    These are Microns that I have used for years, and they are definitely some of the best pens you can get for basic outline drawing, especially considering the price.

    Great pens, although two had leaky tips shortly after I got them. |
    Verified Purchase

    For the price vs quantity of this great pen type, it is well worth purchasing. However, shortly after I got mine I noticed that two of my pens had leaky tips. I don't know if they were that way when I first got them or simply became that way within the first two weeks I traveled with them, but I would still recommend this product either way. You are still getting your money's worth.

    they were pretty leaky |
    Verified Purchase

    the pens, they are my favorite for drawing for sure. there seemed to be something wrong with this package, however; most of the pens were leaking ink. it wasn't a huge deal but i was traveling so i would find ink inconveniently leaking on my things.

    Great pens but they just don't last very long |
    Verified Purchase

    I've been drawing and producing fine art pieces since I was young and I've had plenty of experience with professional drawing pens. This is a great set of pens for beginners and even intermediate artists. If you're advanced and draw/use pen and ink a lot then I would suggest a more expensive set that has more ink. These pens are great, don't misunderstand. They have varying degrees of thickness but the differences are so small, they're almost all the same size on paper. These are better suited for writing or calligraphy or scrap booking more so than fine art. They work just as well but the ink is not meant to be used every single day OR to be used for coloring. Half of the set has ended up in our desk drawer for writing notes and whatnot.

    Be gentle |
    Verified Purchase

    This felt tip pens have a great fine point, but they won't hold up to much pressure. Be careful or you'll split the tip before the end of the pens natural life. I like these for their precise fine print. I think they improve my penmanship quite a bit, as I have to be more careful while writing with them.

    These have been my favorite brand of archival ink pens for many, many years; I've repurchased them three times now! They are a very rich, dark black that don't leave streaks or any sort of gloss. Perfect for lining watercolor paintings, as they are waterproof! Truly a must-have for any type of artist. The different pen tip sizes make using these all the more enjoyable.

    fine set of pens. |
    Verified Purchase

    I never realized how important the tip of a pen was till I got this set. the range is perfect especially if you make an occasional mistake, and who doesn't! the ink flows consistently, however you can't stay in one place more than a sec, or it bleeds and creates inconsistencies in the drawings that are not supposed to. I guess you could try to slow at the same point in each subsequent pattern to do just that. great set.

    Great archival quality pens |
    Verified Purchase

    I love these pens, and have been using them for several years. Having experimented with multiple types of pens along the way, these are certainly my favorites. The tips are firm, ink flows smoothly without bleeding, making precision easy. I use these for Zentangles, stippling, mandalas, and other similar art forms. No issues with them at all. The only reason I gave them a four star rating here was the price point. I now get them from Jerry's Artorama where they come twelve to a box, and are much less expensive per piece. Great pens.

    Verified Purchase

    I love these pens for doodling and Zentagling* (Registered Trade Mark) They write very smoothly. They are also great for outlining. They come in a wide variety of Nib sizes for the finest detail to the boldest lines. Though I have found they don't do well over large painted or gessoed areas. It ruins the nibs. I once got a pack were 3 of the pens seemed to explode and leaked ink everywhere, I wrote Sakura and they replaced the pens for free.

    Love this set of fine quality pens! |
    United StatesVerified Purchase

    I couldn't have made a better choice when I returned to drawing (later adding watercolors*).[ *Note--these never blur or run when you paint over them, and dry almost instantly.] This Sakura 30062 6-Piece Pigma Micron Ink Pens is a perfect set, for my needs at least, as they are sized so that you can go from "finest" to "less fine" with perfect accuracy. Don't buy them of you are looking for thick pens. The word" Micron" is there for a reason! When I was growiing up, I used a Rapidograph for my pen and ink drawings. Although I still consider Rapidograph a great way to draw, these pens have never "skipped" on me nor have the tips worn down nor have they let me down in any way. The black ink is rich and beautiful. I love them! Try them next time you want a dependable tool for your art work. It is essential to be able to count on your implements and these are incredibly good pens at a good price. thanks, jean

    I use these pens primarily for taking notes and I find that they are fluid and comfortable. The size is pretty perfect for me, and I like having a selection of different micron tips. I can't speak to their use for art, but the ink that comes out of these is vibrant and I have little doubt the claims to its archival qualities are indeed accurate.

    Have used these pens before and had zero problems. But this pen set seems to be defective. I can't get pen 01 02 or 05 to write at all. Tried to contact amazon to replace these pens but it is like jumping through flaming hoops to find any contact email addresses on here. Waste of money!

    We love the Sakura 30062 6-Piece Pigma Micron Ink Pen Set, Black. For anyone who draws these pens are familiar to them. It is really great how dark the ink is with these pens, another great feature is no running or bleeding through. The high quality ink is really nice because it is water-proof. With two artists in the house who love to do graphics, these pens are a must! We love the Sakura 30062 6-Piece Pigma Micron Ink Pen Set, Black. We would buy it again, and would recommend it to others!

    Verified Purchase

    I am in love with these Micron pens. I use them mostly for Zentangle, but they work really well for outlining and embellishing my watercolor paintings too! This is the second set I've bought because I really go through them. I like the variety of tips, from very fine to bold. I tried them with acrylic paint, but they tend to pick up the paint if I don't feather the tips. I learn as I go! I must see if they come in other colors too, because I'd love to do some colored outlines for my Zentangles.

    Great for Drawing or Note Taking |
    Verified Purchase

    Great pens for sketching! I was not sure what to expect, but I am very satisfied after having used the products. These pens are great for drawing or for taking notes! In physics or general science classes, these come in handy because of how precise the pens are. The '005' is one of the most precise pens I have ever used, which means that I can fit twice as much (or more) on my note cards! I would recommend these pens if you are interested in drawing, diagramming, sketching, or looking for precision.

    Verified Purchase

    Ok, so I would like to say that they are awesome but the truth is that I never got to try them all, I just got back to drawing recently and this is the first time I get pens for inking. When I opened the package I tried them all and they were great, awesome for the price, but two weeks later when I actually tried to draw with them 2 of 5 had dried out. Did I do something wrong? I kept them in a cool place in a pencil case, on horizontal position. I don't know the 3 of them that still work are great.

    2 pens dried up after 30 minutes of use |

    Wish I had the same experience s everyone else here who rated 5 stars. I do love the pens and enjoyed using them for Zentangle, however, 2 of the pens dried up and ran out of ink after about 30 to 45 minutes of use. These were the finest tipped pens - which are the ones I need to use most. I placed a replacement request with Amazon, so I hope the next batch works well. I have purchased 3 additional sets as gifts - If the other sets have the same issue or have NO issue, I will update my review to reflect that.

    I received these pens for Christmas. And I've been using them to Zentangle with. Over all, they are a GREAT pen. I love how dark the ink is and the points are just awesome. Although, when I was traveling, I stored the pens in my suitcase, and for some reason, they are now leaking from the tip. I don't know why, buy the pens are just covered with ink--precious ink. This is a real bummer. I just don't understand?!? But other than that issue, I couldn't be happier with them!

    Great pens |
    Verified Purchase

    These are the closest I can find to high quality drawing pens. I've tried the Sharpie pens but the tips break down too quickly, as do the Prismacolor pens. Apparently the only equal to Microns are the Copic pens, but I'm not about to spend 3x as much on those as I did these. My only qualm is that the tips on these can get bent easily (You can't help it with the fine tips, but it happens even with the thicker tips), when you accidentally brush the pen backwards over the paper, or accidentally apply too much pressure.

    Quality illustration pens. |
    Verified Purchase

    The clamshell packaging acts as a case to bring your pens wherever you go and have them all in order. I really like the thinnest of the pens (005) to get in those fine details and lining. The ink is dark black and doesn't smear or fade. I have used watercolor over it and the ink didn't mess up at all. It doesn't bleed through the other side of the paper, even when I colored in parts a deep black. These are excellent pens that I would recommend to any illustrators or anyone who just likes working with pen and ink.

    Leaky ink, pens do not function well even on their first use. |
    Verified Purchase

    I received these pens yesterday, I have spent the last hour using them for a picture that required fine ink lines, and in that hour the 005, the 02 and the 03 have stopped working, and ink is leaking out of the tip of the 005 so badly that it is unusable, as none of the ink is actually coming out of the tip. Considering how lightly these pens have been used in the hour that I have been using them, they are absolutely not worth the price, or the hassle of cleaning leaked ink off of everything, including the now ruined art piece.

    I use these pens for Bullet Journaling. Honestly, I wasn't sure I'd need all the different pieces in this set. I mean, how much difference could there actually be? Right? But, after having this set for several months, I'm happy to report my addiction. The range provided in this one set of pens fills all my needs. They don't smudge or ghost in my Monsieur Dotted Notebook. They only bleed through if I use them for filling things in--which I don't typically do. They write SO smooth and flawlessly. I'm in love.

    Great archival quality pens |
    Verified Purchase

    I love these pens, and have been using them for several years. Having experimented with multiple types of pens along the way, these are certainly my favorites. The tips are firm, ink flows smoothly without bleeding, making precision easy. I use these for Zentangles, stippling, mandalas, and other similar art forms. No issues with them at all. The only reason I gave them a four star rating here was the price point. I now get them from Jerry's Artorama where they come twelve to a box, and are much less expensive per piece. Great pens.

    Verified Purchase

    I've opened the 3rd pack of the 4 packs of these pens and haven't found any to be dry. I use them for Zen Tangle and that type of drawing, they work great, only seem to smear if you wipe over the ink immediately after making a line, so in normal drawing it hasn't been a problem at all. I bought these from amazon because of the great price on this specific set of pens, 30062 6-piece Pigma Micron. Amazon's price was better then using a 40% off coupon at the craft store. I ordered the last 3 packs all at once so I could get the free shipping.

    I bought these for a friend as a gift, as she loves to draw and do zentagle. This is a really nice set of pens with a good range of the line sizes that allow you to achieve a lot when you are working in smaller areas (such as when you do Zentangle) The nibs have worn well and there have been no issues with them being a little rough on paper (which can be the case with very narrow nibs as they scratch) and the pigment seems to be consistent even when being used for shading This is a good value set and I would happily buy them again

    These were exactly what I was looking for...great price and free shipping made this a must have for me! I love to draw and I love fine line pens and that is exactly what these are..a set of different sized fine line pens in black ink. They do not bleed and no matter how heavy a hand you have (like me) the tips do not soften, that means they won't feather all over when you are drawing intricate designs. I love LOVE love these pens!!! If you are on the fence about ordering I suggest getting them NOW! Do not hesitate...they are perfect for Zentangle artists.

    I did not order these from amazon but I got them from my college bookstore. I got the one with only three of them, but they're the same brand and type. Anyways, these are great pens! I wanted to get started in ink drawings and learning how to crosshatch so I bought these. The ink is beautiful and does not bleed! I don't use a lot of pressure when I draw and I've yet to see the tips bend or warp. They draw well on fairly thick sketchbook paper and 110lb watercolor paper. I have absolutely no complaints about it thus far and I would definitely recommend these pens!

    I currently am going to school for Art at the University of Oregon and I can say that without a doubt, these are some of my favorite pens. This pen set is usually twice the price that it was marked at for the holiday sale pricing. I am so happy that I was able to snatch up a pack of them for less than $10. The pens flow for so long, and the fine tips rarely run down. I adore these and I always feel heartbroken as soon as one runs out. These definitely have a low-smudge ratio. Just give it a minute to dry and you'll be set with a wonderful outlining tool. :)

    I had purchased a set of Sakura Pigma Micron pens with an assortment of sizes in black and LOVED the 005 size (0.25 mm line width). Then I saw the Sakura 6-piece Pigma Micron Set of assorted colors. YAY!! Now that I have them, I'm a bit disappointed. The nib of the red pen broke off. It may be that I misused it. I was drawing a pen line on a straight edge and the motion of pulling quickly across the page like slicing a pizza may have been the problem. Too much pressure on too much slant. So... I'll be more careful from now on. You have been warned ;)

    These are great pens if you're an artist or designer. I use them specifically in my drawing for inking purposes, but they would be great in lettering as well. With the various tips available, you can ink image to create depth easily and I never have to worry about smudging or running ink. I tend to use these specifically for graphic novels or for larger printed paintings. I have used these with watercolor paint, and have not had an issue with running ink. These pens have also been known to last long amounts of time. This is the second time I have bought this product and still love them.

    Simply put; You will love these pens if you are an artist. These are not note-taking pens, however. These are really good basics for people who are starting out in inking comics and manga or just to make cool designs. Treat these pens nicely even if they aren't the most expensive ones on the market. They do their job so do yours. I have never had a problem with leaking or smearing. I still buy these pens because they are cheap and do what I want them to do. I run out of the smaller ones quickly because I draw with a lot of detail. All and all, good buy! Recommend to artists who want to try out ink!

    These are my favorite pens for clean, dark lines. I do alot of comic book oriented art, and concept art, and these are the best. I usually sketch with a regular mechanical pencil, or blue lead pencil, or even highlighters (yellow) and then ink over with these and either erase my lines, or scan the image so the highlighter color doesn't show. As far as shipping, I ordered the item and I had it that evening. 12 hours after the order was placed in the morning, a black mustang GT arrived and delivered my package. The price was great. So, quick shipping, great product. What more can you want?

    I've always loved drawing with technical pens, and even have a set of 7 Rapidograph pens by Koh-i-noor. However, they require regular maintenance to keep them clean and working properly. Therefore, I've been thoroughly enjoying my new set of Micron pens. I get the same variation in line thicknesses and the archival quality, without the fussiness of the Rapidograph. In addition, they are much less expensive and practical for traveling. Yes, I know I'll have to dispose of them when they dry up, but I've had to do the same with a couple of my Rapidograph pens when I don't get to clean them on time.

    I specifically purchased these to write on a Matted Frame for an Anniversary Gift. I looked at few other places for Sakura Pens or alike but the price here was simply unbeatable. This particular package comes with 6 different nib sizes all the way from .005 to .08. I bought the black ink due to its versatility. The quality of the pens are very well made and at least the one I bought didn't bleed or mess up. The package was also boxed and mailed securely without affecting the product. I would highly recommend this pen for any artwork or if you're looking for something durable to write with.

    Unbelievable that you can get a set like this for under $10 these days, I remember paying nearly that per-pen for a comparable set of Rapidographs. I've used these and the Uni-Ball "Uni Pin" fineliners and I can't really pick a favorite - these are considerably cheaper as of this writing, but I find the Uni Pins to be more compact and pocket-friendly, so I tend to bring those with me when I go out and leave these by the desk at home. Highly recommended for technical drawing, cartooning, or just idle sketching. Keep 'em away from the young'uns though, the tips can bend and leak if used with too much force.

    but I'd say that they easily lasted three times more than these guys |
    Verified Purchase

    The 03.mm ink leaked, although that might have been a special case, the ink overall lasts very little. I had a set of Staedtler pigment liners and gave them the same use, but I'd say that they easily lasted three times more than these guys. The ink quality is good, but if you draw over pencil lines and eventually have to erase those lines (like I do), the black will fade much more than the ink of a Staedtler or Faber Castell pen, therefore, you have to use more ink. Overall a decent pen, but I think in the end the Staedtler pigment liners are worth the extra $2 as they will last much longer.

    Its a great pen for beginners. The ink is great and tips write fairly smooth but can be inconsistent at times. I did have two of these leak on me and the paint on the body of the pen and the cap indicating the size is chipping off, which is annoying and displeasing to the eye: but not really a big deal. So basically it has a decent build with some durability issues, the ink is of great quality, and the writing is decent. Again if your experimenting with pens and looking at felt/porous pens, these are good to start with. Also, take a look at the copic multiliner sp's if you have the money; im currently using those.

    This set has taken my detail work to another level. I can now be more precise and not have things looking like a hack tracing job. In stamping sometimes it happens that you don't press down firm enough or image just didn't get the sharp imprint you wanted. On some artwork I like to retrace the outlines to make the image look sharper. Or with the lettering, sometimes it just doesn't come out the way I want it. Well now with this set, I can go over anything without it looking like a child did the work. Touching up the eyes, small details in hair or other lines your want to bring out is easy with Sakura Micron Ink.

    I got this set for $9 on amazon lol. They sell these for $22 in craft stores(ex. michaels / hobby lobby). Please save your money and buy them here because they are the exact same quality for much cheaper. I use these to outline my work all the time. Its water proof after 15 minutes. I use water color and washed down acrylics over these and the ink never runs around my paper. But you HAVE to let it dry before working with liquid over it or it'll smear. I made that mistake once and it ruined my art. These are very fine tipped and perfect for small details. Like absolutely perfect. I carry these around in my pencil case for school and I love using them.

I have a friend who is majoring in design and all her sketches, blueprints, and various other work are done with these pens. If you need more proof, I have a friend who is an art teacher and she is obsessed with the pens as well, she actually has done some great zentangle work with them. See for yourself!

    These were the very first inking pens I ever got, and I was shocked by how well they worked. First off, they come in a variety of sizes, from the fairly thick .05 to the deliciously thin .005. It offers a nice range of line widths for artwork and a must-have for comic art. (And be sure to get the Brush Pen, the pen that acts like a mini-paintbrush!) The peeve I have about Sakura Micron is that the tip of the .005 is a bit fragile and liable to bend, but considering how tiny it is, you sort of expect that. Overall, a good pen whose sizes and alternate colors really make them stand out, but you have to be careful with the points, especially .005.

    Smoothest Pen Ever |
    Verified Purchase

    I've searched through many brands of pen to find one with a smooth ink, super black that sits on top of the paper and doesn't leak through, dries quickly. The pen itself is exactly the right width and has perfect balance. These pens fit my requirements exactly! Doesn't leak through thin journal paper either or tear it with too much ink. These pens are perfect for hand-lettering, doodling, and average writing. My favorite sizes are 08 and 01. I absolutely recommend these pens as the best on the market. Better than the Sharpie Pens, because of the width of their pens (too narrow for me.) Better than Faber-Castell artist pens because they don't soak the paper with ink.

    Great pens used for nearly everything |
    0

    These are a standard pen in my kit. I use these for nearly everything related to drawing. I use these in my self-made planner, different sizes for different outlines or headers. The price is very reasonable for the amount of use I get from the Pigma Microns. This set works well for pen artists, journalists, and people that like felt-tip pens but don't love the cheapness and bleeding of them. While I'm enamoured with these pens, I dislike that the smaller nibs tend to slip down into the holder and disappear. I'm hard on pens and pencils and require non-dainty forms of ink holders. Despite that, I still love these until I ruin them, then buy a new replacement.

    Verified Purchase

    This pen ink set does its job! It works great! No smears, no mess. The ink dires up quickly without any smears on any type of paper. I think its great for drawing and for taking notes although its not really for taking notes. There were some occasions were I had to use them as such and they work just as great. However, there are some instances where the ink can smear, for example, when using copic markers while the ink is still wet and with watercolors as well. It all depends on the size of the pen you use and how much you use it. Other than that, I had no problems with them. I enjoy using these ink pens. I highly recmmend them to anyone looking for drawing ink pens.

    the quality of each pen is stellar but when I tested out each one three of them seemed like they were the same nin size even though the pen barrel says not. that being said I only did a rudimentary test so nothing comprehensive. They do have a quality feel to them. And I would purchase again but maybe separately. I kinda wish they had come in a plastic holder. I would purchase again. and Ill update on the nib sizes when I do more sketching. Honestly it might be that the three are just close in size and my eyes dont notice the difference as well as someone else might. Pens feel good in the hand too.

    Great quality pens, product labeling could improve |
    Verified Purchase

    Excellent ink, excellent pens. Ink and tips are still going strong after 1.5 years of moderate to high use (I do illustrations and architectural renderings/sketches fairly regularly). The only complaint I have is that the labels on the pens scratch off more easily as time progresses, and once the label scratches off, it'll be incredibly difficult distinguishing one pen from another before you pop off the cap. If you keep the pens in a case or bag where they move around, the label will scratch off bit by bit. I switch between line weights frequently in any given drawing, so knowing which pen to reach for is important. Perhaps an embossed label would resolve this issue.

It offers a nice range of line widths for artwork and a must-have for comic art. (And be sure to get the Brush Pen, the pen that acts like a mini-paintbrush!) The peeve I have about Sakura Micron is that the tip of the .005 is a bit fragile and liable to bend, but considering how tiny it is, you sort of expect that. Overall, a good pen whose sizes and alternate colors really make them stand out, but you have to be careful with the points, especially .005.

    Perfect for Bible Journaling |
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased these for the purpose of Bible Journaling. I love the fact that they're waterproof/smudgeproof. I use them quite a bit and not just for journaling. I do not have a steady enough hand to use the finest tip - which is .005... it's TINY! When I saw it, it reminded me of when you used to see people that would write on grains of rice and they made them into necklaces. I may still find a use for the smallest one, but it's patiently waiting in the drawer for now. These pens have lasted me about 6 months now, and even the ones I use the heaviest are still very dark and seem like they're going to last much longer. I am pleased with the purchase and would definitely make it again.

    Very professional pens! |
    0

    I use these for laboratory reports and documents that may be used for publishing one day. I have to say, it is the best INK you could get! My only caution is that the tips can be very FRAGILE! Especially when you get down to the 005 and 01 sizes, above that I have not had any problems. I have a heavy hand when writing but I really like how fine it is and how neat I can be. I notice after some abuse and carelessness, the 005 tip turns into a 01 tip from being flattened. I would say 03 is the best for everyday writing, 01 is nice for important documents and neatness, and 005 is for fine detailing in drawings and small notes, or if you want to be super neat like me (yea, a little overkill but I can't get enough of it!).

    I like these pens |
    Verified Purchase

    I like these pens, they are exactly what I expected and perform pretty well. Unfortunately, when the package arrived one of the pens (05) was already low (to almost gone) of ink and another that was lesser used (03) ran out of ink long before some of the others in heavy rotation. I am not a professional by any means and just use them for doodling and, to a lesser extent, note taking; so these are the standard pen that people are directed to when they just get into hand lettering and other writing crafts. I think that they're good, but for someone who is more serious about the arts I imagine them to be a kind of starting point; it's hard to define with my limited experience with other pens, though.

    Good variety of pens for text, sketching, and details |
    Verified Purchase

    I'm a designer and needed good quality pens for wireframe sketches and sketchnotes during meetings. I picked up these to keep on my desk at work and liked them so much that I recently bought another set to keep at home. I appreciate the versatility of these pens. I can choose the larger tip and make quick bold sketches or headlines and come back with a smaller pen for details and text notes. I like to grab a few when sketching so that I can vary the look of my drawings and diagrams. The one downside is that on the pens I use the most, the labels eventually wear off. It's not a huge deal, but I expect it will be annoying when all the labels wear off and I can no longer tell the pens apart easily.

    Just amazing |
    0

    I have had these pens for more over 3 months and i have to say they work perfectly they do exactly what the description says, I use them to outline my drawings like most people and they come in so handy. you can outline a drawing with these and wait at least 30 seconds, then erase all the pencil lines and your drawing/sketch will come out extremely neat(as long as you have steady hands). I just love how the pens don't smudge AT ALL when you use an eraser on top of the ink.These are a must buy. I'm not the greatest artist but i'm pretty good and lets just say every time I use these my classmates think it came right out of a comic book.I would say that these pens are pretty professional(despite the really cheap price).

    Perfect Pens for Scripture Marking and Hand Lettering |
    Verified Purchase

    I use these pens for two things: #1 Making notes in the margins of my LDS Scriptures (which have very thin--almost translucent--pages). The micron pens have a perfect sized tip (005) for writing tiny notes next to important scriptures. PLUS, they never bleed through! Ever! #2 Hand lettering projects. I always write in pencil then hand letter over the pencil using all the sizes (005-08). The Micron pens never bleed, never fade, and never smear. I also never let my kids use these pens for their projects. My Micron pens stay in a little box on my night stand. I never use the pens for writing to do lists or sketching doodles. They are very nice pens and I want to make sure they last a long time.

    Twain would, Flavor Flav would not |
    0

    Many of the other reviewers have mentioned that these pens are perfect for sketching; however, I have found that they are the best writing instruments for taking notes in books. Especially books with thin pages. My pen of choice has a tip of .005. No matter the delicacy of the page, the ink never bleeds through. Also, I tend to have messy handwriting but the Micron Pen forces precision. If you struggle with poor handwriting this pen might be what you need to improve. The multiplicity of colors in this set allows you to create a labeling system for notes inside the text. These pens are not intended for rapid note taking as they are not especially durable. Also the ink does not last very long before running out.

    Great for Zentangle. Possible leak issues if you get them by air freight. |
    Verified Purchase

    Stocking stuffer for my wife, she does zentangle and it's the only pen she will use. She is also a professional draftsman, and knows about this stuff. Some people have complained about them leaking. Apparently, there is a vent and seal arrangement for the ink, and it doesn't like sudden changes in air pressure. I don't know, I got bored, and looked into this and have a little theory: If you order these with Amazon Prime, there is a good chance they will take a ride in a cargo plane. Cargo planes are pressurized but not to the degree that passenger planes are. I could see this being an issue. Fortunately, mine shipped ground because a warehouse was close by. But I think I will ship these ground from now on, just in case I'm right.

    Really nice, clear, fine lines, but they dont write on CD/DVD/BD disks |
    Verified Purchase

    These are the first pens of this type I have used (that is to say, precise micro-tip archival ink.) I really like them, and the way they make a super-clear, fine line allowing for highly legible but very tiny writing. However, one warning for potential buyers - they dont work on CDs/DVDs that are not inkjet printable. I actually ordered this specifically to write on CD-R's that I was burning because I wanted an archival ink and a fine line. When writing on CDs/DVDs, the ink does not stick. It wipes right off even if allowed to dry thoroughly. They *do* write (very nicely) on DVDs that have an inkjet printable surface. So, I'm not actually able to use them for the purpose for which I bought them, but, I really like writing with them anyway :-)

    Amazing pens! |
    0

    I'm completely in love with these pens. When I got into drawing, I started with the copic multiliners and was a little disappointed in how quickly they would dry out or the nibs would bend/break. I was discouraged from buying pens similar but decided to give these a try after reading some reviews and watching youtube videos. I'm so happy I did, they are nothing short of amazing. I bought this pack and have been drawing like a maniac for about a month, and they all still feel like the day I opened them. I use the 005 and 01 the most, so I bought them individually at a local art store. I still haven't opened them though, since this pack is still going strong. I wont be buying any other kind from now on. Also, they don't bleed through on any paper I've used.

    Great pens but they just don't last very long |
    0

    I've been drawing and producing fine art pieces since I was young and I've had plenty of experience with professional drawing pens. This is a great set of pens for beginners and even intermediate artists. If you're advanced and draw/use pen and ink a lot then I would suggest a more expensive set that has more ink. These pens are great, don't misunderstand. They have varying degrees of thickness but the differences are so small, they're almost all the same size on paper. These are better suited for writing or calligraphy or scrap booking more so than fine art. They work just as well but the ink is not meant to be used every single day OR to be used for coloring. Half of the set has ended up in our desk drawer for writing notes and whatnot.

    I'm pretty so/so about these pens |
    Verified Purchase

    I'm pretty so/so about these pens. I personally love drawing, so having ink pens that work well would help a ton. But, once I ordered and started using the pens, I found that they aren't all that they claim to be. It says "no smears on most papers". When I'm drawing or writing, I almost always see smears, which messes up whatever I'm working on. Also, it states that there is smooth writing, but I can't get smooth writing unless I press down hard enough. I don't want to have to press down hard because I don't want to ruin the nib or use more ink than necessary. Writing should be free flowing and easy, not rough and jagged. One other thing I don't like is the cost. Even though the list price is $17.39, $10.16 is quite a bit for pens that don't satisfy my needs.

    Precision and Variety |
    0

    These are fabulous, high-quality pens. They afford the artist all the precision he or she needs, with incredibly fine tips. The wide variety lets you tailor your tool to the work, or even figure out the best line weight as you go. That's a real benefit for beginning artists still figuring out some preferred styles. And the price I paid was really unbeatable, both compared with other stores and with smaller-quantity packs. Do use these with care. They run out after extended use, and don't last as long as you might anticipate. Hence, I felt it necessary to take off a star from my rating. I find these much more disposable than typical pens, which seem to last forever. If you're concerned about longevity, use cheap tools at the sketching stage and then employ these on more sophisticated and finished works.

    Great for Writing Use as Well! |
    Verified Purchase

    So, my mom always has kept a journal, but now when she goes to read some of the journals she has written 30+ years ago, some of the ink is blurry and faded or in one case, damaged the paper it was written on! Now that I am starting to get into keeping a dairy, I want to make sure that that doesn't happen to me! To this aim, I purchased the 6 piece ink pen set for journaling, since they are archival quality pens and hopefully will not fade over time if I ever want to go back and read what I wrote! I know most of my artist friends love these pens and swear by them for inking line art, but I can happily report that they write very nicely as well, and don't bleed through my paper like some other pens I have tried. I know these are a little more spendy than your average writing pen packs, but the experience is worth it!

    I will never be without these pens again. Absolutley perfect for art and Bible journaling! |
    Verified Purchase

    I started doing Bible and art journaling recently. I quickly discovered that a good set of pens are going to be worth their weight! I am not a gifted artist and often find that tracing out images is my best bet. In order to do that, I really needed a good set of pens. I could not be more pleased with this set of pens from Sakura. There are six pens in the set and they go from very fine point to a nice, thick point. When tracing or outlinging, I find these pens to be almost irreplaceable! They are so smooth. They almost hug the lines I am trying to trace or outline. Another great feature for me is that they do not bleed through my pages. When working in a Bible, the pages can be very thin. With these Micron pens, I don't have to worry about my work bleeding through. I will NEVER be without these pens. Ever! They are almost flawless!

    These are really good. |
    Verified Purchase

    These are really good. If there is one small disadvantage, they tend to be smeared by alcohol based markers if you draw over them, especially if you apply a lot of layers like I do. They don't do so as badly as a sharpie pen, but the Copic multiliner eliminates that problem ( the drawback of the Copic multiliner is that it tends to damage some papers if you go over and over the same area.) I would still recommend these over them because they balance out to be about of equal quality, and these are less expensive. The other thing I noticed is that these are a slightly warmer black. Just bear that in mind when you use it with other colors, Most black markers are a cooler black, so they don't quite match if you draw outlines with these, and then use larger markers to fill in the outlines, or if you're trying to get sharp edges on wider lines.

    Archival on paper and wood only |
    Verified Purchase

    Many gardeners have a difficult time finding a labeling solution that will stand up to sun and rain for an entire growing season. I researched and found people were experiencing the best success with archival pens such as these. However, even though they are touted as archival, it does not mean that the ink will hold up on any surface. In the description, it warned against using the ink on fabrics you are going to wash. I assumed they would be stable, waterproof and not smear on other surfaces. I tried three different plastic labels with surfaces shiny to matte. All of them smeared. Even after I let the writing dry for a day.. So I goggled these pens. Something I should have done PRIOR to buying. It turns out they are made for smooth wood and paper only. So I got some tongue depressors and the ink seems to be holding up very well on wood.

    Life Saver. My new "standard" drawing pens. |
    Verified Purchase

    I do renderings for a living, and typically use graphite pencil or Prismacolor markers. When I needed my Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph pens for a series of renderings for a client, I was shocked that 2 of them no longer worked (and I have been VERY diligent about cleaning them). Anyway...I ordered these Microns based on the good reviews. They are excellent, especially if you need to draw on vellum (which makes excellent copies). I noticed that on this Micron .005 pen if you draw very delicately you can get a line similar to some of the thin rapidograph points...not QUITE as miraculous as those famous (and famously expensive) pens, obviously, but for this price I'd say they performed very well indeed. I'm ordering a couple sets of these...and I'm secretly happy that I don't have to stand at the sink and wash ink out of them for 30 minutes.

    I mostly heard about these from deviantart artists. After all, the best reviews come from the actual artists who draw and put them up for viewing : ) And you know what they look like too after using the pens. Anyways, I got these, very quick delievery, as I am Canadian, so thank you. As for the quality which I'm sure is the most important part - they are beyond excellent as expected. They are indeed smudge-free. I gave it a good 5-8 seconds before I applied my prismacolors on them and the ink was intact. I'm pretty sure you will be waiting more than 5 seconds before applying your copic or felts on top. The different tip radius are great. I find myself already using the finnest tip for small details. They look great. The price is very well worth it. What are you waiting for, give them a try :)

    I really like these pens. I originally bought them for drawing Zentangles but now I'm also using them for writing, and I just purchased another set in colors. I even got myself a pencil/pen case so that I can carry them around with me everywhere. They write so smoothly, especially on the pages of a Moleskin. I've been looking for the perfect editing pen (I often have to proof/edit marketing copy) and I think one of the colored pens will be perfect. You need something that's fine enough that your edits will be legible, something that won't bleed, something that writes smoothly, something that will stand out so you can actually see the edits and make corrections. These pens are so nice to use that I look forward to writing and drawing with them on a daily basis. A little neurotic, I know, but those with an affinity for writing implements and office supplies will understand.

    Verified Purchase

    I bought one Sakura micron a year ago at my local bookstore as they were recommended for underlining books, and I was surprised at the quality they were! Of course, I had to buy this set on Amazon and am very satisfied with the results. The set has different sizes allowing you to sample each size and see how they work. I use it mainly for drawing and like using the 005 for details. I like how quickly it dries because of the odd way I write. I tend to put a lot of pressure and my hand is on the paper half the time. It has decreased the amount of black marks on my hand by a lot, and has removed my fear from writing notes with pen without turning into a lot of smudges. The black set is also strong enough in appearance to "pop-up" in anything I use it on. When I receive compliments about my work having this printer appearance, I give credit to this pen. I could probably get much nicer pens, but with my budget now, Sakura microns are for me!

    Disappointed. Prefer the Copic brand Fineliners... |
    Verified Purchase

    Disapponted. I also use the extra-Fineliner pens to do Zentangle. Had been using the array of Micron fineliner and brush pens (mostly black). After trying the Copic color pen/markers and reading the positive reviews for Copic fineliner pens, I tried those and found them to be if much higher quality. There is no comparison -- lines are finer, blacker (and they STAY BLACK, no fading into surface.) The Micron pens don't smudge or smear, nor does the color bleed into the paper, but on certain surfaces (TYVEC in particular) the color begins to FADE INTO THE SURFACE (most notably on the TYVEC paper surface.) Tried to show the difference in the attached photos. I drew these designs yesterday on a blank TYVEC surface (a wallet "blank"). The lighter, faded lines were drawn less than 24 hours ago with the Micron. The dark black lines and spaces were "re-drawn" over using Copic black fineliner and brush pens -- MUCH BETTER!

    Fantastic for Writing and Doodling |
    Verified Purchase

    When I found out these pens online, I’d recently become interested in experimenting with freehand lettering and fonts. I was turned on to Micron by way of a video I found online of a person drawing beautiful comic-book exclamations and the like – so I checked Amazon and this set of 6 was incredibly reasonably priced (totaling to $9.54 at the time). Now, I certainly didn’t inherent this random guy’s talent with my personal set of Microns, but drawing with them is a really fantastic experience on all counts. Also notable, they are really great for the sort of precise detailing lettering demands. For example, when I take notes in class (college student), my page tends to evolve into an elaborate mess of sketches, doodles, diagrams, etc. With these pens, I can doodle in one line width and write in another, keeping everything separate, etc. If you like to enjoy the experience of writing and drawing, I highly recommend you give these pens a try.

    Waterproof, fade resistant and dries fast |
    Verified Purchase

    When I researched Bible journaling ideas, these pens were recommended so I purchased a set. They arrived well-packaged inside an easy-to-open plastic sleeve. Included are six pens in these sizes: .20mm .25mm .30mm .35mm .45mm .50mm My first observation is that the pens are not erasable like the FriXion pens I normally use. My second observation is the sharp edge of the pens and a few times I did notice indentations in the Bible pages beneath my journaling. One method to keep the pens from tearing or indenting multiple pages might be to use a thin cardboard beneath the page you are journaling. Because I keep my Bible on my lap when reading, I'll occasionally notice my underlines are uneven. When this happens I like using the erase feature on the FriXion pens. My daughter is an artist and these fine point pens are perfect for her designs! For Bible study I prefer a softer edge and erasable feature.

    Disappointed and surprised - ultra fine point Microns do not perform |
    Verified Purchase

    I like the ultra fine point and that they ink is supposed to be special such that it does not bleed (I've not tested this closely). The first couple of days these seems to write ok but quickly they begin to write inconsistently. They drop ink smoothly then stop they start. I find I'm retracing a lot. It is just not smooth and I don't have confidence in it. I've now tested some 10 of these and from difference orders and packages. They are all the same. The ultra fine points just do not deliver. The medium+ points write better than their ultra fines but in that class there are a lot of pens that write better. I'm rather surprised in that I had heard these were "the pens" for drafting, note taking in my Bible or books, annotations, etc. I literally and sitting here now with the Micron01 pen and, as i write across the page, it is only dropping ink about 70% of the time at normal writing speed. I have to slow way down and still it does not do the job.

    CONTAGIOUS Last week I finally discovered what was wrong with me. I was having difficulty sleeping and my waking hours were filled with visions of undulating strings. My mail had come earlier in the day, and I received two packages with prescriptions of how often to use the contents and not to worry if one took an overdose. I was overjoyed with the selection of Strathmore artist tiles of various shapes, colors, textures and sizes in one of the containers. The other packet contained the free flowing Sakura of America micron pens that my friends were using on a daily basis. Now I could capture those undulating strings on my Strathmore tiles with the myriad assortment of the Sakura archival ink pens. My affliction finally had a name "Zentangle." My ability to focus is awesome and I no longer toss and turn each night. I awake fresh and ready to take on each new patterning challenge. Many thanks to Strathmore Paper Company and Sakura Pen Company. You are just what the doctor ordered.

    Not waterproof |

    These pens are good for drawing, but in my experience they are not waterproof. I tried to use them with watercolors in my journals. If I drew first, then added watercolor, they bled and smudged. Using them after I did a page wash was fine as long as everything was very dry. As an artist in creative flow, I can't live with that. I draw first, then paint. There can be no smudges. So, now I use them only for drawing without watercolor. Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens are the only truly waterproof pens I've found. That being said, they're still great pens, and I use them for pretty much everything else. I bought this set to replace the ones that have run out. Edited to add: I've read some of the reviews, and I wanted to add some thoughts I have on the pens drying out and nibs breaking. I made a lot of mistakes until I learned better.

Edited to add: I've read some of the reviews, and I wanted to add some thoughts I have on the pens drying out and nibs breaking. I made a lot of mistakes until I learned better.

    This is not a toy. |
    0

    This is not a toy meant for children. This is a professional pen meant for professional artists. The tips of these pens are very fine - in this case, a fifth of a millimeter wide. That is sharp enough to break the skin easily, and if you jab yourself with these, it leaves an ink spot under your skin, somewhat like a tatoo. The tips, being so fine, are also delicate, and vulnerable to being chipped or broken if they're dropped. If you have an intelligent, artistic child who takes care of their art supplies, this may well be a great gift for them, that will serve those artistic tendencies well. This IS an excellent pen that some professional artists and cartoonists will sing praises for. However a careless child, or one who's just drawing things on the wall with crayons, or who is rough with their toys could very easily jab themselves with one of these, or break them and at best impair the ink flow. At worst, it could cause an inky spill of waterproof, non-washable, fast-drying ink.

    These pens are absolutely fantastic! I had originally been turned on to these pens when I had come across an article showing that these Sakura pens had the best chemical, heat, and moisture resistance. Found here: [] Ink stability is tantamount in a notebook for company or personal use. I can write with confidence knowing that my writing won't smear or fade and possibly lead me in a touchy legal situation. I also really like the fact that the caps STAY on the opposite ends when writing, unlike some pens which don't positively lock on and fall off, eventually being lost. My only gripe is that I'm often afraid of bending the tips of the smaller diameter pens. I use these pens at work in labs to document my findings and observations, as well as to draw any intellectual property that may be used in legal disputes.

    the perfect feel for drawing or writing |
    0

    the fiber points of these pens are just rough enough to give the user a sense of the texture of the paper. it's a bit like going back to a standard transmission after years of driving an automatic. the inks themselves are, like some modern poetry, marvellously opaque. images drawn with them scan and copy beautifully. the very smallest sizes (.05 and .1) tend to break down with rough use, but even the slightly crushed tips give a useful line on paper. used for writing, they encourage a light grip that makes for less fatigue and there's even something pleasant about a cap that has to be removed and replaced. --Lynn Hoffman, author of THE NEW SHORT COURSE IN WINE and the forthcoming novel bang BANG from Kunati Books.

    Nice pens, but zero longevity |
    Verified Purchase

    I bought these about a year ago. For the first two months, they were really nice. Nice black ink, no bleeding, good handling. They got a lot of great reviews and, for the first 2 months of use, they deserved them. I didn't use them very often - maybe once a week or less in those months. However, I began to use the pens more frequently and one by one each pen broke, after irregular usage. Some of the pens, especially the ones with fine nibs, just flat out broke. The 005 and 01, specifically. Most of the pens leaked ink into the caps, drying them out and making a mess. I lost my 05, 08, and 03 to that. The only one I have left is 02 and it started to run dry after the four month mark. These pens are great if you forsee yourself using them only for a bit -- otherwise, they have no longevity and will not last. My friends have these pens and they lasted them. I was really disappointed having to throw the pieces of this set out one by one. I suppose Amazon just sent me a bad batch. I don't know if I want to risk trying them again, as it seems that the pens I received were very shoddy.

    Good, GREAT, but ink runs out quickly |
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased a 2-Pack of these pens after finishing the Prismacolor fine-line marker pens. Delivery was quick, and arrived only a day after the minimum delivery date. Since I've heard that a lot of people use these pens, I figured that they were good, maybe even excellent quality. I read the reviews for this product to make sure I wasn't buying anything less than what I expected, and all the reviews said that these pens are worth buying and are superb, great, etc. And so, I did. They were a good price and a popular brand, so why not? They serve their purposes and I like them very much. However, I feel that after using them a few times, I feel as if the ink is already starting to run out. And I havent had these for very long, let me assure you. Instead of holding it at the normal position with a relaxed hand, I have to hold it so that the very top of the tip touches the paper. Only then does ink come out. Now, I do definitely recommend these pens to anyone to likes to draw or write (I used them for both, but mostly for drawing), but I strongly recommend buying the 2-Pack set. Do buy these pens, they'll do you good.

    Drying Out |
    Verified Purchase

    Just to start off, I love these pens. They have a great rich black ink that doesn't fade from eraser use. The ink lays on very well, and stays where I put it, it won't run or bleed. And Copic markers don't cause it to run either, which is very important to me as they are my most used form of color. I have had problems however with the nibs not breaking, but fraying. Has anyone else had this problem? it's irritating because now my lines have a shadow! I would use the Copic multiliner because it's nib is replaceable, but I have the issue with the color fading after I erase my pencil sketches. Not a huge problem, but if I have to go over the lines again, I almost invariable ruin the line work. I've also had a problem with the pens running dry very quickly. This is kind a frustration as the pens are fairly expensive by themselves. Am I storing them wrong? I keep the lids on and store them in a plastic box with my markers and pencils. But, then they just die suddenly one day. I love the pens so much though that I'll keep buying. Is this some kind of evil marketing ploy? Maybe someone can help me find a even better pen.

    If you are an artist who does a lot of pen work you will know that the Micron pens are not top of the line. That being said, I do love these pens. They are archival quality and generally have a lot of life to them. If I am not using a rapiograph or other type of pen, these are my 'go to' pens. If I do some mixed media and I lose one of the pens, it's an acceptable loss. You don't have to spend $10+ to replace the lost/damaged pen. I enjoy the way the ink flows and it doesn't hurt when I grip these pens. I have always felt that the quality of this pen exceeds what I pay for and I enjoy using these so much I use them for many projects and purchase/replenish my pen count with these, despite the fact that I have the 'higher end' pens. If you are interested in doing pen work and don't know what pens to try out, I recommend these. They come in different sizes for this set so you can get a feel for the pen tip size(s) that suits you. If you're new to pen work, remember to get something with archival ink-- they are designed to last longer and resist fading as opposed to your everyday black pen or fine point Sharpies.

    Verified Purchase

    The first time I bought these was a couple of years ago after seeing a video of someone using them. I decided to buy this set, and it was AWESOME. It was kind of cool because at that time, they said my art almost looked as if I had printed it out - very smooth color. With the different sizes, it was easy to fill in wider space and make line variations. The 005 pen is my favorite - great for detailing. I bought another set recently after the others had all run low and I even used these pens for writing notes at school (I always use 03 for that, tee hee). These pens do not bleed through most paper! I had written on paper and turned it to the other side to see NOTHING. (The newer set that I bought, however, did not do this as much as it had back in 2011. :c) There is only one small, minor complaint, and it's more of my fault than anything else. When you buy these pens... Store them properly. Whenever I tend to put these in my bag or backpack, I guess the movement makes then pen run dry or something, but they won't write good after the damage is done. It's happened twice now, so I guess I need to learn. >< Overall, I recommend these.

    Absolutely essential for any serious comic or manga artist. If you've been using basic ballpoint pens to ink your work, do yourself a favor and purchase a set of Pigma Microns before your next project. First off, the sizes are fantastic. The .005 is my favorite, and a pen I simply couldn't work without. The line detail you can achieve with such a fine point is incredibly useful for hatching, hair and intricate eye work. The .01 and .03 are excellent for inking comics, and when used effectively with the .05 can really give the illusion of crow quill line variance. The ink itself is high quality. It has a rich dark color and flows consistently from the tip. It dries quickly and once set is very difficult to smear. I regularly color my work with watercolor, and this ink holds up well against both brush and wash. My only complaint is that sometimes the tips get a bit mashed after heavy use, and the smaller sizes sometimes get pressed all the way down to the metal. Considering the affordability of the set, it's a minor gripe. I made the mistake of using standard ballpoints to ink my work for years, but these pens are truly superior tools loaded with superior ink.

    Great pens for drawing, scrapbooking, journaling, or regular writing |
    Verified Purchase

    These are fantastic pens. They are comparable to the Zig Millennium pens and write very smoothly with little to no catch on most paper. I use these (& the Zigs) daily for regular writing as well as drawing and journaling in a huge variety of notebooks: Moleskine (ruled, graph, dotted, plain, sketchbook), Leuchtturm1917, Field Notes, Miquelrius (graph), & Picadilly, as well as many cheapo brands from big box stores. They dry fairly quickly, but it's not instantaneous. Some other inks, markers, and highlighters can make the ink run if it hasn't had a chance to properly dry; Pigmacolors brush pens are particularly bad about making them run in my experience, on both heavy and regular weighted paper. This set comes with 6 different sizes but not all the sizes are equal to the sizes of the Zig system. Sometimes pens in the set have an annoying rattle that comes from the ink cartridge hitting the sides of the pen. I haven't opened up the offending pens to fix it, but it's a minor annoyance for me; your mileage may vary. (Side note: this has never happened to me with the Zig pens in 12 years of usage.) Overall, these are great pens and I do recommend them for anyone who does watercolors, scrapbooking, journaling, doodling, mixed media, portraiture...you get the idea.

    Great for Beginners (old art pics included) |
    Verified Purchase

    I've been using these in combination with watercolors for a few years and I've never had a problem with them! I initially got them to do lineart for cutesy anime/manga drawings (i'll add some examples lol); I'm pretty sure a lot of people go through this phase haha The ink is pretty dark and very permanent (my old artwork doesn't seem to have faded). Drying time isn't long at all, I can usually erase my under sketch in 30 seconds without any smudging (but wait longer to be safe, I forget sometimes). I really loved these as a beginner because I liked the separate pen nib sizes for drawing different things. The smallest size pen was great for details, but you also want to be super careful with the smaller tips (and really just all of them) not to press to hard or you'll damage it. I usually reach for nib/brush pens nowadays whenever I do line work because I prefer more dynamic lines, but I always keep some microns on hand for detail work and because they're super convenient to carry around. Some people say that they dry out pretty quickly, but they last pretty long in my opinion. They labeling rubs off over time which can be a pain when you want to grab a specific nib size, but it's no big deal. But I really recommend these, even though I don't use them as much! It's something I always have laying around :)

    It's like they make me sketch/draw better |
    Verified Purchase

    I had gotten pens from Sakura before, the Manga Sensei ones or whatever they are called, and these seem to have a better feel. I see many people complaining about the tip, but I personally love it. It's like these magically make me sketch and draw better, I'm not sure what it is. I love the feel of these pens! But if you are a bit hard on your pens, the tips might break. These really are fragile, but I sketch lightly with pencil all the time, so these should be okay. If they were fragile MARKERS (that's where I am abrasive lol) I'd have an issue, but no issues here. I just realized I've been reading the numbers wrong. When I saw 005 and 01, I thought that was the size lol. It's actually a number that corresponds to the measurement. Such as... 005 - .20mm 01 - .25mm 02 - .30mm 03 - .35mm 05 - .45mm 08 - .50mm (lol) I see a difference between some, and some I don't. The first two, I do see a difference, despite it just being .05mm more. Though 02 and 03 look the same to me despite a change. Oh well. I wrote that little chart thing incase anyone else was confused. These pens are perfect for outlining and details! edit : And I was looking at some comic drawings and Whilce Portacio and Jim Lee, very well known comic book artists for Marvel, use these pens. I think that says something.

    The Good The Sakura pen set is a great tool for ... |
    Verified Purchase

    The Sakura 30062 6-piece pigma micron ink pen set is a set of pens that come with different Nib sizes for a precise width. The Nib sizes are #005 (0.20mm), #01 (0.25mm), #02 (0.30mm), #03 (0.35mm), #05 (0.45mm), and #08 (0.50mm). The Good The Sakura pen set is a great tool for all artists or writers, the lines are precise and exact. The Sakura pen set is easy to carry and store. The Sakura pens contain ink that does not bleed over time, ink that bleeds usually leaves long lines of faded ink going down the page if the environment contains any moisture. Ink that does not bleed would not destroy pieces of art or literature years after it has been created. The Sakura pens are made of a different type of plastic that is used for normal pens, the plastic of the Sakura pens prevent the hand from sliding on the pen due to moisture on the hands. The Sakura pens are long lasting and have a great amount of ink within them. The pens can last anywhere between a four months to a year, depending on the amount the pens are used. The Bad The Sakura pens cannot be refilled with ink. At the point where the pen runs out of ink, the user would need to purchase new pens. Purchasing new Sakura pens can be quite expensive. The price of the pens can be high. The price of the Sakura 30062 6-piece pigma micron ink pen set is $10.25 for 6 pens. The price for the standard 20 piece Bic pens can be found for fall less than $10.25 at any local market. The smaller nibs, such as #005 and #01, are soft and thin. The soft and thin nibs can be easily broken, if there is a lot of pressure put on the pens. Once the nib is broken the amount of ink released would increase and the precision of the pen would not be as accurate. The Sakura pens contain the same ink so design choices requiring different ink, such as an ink splatter effect, would require a new pair of pens that consist of different ink, but the same quality of ink. Overall The Sakura 30062 6-piece pigma micron ink pen set is great investment. The Sakura pen set is extremely precise and exact. Every customer deserves the best and should have the best tools to achieve their dream. All customers who purchase this product would be satisfied.

    Do not bleed, strong nibs. If I go over oil pastels or watercolors, naturally, they won't draw very well until I pop the nib over and over a couple of times on a piece of scrap paper to get the pastel or watercolor off the nib, then it draws perfect again. I like that they are archival.

I like these for their precise fine print. I think they improve my penmanship quite a bit, as I have to be more careful while writing with them.

    Verified Purchase

    I didn't realize the pens were all going to be different widths, which was kind of a bummer. Also, I dried out one of the pens in a single writing session which made me wonder if these pens are for writing or for something else (my wife suggested making signing homemade quilts). Lastly, the caps often fall off the rear of the pen when writing.

    Great for Architects and Interior Designers |

    As an Interior Designer, we were required to purchase the rapidograph pens in school but by my third and fourth year I don't even know what happened to those - they blotched and caused havoc. The Micron pens are the only ones I use - they are great and last a while. This set is a good range to start with and never bleeds. Highly recommended!!

    SAKURA PIGMA MICRON PENS |

    The pens I received did not work well at all. They appeared to dry out quickly. I used for less than two weeks and found the pens to be of no use to me. Decided that the cost to return to receive refund was not worth the effort. Bad experience for me. Do not recommend that you buy this over the internet. Best to go to your local Office store to see if they have sample of pens for you to try before you make a purchase.

    Well for the price compared to what microns cost in store this is fantastic. I would reccomend repeated buys. Though all microns come with the treaded issues off nibs running out or drying up, because of the price tag its no longer a giant money dip. No more dreading the trip to the art store and wondering if you can eat for the week. Its cheap and easy to buy another pack.

    I enjoy a nice pen |
    Verified Purchase

    I first used a Sakura pen in an art class and so enjoyed the tactile pleasure of it. This set has different point sizes. I find that when I need to write something, perhaps just to address an envelope, I go to the trouble of digging for a Sakura Micron for the sheer pleasure of it. I was told in that art class that these pens should be stored flat, not in the typical pencil cup.

    I use these for signing photographs--often the .01 or .02 for the smallest prints, .03 for larger. Inexpensive enough it's nice to have the whole set, pigmented ink is archival enough for my fine-art work. A little care is needed in this application to get an angle that works on glossy/luster prints. Not much else to say, they are in some sense "just pens", but they work well for my purpose.

    DRIED OUT PENS |

    The pens were worthless because they were dried out (there was no ink in the cartridges). I could not return them because the return deadline passed (my fault). I will immediately check any art item containing liquid such as pens, markers, paint, etc. I usually keep a large inventory of such items because I use many mediums. Supplies have never dried out when I have bought retail from local art stores.

    I had used pens just like these back in my highschool art class and loved them. They're perfect for lining my artwork and simply sketching. They don't bleed and are great for making clean lines, especially for the traditional artwork I've been doing lately. The smaller sizes are great for detail. The only problem I had was with the 005 pen, the thinnest of the pens. You just have to make sure not to press too hard when using it or it will bend and possibly ruin the pen.

    These pens are excellent. I use them for labelling my insect collection, and in my laboratory notebook, both of which require good quality ink that won't fade over time and won't be shifted by alcohols. This pack is great if you want a range of line-thicknesses for different purposes - the 0.1 and 0.05 sizes are great for writing very small - but beware, if your writing pressure is too hard with the 0.05, you will eventually wear down the tip to where it's non-usable.

    Verified Purchase

    The pens are exactly what I expected. They're great for drawing and also writing since they don't smear or bleed. The caps are very tight and snap shut. The ink always flows evenly and creates clean lines; there is no frustration with skipping or dried out pens. The variety of sizes is also very useful and its a great value, cheaper than at my local art supplies store (Hobby Lobby). The price fluctuates regularly. As of 1.1.2014, the price is $9.18, which is almost half off retail. Definitely worth it!

    These are amazing. Various tip width to help draw the perfect lines. I never have to go back over a line because of the pen "skipping" or just because I didn't get the right width desired. I use them to finish out my sketches (generally on 90lb drawing paper...but have used on watercolor and textured papers as well) and they always deliver a smooth, controlled amount of ink without any change of angle or messing with the pen at all. I've found a new pen to be loyal to...you will not be disappointed in these!

    A long time ago I read in a Quilting magazine that you can write on fabric with these pens and the ink will not bleed. It's true. I bought them for writing Quilt labels. There are 6 different sizes in the pack, from extremely fine to normal. I don't know what the tips are made of but they certainly seem sturdier than regular pen tips, I expect them to last for the duration of the ink with careful use. Apparently the ink is also fade resistant, I cannot speak to that as only time will tell but I have confidence in this product.

    It's probably just my personal quirk, but I have used these Sakura Micron markers for years, and I have never found any other brand that comes close to delivering the same smooth, fluid lines and incredibly long-lasting ink supply. This set was a really good deal, I don't remember exactly what I paid but it was in the neighborhood of $8 for the set, which would normally retail for around $16. The tips hold up to all kinds of vigorous drawing, and the ink soaks into paper fibers and dries instantly so it's pretty rare that you get any smears.

    These pens are perfect for Zen tangle drawings. I discovered the pens after purchasing books describing the basics of Zen Tangle :composition, building patterns, shading, etc..

    I've used these pens for Zentangle for the last year, and they are truly amazing. The ink always goes on smooth and vibrant. The price may seem a bit high for just six pens, but trust me, every pen is well spent!They last forever, and I honestly have no complaints about these micron pens! I would not buy another brand. The assortment of sizes is also ideal for this type of art, allowing me to get finer details with the smallest pens. This alone has led to a great improvement in my pieces. I'd recommend these for anyone, from someone new to art to a well-seasoned illustrator.

    I fell in love with these pens for inking my illustrations, but that faded quickly once I realized they didn't even last me a week. I did two small hand lettering illustrations and before I could even finish the second one I noticed they were drying out. THREE of the six pens completely dead before half way through my third drawing. The ink quality is great while they last. Really solid, crisp lines that don't bleed. Still searching for a pen with the same line quality that will actually be worth the money. Micron.. figure out a way to increase the longevity or make refills, please!

    Don't Ever Use on Pre-painted Background Pages! |
    Verified Purchase

    I bought these for a Visual Journaling class. These particular pens were suggested. Our assignment was to paint page backgrounds and then do Zentangling, Doodling, and Lettering on the painted pages. I used high quality watercolors and acrylic paints. The painted pages were dry. However, when I used these pens on top of the painted pages (these were brand new pens!) they stopped writing immediately. I tried everything to get them writing again, but it was no use. They wouldn't write on plain paper either, even when I cleaned the tip. So, for $8, I have 3 pens that write. Very disappointed.

After waiting for it to dry i even tested it out with my ciao copic markers and it is indeed waterproof with no smudges. Since i'm left handed as i write or line the ink does smudge but then again things always smudge with me. I would definitely be buying this product again when i run out.s!

Hand me my geek sign. I know. Lol There is zero smudging. Zero smearing. I have a tendency to bear down and not always have the most gentle touch. These Sakura pens take my torture without the slightest problem. As I've said, I've used for hours and only one has possibly begun getting low on ink but as I said, I've used these pens a ton. I am beyond pleased I purchased these pens and will most definitely keep them in my inventory. Love these!

    These are pretty great pens. They don't smear (awesome especially since I am a lefty!!). They are archival quality. They last a really long time before they run out of ink. I can go in and on about Microns, I've used them for years in my pen and ink artwork. These only reason I can give them a full five stars is because the tips of the pens are very fragile. Over the years I've had some split completely off. Some split in hairs. Sometimes this creates a cool effects. Sometimes, this has caused the pen to leak. These pens are still better than 99% of the pens out there. Just don't push down hard on the tips.

    Quick to dry out |

    I have used Microns for years. Recently, I have gotten super fed up with how quickly they dry out. The whole time that I have used Microns, I have noticed this. But since they are so highly acclaimed and do provide some of the best pen line work, I put up with it. But having tested other competing pens, I have noticed that not only do they not dry out nearly as quickly BUT the tips do not bend, like Microns are famous for. I would recommend exploring your options and seeing what other pens are out there that provide the same quality and don't dry out as fast. I did, and I am much happier when working with my pens.

    These are a standard pen in my kit. I use these for nearly everything related to drawing. I use these in my self-made planner, different sizes for different outlines or headers. The price is very reasonable for the amount of use I get from the Pigma Microns. This set works well for pen artists, journalists, and people that like felt-tip pens but don't love the cheapness and bleeding of them. While I'm enamoured with these pens, I dislike that the smaller nibs tend to slip down into the holder and disappear. I'm hard on pens and pencils and require non-dainty forms of ink holders. Despite that, I still love these until I ruin them, then buy a new replacement.

    I think I'm in love. |
    Verified Purchase

    I never thought I would fall in love with an inanimate object, especially a pen, but I have. These pens have changed my style of drawing all together. The different point sizes can give you anywhere from the finest detailing lines to broad, defining outlines. Because they're archival ink, the ink won't run if exposed to water. However, be sure to let the ink dry before attempting to erase over it, I've found that if you don't give it about a minute to set, the ink will smudge. Other than that, the ink is a very professional looking black matte, so it won't leave you with the sheen that a sharpie will give you. I recommend these pens for any beginning or experienced illustrator.

    Many of the other reviewers have mentioned that these pens are perfect for sketching; however, I have found that they are the best writing instruments for taking notes in books. Especially books with thin pages. My pen of choice has a tip of .005. No matter the delicacy of the page, the ink never bleeds through. Also, I tend to have messy handwriting but the Micron Pen forces precision. If you struggle with poor handwriting this pen might be what you need to improve. The multiplicity of colors in this set allows you to create a labeling system for notes inside the text. These pens are not intended for rapid note taking as they are not especially durable. Also the ink does not last very long before running out.

    Verified Purchase

    I've been drawing and producing fine art pieces since I was young and I've had plenty of experience with professional drawing pens. This is a great set of pens for beginners and even intermediate artists. If you're advanced and draw/use pen and ink a lot then I would suggest a more expensive set that has more ink. These pens are great, don't misunderstand. They have varying degrees of thickness but the differences are so small, they're almost all the same size on paper. These are better suited for writing or calligraphy or scrap booking more so than fine art. They work just as well but the ink is not meant to be used every single day OR to be used for coloring. Half of the set has ended up in our desk drawer for writing notes and whatnot.

    Verified Purchase

    If you 'write' in your books | Bible, then I recommend these pens. They do not bleed through the pages like 'ordinary' pens and come in many different colors and thicknesses. I was first introduced to these pens many years ago when we owned a Christian book store and have used them (not the same one - they do run out of ink :D) for all aspects of writing. If you write on items that require a duplicate via impression then these will not work (e.g. duplicate checks). My favorite is 01 for a very fine writing tool. They never seem to bleed, run, or distort. I have text I wrote nearly 20 years ago with these pens that still look as if I wrote it yesterday. I have tried many other pens over the years but always come back to the Sakura Mikron.

    They write so smoothly! I even think they'll even improve handwriting (mine did). I only use them to doodle and ink, as I'm too cheap to shell out ten bucks on pens, but they're definitely worth it. The thickness of the pens range from super thin to bold, you've got your 005, 01, and 02, which are like loki, black widow and hawkeye, and you've got your 03, 05 and 08, which are like captain america, thor and the hulk. (Ironman's like between 02 and 03 I would say). They're very versatile and are a great pack for doodlers and writers alike. One mishap is that some ink leaked out of the 08 pen, it wasn't a lot, it just got on the side of the pen but has only happened once, could be because i carry them in my backpack all day, eh, i'm willingly to overlook it,

    Disappointed Artist |
    Verified Purchase

    I expected a lot from these pens since they were recommended by many people who practice Zentangle. I did not find these pens to be reliable. Some of the pens did not write the first time I tried them and still do not write, some would be usable for a short while and appear to run out of ink, the 8 is the only pen that is usable out of the whole pack. I did not use undue pressure when writing/drawing with these pens nor did I use them on surfaces that were not appropriate. I have purchased many, many art products and have never been this frustrated and disappointed before. After trying to use them many times, I finally just went to WalMart and purchased some pens and I have had no trouble with this brand. I will not purchase them again and do not recommend them.

    Great Utensil for Outlining! |
    Verified Purchase

    If you draw frequently like me, you probably either haven't found the right utensil to use for outlining or have a hard time deciding which is better to use. I used to use a fine tip marker, which worked but had a strong chance of bleeding through my paper or running. These do not do that and are a tremendous assist. They come in a few different sizes making them perfect for drawings that need precision, they dry quickly and reduce the chance of smudging drastically because of that. They tips are rather sensitive, so not much force is needed, using too much force will actually damage them and cause your lining to be horrible, so keep that in mind. Again, these are perfect for getting the best results from your pictures, allowing for tremendous accuracy and detailing.

    These are the best pens I have ever used in my life. I cannot imagine writing / drawing / illustrating without them. The line produced by each size is true to its description and never falters. They write so smoothly it is almost hard to believe that the pen is even touching the paper! The colors don't run or bleed and look sharp. I currently have every size of this pen in every color available with a back-up pack of blacks just in case. The ability to change the diameter of what you are writing makes the process much more engaging and dynamic. These pens are of great quality and truly are made to write beautifully. They only negative I can think of is that if the cap is left off for too long, the pen becomes unusable. But that is due to human error, otherwise, the ink lasts for a very long time!

    Precision and Variety |
    Verified Purchase

    These are fabulous, high-quality pens. They afford the artist all the precision he or she needs, with incredibly fine tips. The wide variety lets you tailor your tool to the work, or even figure out the best line weight as you go. That's a real benefit for beginning artists still figuring out some preferred styles. And the price I paid was really unbeatable, both compared with other stores and with smaller-quantity packs. Do use these with care. They run out after extended use, and don't last as long as you might anticipate. Hence, I felt it necessary to take off a star from my rating. I find these much more disposable than typical pens, which seem to last forever. If you're concerned about longevity, use cheap tools at the sketching stage and then employ these on more sophisticated and finished works.

    Great for Notes and Writing in Margins |
    Verified Purchase

    My wife and I love these fine tip pens. They can by and far be used in place of ballpoints, and often have a more pleasant writing experience. I hate how ballpoints sometimes get stuck, or won't write on certain surfaces. These pens don't have that problem. Anyhow, this package is great, it has a vast array of sizes, with the width marked on top in millimeters, which makes it really practical to find the appropriate size for the job. I also like that the pens use archival ink, so the ink is waterproof and doesn't fade easily. By and far I use these for writing, underlining, and note-taking on books, so I can't say how great they are for other uses, such as drawing. Anyhow, if you're looking for a great pen set for note-taking, and writing comments in books, look no further! These are perfect for such uses!

    I've tried really hard to like these markers but the effects of their likeness is fading on me. I like the fact that they are varying tip sizes which helps for more detail however I do have a few dislikes. The markers don't go on as thick and vibrant as a sharpie (which was my go to marker prior to this). They tend to dry up as I use them too which leads to ruined artwork after I go over the same spot 4 or 5 times to get an effect I should have had the first time. My final complaint with these markers is that they fade if you run an eraser over it. I tend to draw some things first in pencil then go over it in these markers followed my erasing the pencil marks. These markers fade dramatically when that is done and I then have to go over it again. All in all, the theory of these markers was great but I'm really disappointed that I spent the money on something new rather than sticking with my beloved sharpies.

    Verified Purchase

    I bought this SAKURA 30062 SIX-PIECE PIGMA MICRON INK PEN SET based on the preponderantly glowing reviews here at Amazon, and the fact that they are the biggest-selling pens of their kind. The majority are right! So I'll try to make this short. The six pens are graduated in roughly equal increments from one-fifth a millimeter (0.20 mm) tip size up to half a millimeter (0.50 mm), or American "fine point" for writing, slightly larger than the European norm. They work well for plain old writing as well as sketching, and the ink is supposed to be of archival quality when applied to acid-free paper. For what you get, they're surprisingly cheap. One tip: the caps to each pen show each tip width according to code and not actual size (for example, no. 05 represents .45 millimeter), so hold onto the package they came in until you have the codes memorized. Now, if you want six different COLORS of pens (one of them black), but all in quarter-millimeter tip width (0.25 mm), consider the color assortment at about the same price: Sakura 30063 6-Piece Pigma Micron Assorted Colors 01 Ink Pen Set.

    I have used these pens for fifteen years, which tells you something right there. They do not have the durability of a refillable pen set, but I find the disposability a convenience. If something happens to them, I don't have to feel bad, and I never have to refill them. Their primary good feature is the ink, which is very dark, covers well, does not bleed through paper, and is waterproof and archival-quality . . . for real. It is an extremely high-quality ink, and that's why I keep buying them. I have found no better disposable pen in fifteen years. The ink flow is moderate, neither too slow nor too free. They are well-suited for both outlining and for a more scratchy cross-hatching/scumbling approach, as they aren't so free-flowing that ink will wick out of them at the slightest touch of pen to paper. Put the tip down, leave it, that's about the size of the dot you get. The ink dries quickly and does not easily smear, although on very smooth paper that absorbs slower, execute ca... Read more

    This artist's best friend, the Sakura Pigma Micron pen |
    Verified Purchase

    I've been using Sakura Micron pens since about 2007, and to be honest, I wouldn't go without them. I recently purchased Copic Multiliners, since I love their markers so much, but....no, big mistake. While the Multiliners had a clip that was non-reflective (literally the only flaw in the Micron's design, but we'll get to that later) the casing was extremely cheap and the ink bled much more readily than any Micron. I can clearly tell the difference in my line quality when I use a Copic Multiliner or a Sakura Micron. In the past I have also used ZIG Millennium pens...and while they're good, I still prefer the Microns. They last quite a long time (I can't fathom the reviews on here that say they dry up fast...what are these people using them for? Are they even being taken care of?) and have very smooth lines. Some of the finer tips can "break" if dropped (duh) or abused, but since it's a pigment ink pen and not a ballpoint, you don't have or NEED to press down on it. They also come in a large variety of colours and sizes, AND...they're pretty easy to find. I even saw them in a Lifeway Christian Store recently, which was surprising. So even if you do run out of ink rapidly, somehow...it's not difficult to replace a pen. Going back to the "only flaw of the Microns"... The clip on the cap is made of metal, not plastic. (ZIG pens are also metal, but not shiny, and Copic Multiliners have plastic clips.) The metal is very reflective, and since most artists work with a light at their desk/table...it can glare into your eyes pretty easily at first, before you get used to it. By now I make sure the cap is facing away, and it's second nature so I don't even notice I'm doing it. But it's such a tiny, insignificant thing compared to how awesome and sturdy on the outside and USEFUL these pens are. These are a staple in my life.

    Have used these pens before and had zero problems. But this pen set seems to be defective. I can't get pen 01 02 or 05 to write at all. Tried to contact amazon to replace these pens but it is like jumping through flaming hoops to find any contact email addresses on here. Waste of money!

    I bought this for a small quilting project and had never used them before. They were amazing. I used the .01 on fabric and it held a nice crisp line. I also steam ironed the pieces several times and they still didn't bleed thru the fabric or blur any lines. I will be buying the colored ones for more projects.

    Zentangle "must have" |
    0

    I'll say many of the familiar things...archival safe, doesn't bleed, waterproof. The ink is fantastic. I've used a handful of different pens doing Zentangles and this is by far my favorite. The ink is a very INTENSE black and I've not found anything else that compares other than Copic multiliner. The Pigma Microns don't bleed through any papers I've ever used (including my Bible pages) and I love the fact that they dry quickly and then won't smear since I'm working in very small spaces where my hand will be rubbing over the ink again and again. Even if my hand gets a bit sweaty, no damage done. Lots of sizes, which is a must. In a year's time the only pen I have had to replace was the 05 which eventually ran out of ink, but it was used a LOT. They are very long lasting and because of that, are worth the price because they will not have to be replaced often. I've also stored these pens standing up or lying down and it doesn't seem to ever effect how they write, so they're good for on the go, bouncing around in a bag or whatever. BE AWARE - the numbers on the pens...01,05, etc are NOT the line widths. I didn't realize this right away. 005=0.20mm, 01=0.25mm, 02=0.30mm, 03=0.35mm, 05=0.45mm, 08=0.50mm. For most people this won't matter much, the size graduates larger with the numbers and that's enough. For those that need some more diversity, The Copic Multiliners have the same intense black ink and look identical even when used in the same project with the Pigma Microns. They have several SMALLER tip sizes, a 0.05mm, 0.03mm, and a 0.1mm. and two LARGER sizes 0.5mm and 0.8mm. Between the two brands they've got every possibility covered

    I had a set of pens I neglected and left ink in for about 20 years. Recently I wanted to use them but thought they were ruined, so I ordered this set of pens.

    Microns are the best inking pens i have ever seen and the different points of lead are so good. Such as,outside outline is .5,regular lines are .35, Lines such as soft folds are .3, Facial Features are around .25, Eye lashes if you are that precise are .2, and as I am still in the process of getting use to such good inking pens but I'm sure i will find a use for the others as well. :)

    I bought these pens in December and just finally started using them this past month when my last set ran out. I was surprised to find my 02 leaking all over the place just a couple weeks after opening it. Today my 03 is doing the same thing. I've never had this happen with my Microns so I think it could be the ones Amazon is sending out. So sad though!!

    Love this set of fine quality pens! |
    Verified Purchase

    I couldn't have made a better choice when I returned to drawing (later adding watercolors*).[ *Note--these never blur or run when you paint over them, and dry almost instantly.] This Sakura 30062 6-Piece Pigma Micron Ink Pens is a perfect set, for my needs at least, as they are sized so that you can go from "finest" to "less fine" with perfect accuracy. Don't buy them of you are looking for thick pens. The word" Micron" is there for a reason! When I was growiing up, I used a Rapidograph for my pen and ink drawings. Although I still consider Rapidograph a great way to draw, these pens have never "skipped" on me nor have the tips worn down nor have they let me down in any way. The black ink is rich and beautiful. I love them! Try them next time you want a dependable tool for your art work. It is essential to be able to count on your implements and these are incredibly good pens at a good price. thanks, jean

    These were great pens, I loved to use these pens. However, two of the six dried in 2 months. The rest have lasted several months now. So, the quality is uneven, but I like to draw with these. The ink is really black and the pens' tips are tiny - great for sketching.

    Low-cost |
    Verified Purchase

    Just like the "stars" say... these pens are okay. They are inexpensive, and that's the best thing about them. For just doodling or whatever, I'll say they're just fine, but if you want to do some serious line work, I would spend the extra six bucks and go with the Staedtler Pigment Liners. Why? You can see my review of the Staedtler set on that page, so I'll just discuss the Sakura set here. First, they just feel cheaper. If you do much drawing at all, you know that some pens just feel better, more solid and more balanced, in your hand. These are not those pens. At least, they are not for me. They feel too light and flimsy. Second, they scratch. What I mean is, they make an audible sound across the paper and feel like they are scratching the surface rather than gliding over it. It sets my teeth on edge (and makes my hand and arm tense). Just not pleasant. Third, the ink just doesn't have much pop to it. The lines are light compared to the Staedtler set or my Rapidographs, and don't have the body I look for. On the other hand... they ARE cheap, so they are great for someone who just wants a set of pens that can easily be replaced if they go missing.

    I started to get back into drawing again and used these pens to ink my work. They provided a good mix of thickness. One of the things I really appreciate these pens for (and one we all take for granted) -- they did not leave bleeding or heavy ink to smudge with my big palms as I inked my drawing. I've attached a sample of my recent work where I used these pens.

    I have been using Sakura Microns for YEARS. They are 100% waterproof and very saturate. The ink is archival, without a doubt. I have tried other pens - copics, faber-castell, staedtler - and the only ones that come even close to Microns are the Staedtler ink pens. Microns are the best, and I know I will always get great results. Highly recommend, over and over!

    Getting these a 1/3 of the price on Amazon then you can at a store makes it a nice online buy. They're around $25 at Hobby Lobby. Keep in mind that they bleed when you use any kind of marker over them. I used Copic and Utrechtart markers and they smeared. Not bad sketching pens, but Steadtler is really a step up and doesn't smear if you're looking to do some fancy industrial design drawing.

    A Must Have! |
    Verified Purchase

    Great markers to have in your drawing kit. For the price they are hard to pass up! I think that anyone interested in drawing with mutliliner markers these would need to be considered a must have. They give you a wide variety of pens that can be used for high detail drawings (005 - .01), but also incorporate a fairly thick line (05 - 08) to make your more defined points pop! The points stay firm and they hold up for a decent amount of drawing time. I typically use them in my sketch book and I think I have had the same ones for a few months now with the exception of buying new 005 pens. Keep in mind that a lot of the stuff I draw as a fair amount of detail work involved so I utilize the 005 pen a lot more than any other. In addition, the smaller nibs will wear a lot faster if you write/draw with a firm stroke.

    5 of 6 Pens Leaking Ink and Unusable |
    Verified Purchase

    I bought these pens as replacements for when the one’s I’m currently using run out of ink. Finally the time came when my old 0.50mm ran out and I needed to replace it. I opened up the pack and laid the pens on my desk. I took the cap off of the 0.50 mm pen and ink went everywhere. The pen was leaking ink and the ink went everywhere. I was upset mostly because it ruined my drawing. I went to check if any of the other ones were like this one and 5 of the 6 pens were. I took the caps off one-by-one and five of the six were leaking. I ended up getting ink all over my desk and my pants in the process. Cleaning the desk was easier than cleaning my pants. In the past I have been happy with the product and that is why I purchased more. I hope this was a fluke occurrence but in the future, I will think twice about purchasing the micron pens. Paying for six pens and only receiving one quality pen is very disappointing. For that I have to give it 1 star.

    I love the feel of drawing with these pens, they lay down smooth and true on paper. Beautiful lines. I do wish they dried a bit faster, but that's how it goes with pens I guess? I wasn't aware of the frail tip of the 20mm but I blame my ignorance of how to handle drawing pens on that one. Will be more careful next time!

    my favorite pens ever |
    Verified Purchase

    as an illustration student i go through a LOT of pens. so i've tried to buy and use pretty much every major brand of ink pen to see which is the best, and hands down i've never used a pen better than these! they are truly waterproof, dry quickly, are rich in pigment, never bleed through the page, won't lift if erased over, and have a flat matte texture when dried (as opposed to say, sharpies, that have kind of an oil-spill shine). the only thing i dislike about them is that they kind of gum up if you try to use them over colored pencil, but that could just be because i use wax-based prismacolors. in my several years of using these pens i've never had any problems with ink leaking. if you're looking for a great quality, versatile pen set these are DEFINITELY worth the purchase especially at amazon's price!!

    Not waterproof |
    Verified Purchase

    These pens are good for drawing, but in my experience they are not waterproof. I tried to use them with watercolors in my journals. If I drew first, then added watercolor, they bled and smudged. Using them after I did a page wash was fine as long as everything was very dry. As an artist in creative flow, I can't live with that. I draw first, then paint. There can be no smudges. So, now I use them only for drawing without watercolor. Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens are the only truly waterproof pens I've found. That being said, they're still great pens, and I use them for pretty much everything else. I bought this set to replace the ones that have run out. Edited to add: I've read some of the reviews, and I wanted to add some thoughts I have on the pens drying out and nibs breaking. I made a lot of mistakes until I learned better. If you're already doing the following then it's definitely the pen. Some of the Sakura Pigma Micron pens I use I've had for almost 4 years, and they still write as good as new every time. 1) Store them flat. To extend the life of my pens I never store them upright, only flat. Because the ink is liquid, and not thick like a standard ballpoint or gel pen, it will be affected by gravity easier. It'll leak or move toward the end of the pen. If it's done this try flipping it nib down for a short while to get it to flow back. I lost a lot of art pens this way until someone told me to store them flat. Even the ones you use daily. Consider using a ziploc bag for long term storage. 2) Keep them away from heat and humidity. This will speed up the evaperation. That being said, my colored set made it through two heat waves in two years in a ziploc bag. I didn't have AC then, and I didn't want to lose anything. All of my pens made it through. 3) Make sure the cap is on tightly. This takes extra effort with Sakura pens. Sometimes I think it's on because it stays on, but it didn't click. When I'm putting everything away I go through and check my caps. 4) Gentle with the nib tips. The finer the pen, the lighter your hand needs to be. This may sound obvious, but if you're not familiar with these pens, you may need to know before you get them. I crushed the nibs of .01 and .02 within a week the first time I got them.

    I use these pens primarily in .005 size for Zentangle-like drawing. They are fantastic for making razor thin lines and very detailed images. I find the tips to last long enough and rarely do they mush up before the pen is out of ink. I love these pens. If you are intending to do widespread blackened drawings or want to fill in vast spaces, don't use these. These pens are special, save them for intricate designs requiring minute details.

    Bought SOLELY for Bible notes on the thin "high quality" onion skin paper. Came recommended on so many blogs and youtube and amazon. But I want to be clear that there is no truth that there is no bleed. On cheaper bible paper, I would imagine but not the thin ones - which are typical of bible paper. So I'm adding a pic hoping it will help you decide what's acceptable to you. I'd buy again simply because I have to make notes and this is as good as it gets. By the way, the most useful one in terms of tip was the second from left - labeled as 01 or .25mm tip. Next best being the first in the pack - 005 or .2mm

    Many of the other reviewers have mentioned that these pens are perfect for sketching; however, I have found that they are the best writing instruments for taking notes in books. Especially books with thin pages. My pen of choice has a tip of .005. No matter the delicacy of the page, the ink never bleeds through. Also, I tend to have messy handwriting but the Micron Pen forces precision. If you struggle with poor handwriting this pen might be what you need to improve. The multiplicity of colors in this set allows you to create a labeling system for notes inside the text. These pens are not intended for rapid note taking as they are not especially durable. Also the ink does not last very long before running out.

    Five stars for the quality of the ink - it's smooth-flowing, very black, doesn't bleed on the paper, and dries quickly. All the qualities you want in your ink. ONE STAR for the duribility of the pens. I tend to have a very hard grasp on my pens, and these just aren't up to it. The points break far too easily. After only a month of use, the area where the pen and nib joins has weakened to the point where the pens bleed all over my fingers and are unusable. If you have a light touch, you might love these pens. If not, find a more durable instrument. I'm still looking.

    0

    [Purchased through another Amazon account] I purchased these for my art class that required these pens. I like the fine tips and they are great. They are made nicely and the in really doesn't bleed or mess up. It's a very nice solid black color unlike Sharpie markers. I like everything about them but I realize after using the 01 pen for only a few minutes, it always dries up and then would work again after numerous scribbling. The 05 and 08 pens are fine and come out really bold and nice, but the ink does take a while to dry. I smudged it by accident once, and I normally do let things air out and dry. The 05 and 08 (or basically thicker tips), tend to "hair" up or just shed. I always have to use my fingers to pull out these pieces that get stuck onto them or come off from them. Overall, the product is good, but the fact that the thinner ones tend to dry out and require a lot of scribbling to fix is kind of inconvenient and annoying.

    Excellent for journal or lab notebooks |
    Verified Purchase

    These pens are absolutely fantastic! I had originally been turned on to these pens when I had come across an article showing that these Sakura pens had the best chemical, heat, and moisture resistance. Found here: [...] Ink stability is tantamount in a notebook for company or personal use. I can write with confidence knowing that my writing won't smear or fade and possibly lead me in a touchy legal situation. I also really like the fact that the caps STAY on the opposite ends when writing, unlike some pens which don't positively lock on and fall off, eventually being lost. My only gripe is that I'm often afraid of bending the tips of the smaller diameter pens. I use these pens at work in labs to document my findings and observations, as well as to draw any intellectual property that may be used in legal disputes. REMEMBER, your word is only as good as your documentation, engineers! Side note: A lot of the people who use the pens are incorrectly describing the sizes. The pen designation is a #005 and not it's diameter, not .005in, or 0.005mm. That #005 is 0.20mm in diameter, the "#" does not directly correlate to the pen diameter.

    Good balance of quality for price |
    0

    I have used these pens for fifteen years, which tells you something right there. They do not have the durability of a refillable pen set, but I find the disposability a convenience. If something happens to them, I don't have to feel bad, and I never have to refill them. Their primary good feature is the ink, which is very dark, covers well, does not bleed through paper, and is waterproof and archival-quality . . . for real. It is an extremely high-quality ink, and that's why I keep buying them. I have found no better disposable pen in fifteen years. The ink flow is moderate, neither too slow nor too free. They are well-suited for both outlining and for a more scratchy cross-hatching/scumbling approach, as they aren't so free-flowing that ink will wick out of them at the slightest touch of pen to paper. Put the tip down, leave it, that's about the size of the dot you get. The ink dries quickly and does not easily smear, although on very smooth paper that absorbs slower, execute care. As they run out of ink, they flow less easily, which can be frustrating. I draw in spurts, off and on, and have found that, unused, the pens will reliably last about a year if carefully stored (i.e., make sure the cap is on, it's not hot in the room, etc.). When using several sizes at once, cap them between use. The ink dries quickly on paper, which is great, but it also dries quickly in the tips. You can get them going again by writing a bit, but it's better to just take care. They write and draw well on most regular drawing papers, but not so well on photo papers or papers with any sort of plastic or super-slick finish; for those jobs, there are Micron pens specifically for photo paper. They aren't Sharpies, and don't write on things besides paper. The pen tips are not metal, but they are hard; they give a consistent line, and while there is some give, you will not get a terribly sensitive line out of them, and trying to do so will result in either bent nibs or metal nib housings (this can be a problem if you have a heavy hand, especially with the smaller sizes) or pen tips that are "soft" and will not draw as tight a line as before, or possibly tips that split. Overall, good pens, and would be especially good for a young artist experimenting with pen and ink.

    A grand inking pen with many sizes to please. |
    0

    These were the very first inking pens I ever got, and I was shocked by how well they worked. First off, they come in a variety of sizes, from the fairly thick .05 to the deliciously thin .005. It offers a nice range of line widths for artwork and a must-have for comic art. (And be sure to get the Brush Pen, the pen that acts like a mini-paintbrush!) The peeve I have about Sakura Micron is that the tip of the .005 is a bit fragile and liable to bend, but considering how tiny it is, you sort of expect that. Overall, a good pen whose sizes and alternate colors really make them stand out, but you have to be careful with the points, especially .005.

    0

    I am an avid pen and pencil artist. I have tried several brands of pens, these being a "must have" for me. They last quite awhile, the point stays firm, and the ink does not "bleed". The smallest is .005, largest .08. My favorites are the .005 and .01, but I own all sizes and colors. I HIGHLY recommend this set to start with, but beware - once you try these, you will be hooked!

    Good pens, but some problems. |
    0

    [Purchased through another Amazon account] I purchased these for my art class that required these pens. I like the fine tips and they are great. They are made nicely and the in really doesn't bleed or mess up. It's a very nice solid black color unlike Sharpie markers. I like everything about them but I realize after using the 01 pen for only a few minutes, it always dries up and then would work again after numerous scribbling. The 05 and 08 pens are fine and come out really bold and nice, but the ink does take a while to dry. I smudged it by accident once, and I normally do let things air out and dry. The 05 and 08 (or basically thicker tips), tend to "hair" up or just shed. I always have to use my fingers to pull out these pieces that get stuck onto them or come off from them. Overall, the product is good, but the fact that the thinner ones tend to dry out and require a lot of scribbling to fix is kind of inconvenient and annoying.

    A grand inking pen with many sizes to please. |
    0

    These were the very first inking pens I ever got, and I was shocked by how well they worked. First off, they come in a variety of sizes, from the fairly thick .05 to the deliciously thin .005. It offers a nice range of line widths for artwork and a must-have for comic art. (And be sure to get the Brush Pen, the pen that acts like a mini-paintbrush!) The peeve I have about Sakura Micron is that the tip of the .005 is a bit fragile and liable to bend, but considering how tiny it is, you sort of expect that. Overall, a good pen whose sizes and alternate colors really make them stand out, but you have to be careful with the points, especially .005.

    Good balance of quality for price |

    I have used these pens for fifteen years, which tells you something right there. They do not have the durability of a refillable pen set, but I find the disposability a convenience. If something happens to them, I don't have to feel bad, and I never have to refill them. Their primary good feature is the ink, which is very dark, covers well, does not bleed through paper, and is waterproof and archival-quality . . . for real. It is an extremely high-quality ink, and that's why I keep buying them. I have found no better disposable pen in fifteen years. The ink flow is moderate, neither too slow nor too free. They are well-suited for both outlining and for a more scratchy cross-hatching/scumbling approach, as they aren't so free-flowing that ink will wick out of them at the slightest touch of pen to paper. Put the tip down, leave it, that's about the size of the dot you get. The ink dries quickly and does not easily smear, although on very smooth paper that absorbs slower, execute care. As they run out of ink, they flow less easily, which can be frustrating. I draw in spurts, off and on, and have found that, unused, the pens will reliably last about a year if carefully stored (i.e., make sure the cap is on, it's not hot in the room, etc.). When using several sizes at once, cap them between use. The ink dries quickly on paper, which is great, but it also dries quickly in the tips. You can get them going again by writing a bit, but it's better to just take care. They write and draw well on most regular drawing papers, but not so well on photo papers or papers with any sort of plastic or super-slick finish; for those jobs, there are Micron pens specifically for photo paper. They aren't Sharpies, and don't write on things besides paper. The pen tips are not metal, but they are hard; they give a consistent line, and while there is some give, you will not get a terribly sensitive line out of them, and trying to do so will result in either bent nibs or metal nib housings (this can be a problem if you have a heavy hand, especially with the smaller sizes) or pen tips that are "soft" and will not draw as tight a line as before, or possibly tips that split. Overall, good pens, and would be especially good for a young artist experimenting with pen and ink.

    Excellent for journal or lab notebooks |
    Verified Purchase

    These pens are absolutely fantastic! I had originally been turned on to these pens when I had come across an article showing that these Sakura pens had the best chemical, heat, and moisture resistance. Found here: [...] Ink stability is tantamount in a notebook for company or personal use. I can write with confidence knowing that my writing won't smear or fade and possibly lead me in a touchy legal situation. I also really like the fact that the caps STAY on the opposite ends when writing, unlike some pens which don't positively lock on and fall off, eventually being lost. My only gripe is that I'm often afraid of bending the tips of the smaller diameter pens. I use these pens at work in labs to document my findings and observations, as well as to draw any intellectual property that may be used in legal disputes. REMEMBER, your word is only as good as your documentation, engineers! Side note: A lot of the people who use the pens are incorrectly describing the sizes. The pen designation is a #005 and not it's diameter, not .005in, or 0.005mm. That #005 is 0.20mm in diameter, the "#" does not directly correlate to the pen diameter.

    Great pen, but experienced leaking |
    Verified Purchase

    Love these pens. I was looking for a fine point sharpie like pen, and these are the best for fine drawings. Although I didn't get a chance to use all of them, one of the lens was leaking before I even opened it. Not sure if I got a defect, but it is a little disappointing.

    Got four pens leaking, I've been storing them flat ... |
    Verified Purchase

    Got four pens leaking, I've been storing them flat in a drawer. And oddly none of the ones that I carry with me everyday leaked ink. I tried wiping out the ink but they still keep leaking ink. Now I have to stick with Copic Multiliner.

    Excellent for Illustration and for Fixing Ampersand Scratchboards |

    Wonderful pens. I bought some to fix stray marks on my scratchboard work and then had some black and white illustration work that needed to be done. I pulled out a .005 and a 02 and did quite a few pieces of "spot" art. High quality. Love them and now am purchasing more.
