I’m not an artist. I use these because quite simply, they are my favorite writing utensil. The ink flows very free, it’s consistent and smooth. There are no stutters, there are no areas that turn into blobs. The ink dries quickly when I use it on greeting cards. The quality of my writing changes from paper types. There are times a fine tip pen seems to barely scratch the surface, pun intended, and one with a thicker point gives me the results I need. Having the variety of options in this set gives me exactly what I need. They’re lightweight, but with a quality, sturdy feel. Comfortable to hold. I am left handed and these work excellent at any angle. Highly recommend.
