Pentel's Sign Pen Brush is a firm-tipped brush pen that's perfect for all kinds of writing, drawing, and calligraphy, including Japanese lettering. We use it all the time in our shop to write price tags and informational signs, because its lines have much more character than a ballpoint without being too soft to write quickly and neatly. The Sign Pen Brush comes in twelve bright colors, so you can use it for pretty much any project. Water-based, quick drying dye ink. Made in Japan.
