When I did my Cult Pens Mini Haul back in April, I threw a couple of brush pens in my basket with the intention of trying them out. 5 months later and I’m finally getting around to it!
One of the pens I chose is the Zebra Fude Pen Brush, which was a very reasonable £2.42 from Cult Pens. I chose it in a fine nib. Here’s an idea of the line width variation:
Like all brush pens, you can achieve a wider line by pushing down harder on the nib. Compared to some other brush pens, the nib is quite stumpy… It’s less brush like, more sign pen like, which I think I actually find easier to control.
And most importantly, how does it write? I don’t have much experience with brush pens so I can’t really rate it against others, but I do really like using this pen. The nib can take quite a lot of pushing around with out breaking or splitting – which is good because I’ve been practicing brush lettering a lot with it! And the ink flows out of it nicely, just the right wetness.
