I'm a beginner, and I saw these pens recommended in every book I read. I have the black and the brown. They do write very nicely and precisely and evenly, and they feel really nice to use. You can't just use any old pen for scrapbooking if you want to preserve the memories. You have to make sure the ink won't wash away and that it won't damage the paper, and, the pen needs to write evenly without blobs or skipping. These Sakura pens do all that.
I know realize just how wonderful these fine tip pens are. I had to outline some thin letters and I tried these and since the tip is fine it worked very well. It's a great pen to use for outlining small things for a shadow effect and they don't run like some other pens I've used.
