the Pitt pens instead. If you're looking for a calligraphy brush pen, there are many tutorials on youtube using Tombows and I would go for them if you can afford them.
This review refers to the "Shonen" brush pen set.
Usually one pen goes for about £3, so this selection is good value.
It has a nice mix of colours-to me it feels like a sort of autumn/sunset theme. The colours in the set are:
-Cold Grey IV 233
-Scarlet Red 118
-Dark Chrome Yellow 109
This is different to the product description on other websites-the colours I got match the ones shown in product photos, so it must be the description of a different set, so be careful.
They're lovely pens to use, very strong vivid colours where appropriate (like yellow) and completely waterproof once dry, though they can smear/discolour if you go over black or darker colours. The brush tip can be a bit difficult to make thin lines with, but it's not really an appropriate nib for that in the first place. If you're careful it will keep its shape for a long time.
They lose a star because: I already had a deep red, and compared it to the one I got in this pack. There was quite a noticeable difference in colour between the two, though I forgot to take a photo-so be careful and test your colours before using, especially if finishing off something!
They are good for small-scale sketching and combining with watercolour, etc., and with broader marker pens; versatile all-rounder drawing tools.
I've found them reliable and therefore recommendable – quite well-priced for a pack of 4 different sizes.
The only down side is i like using a mix of pen and pencils, when using a rubber on the pencils I found this faded the pen.
The nibs easily maintain their shape and make it a pleasure to use them as they act more like a paint brush than a felt tip. It is therefore just as easy to use just the end of the nib and fill in small spaces of colour as it is when filling in larger sections using cross-hatching techniques etc.
It's also easy to get rid of black ink from them after use with fine line drawing pens e.g. Uniball fine liners. It just takes a few strokes on paper to get rid of the ink.
The brown colour is inbetween brown and red. All other colours are more like what you'd expect and just like the outer sleeve colours on the pens.
I will be looking to get some more in this range as it really is a pleasure to use them.
The only reason I give these 4 stars rather than 5 is that they are quite expensive.
The colour of these pens is a bit less red than in the picture, more orange. Still a nice colour, useful to add tones to sepia drawing or writing notes.
I can't recommend these brand of pens enough, although you might want to try the sepia pens for a more natural looking drawing, but to add some fun colour to your sketches try these!
