Great for Learning Brush Lettering!

5.0 out of 5.0 by NAbbasi on March 3, 2016
I’ve just recently started to teach myself brush lettering and these pens are great for that! I started off getting the Tombow Dual Brush Pen Art Markers, Primary, 10-Pack but was having a hard time trying to adjust to holding the grip while also remembering to do thin upstrokes and hard downstrokes because of their very soft brush marker tip. I thought I would get something for brush lettering that had more of a pen-like feel so that I could get the motion down, and that’s when I came across the Tombow Fudenosuke pens.
Now if you haven’t used these before, I would highly, highly recommend getting this pack of both the hard and soft nib! At first, I was leaning towards getting the hard nib pen but after reading several reviews, the opinions on hard vs. soft were everywhere making me unsure whether or not I was getting the right product for what I needed. I’m really glad I decided to go with this pack because now after having them for a while I can definitely say I prefer the soft tip! It just requires such minimal effort to get fine strokes and hard strokes.
Both pens feature great pointed nibs that excel at writing the finest lines with light pressure and fabulous, bold lines with hard pressure. The difference between them is hard to explain. For brush lettering, I think if you have a tendency to write harder and with more pressure in general, you’ll like the hard tip. If you tend to write with lighter pressure like I do, the soft nib is the way to go! The soft tip isn’t too spongy so you can control it around your curves and gives great buttery, bold strokes without needing to exert too much pressure. The hard tip is a little more stiff and I find that if you don’t differentiate between light and hard pressure it’s easy to just write with consistent line width.
The hard tip is the dark blue pen with the green Japanese symbol on it and the soft tip is a very dark green pen with the light blue Japanese symbol on it. Both pens have black, watercolor ink. I’ve attached a picture showing how they differ in writing!

I studied graphic design and am an artist with a love for illustration, hand written typefaces and calligraphy. I decided to try some new brush pens and I narrowed it down to these 2 options: the Tombow Fudenosuke and the Pentel Sign Pen. At first, I loved the sign pen for its smoothness and slightly thicker line delivery. Both deliver the blackest black and have great fluid output. But I spilled some water one day and my typeface doodles with the Pentel oozed all over the page and my Tombow doodles stayed perfectly color-fast. That made my decision easy. I attached an image showing the difference between the tomboy soft and the pentel, then in a subsequent image I swiped across each with a wet brush. You can see the Tombow doesn't looked touched and the Pentel is smeared and dark. Tombow all the way. I need my final product to be color-fast and of premium quality for my clients. I love both the hard and soft and generally use both in one design. I can't say I prefer one over the other since I use each one for different kinds of lines and lettering. The hard type does offer more control, so for beginners it would be a good one to start with until you get the hang of it. Excellent product! Will buy again!
Great products, great price, great purchase yall!

Love these pens!! I just recently got into brush calligraphy and heard this brand was the best. I saw all the positive reviews and decided it was worth the $6 to try them. OMG they are fantastic! They are easy to use (if you can get the hang of going light on the upstroke and harder on the downstroke!) They write well and they got here just when they said they would. Honestly I don't know that you can do better than this, everything about this purchase was absolutely worth it. I will be using them again and I hope this helps another person interested in this product!
Amazing Feeling, Great Quality!

5.0 out of 5.0 by ArtistGuitarist on July 17, 2017
There honestly isn't any competition when it comes to brush pens. These two Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pens are all you need for calligraphy and illustration.

The hard tip pen is blue and the soft tip pen is green. I use both for calligraphy, but I prefer the soft tip for darker/heavier lines and the hard tip for thinner, delicate lines. Either way, you need a steady hand and control over pressure to get good quality lines. Both pens give you good control, but overall I prefer the soft tip more.

Both pens feel great when you use them. The lines are dark and do not bleed easily, and it makes you feel just THAT much more professional. I highly recommend these pens, and I will probably buy another set after mine run out of ink!
Great way to try both pens and see what works for you

I am new to brush script lettering so I purchased this to try out. I have tried several other pens as well and these are the only ones that I can use to make the lettering (no doubt due to inexperience). So for the nobles to brush script lettering, these are a great place to start.

Every one is different but so far I prefer the hard brush to the soft brush. This may change as I gain experience but For now I have more control with the hard brush. I have had these one day and am already making decent progress with lettering. I watched several YouTube vids for these brushes, which was helpful.

One star off because, new, out of the package, these pens are writing on the dry side. I am not sure how long they will last. I wish they were refillable.

Be sure to get the "Fudenosuke" pens, they are not the same as fude pens. The model numbers for these are WS-BS 150 (soft) and WS-BH 150 (hard). Everything else on the pens and packages are in Japanese, so this is the way to tell them apart. The soft pen is all black, the hard pen is a very dark blue that almost looks black. It would be nice if there were some English translation, even if it were on an insert. No stars off for this, just a wish.

Don't judge me for my lettering, this was just after one day. I hope to improve!
Great for beginners like me!

I recommend these pens to anyone who is learning how to do hand lettering/Calligraphy. The tips are not too flexible so less frustrating doing thin to thick strokes. (Tips: hold the pen at an angle and have page horizontal) Once you get the hang of it then try the Tombows Dual Brush Pens,very flexible.
The ink flow is well controlled and writes smooth. No problems with bleeding through paper. I don't know much about different types of pens yet, but yes one is soft tip and the other hard. Great pens overall :) Delivery on time and packaging is not in English. Hope the pictures help!

These pens are the best!

Many of the artists that I follow also use these pens for their artwork, and I have to agree with them for their function and quality. So far, I've been using them for calligraphy and hand-lettering, and I'm impressed. You can switch from thin to thick strokes with these depending on how much pressure you use which I think is absolutely perfect for letter designing! Of course, you can also use these pens to draw and do some lining, which they also do work well for. The ink flow is great and smooth too, and also very fluid.
Tombow brush pens are my absolutely favorite. Whether you're newer to the brush pen calligraphy ...

Tombow brush pens are my absolutely favorite. Whether you're newer to the brush pen calligraphy or an expert, these pens won't disappoint. Well pigmented, solid brush and super easy to use. Highly recommend them to anyone wanting to try a brush pen :) just remember: light strokes going up and heavy going down.
Awesome Brush Pens

5.0 out of 5.0 by Lina on July 16, 2015
Awesome brush pens, they were exactly what I was looking for. Would highly recommend the value set because there is a noticeable difference in the soft/hard tip and I personally recommend them both to try out for yourself.

Yes the ink in these do not last that long but I don't think that takes away from the worth of these pens. I'd repurchase them in a heartbeat and I have. A tip to to help save ink and save the tips of your pen and just a general statement - use smooth paper as much as you can and the paper won't absorb as much of the ink.
