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.
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.
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 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!
As soon as they arrived, I made a little colour chart divided into warms and colds, giving the name of each pen, eg cold VI, IV, III (same for warms) and put swatches beneath the names. This helps me to find the correct shade of grey I need at any particular time. I keep this in the plastic pouch the pens come in.
If I want to go over the picture with a watercolour wash, once the ink is dry, it's waterproof as it's indian ink.
