Notice I said the 02 size. It's a wonderful writer, checking in around 0.35 mm line width, and even the 01 size sees a lot of use, leaving a line around 0.3 mm. But the 003 size Zig Cartoonist? Who do you think I am, Sam Larson?
I pick on Sam because I love his artwork. He does amazing work with some of the finest drawing pens on the planet, but I can't swing the 003 personally. I don't have the need for it. That said, compared to other tiny tipped drawing pens this Kuretake has a firmer tip than most. That's why I like the 01 and 02 sizes so much. Durability is important with this style of pen.
I'm curious how many readers out there have a use for such a specialized pen. It's clearly useful for many people, and honestly it's technically impressive that such a pen exists. How and why would you use a pen with a tip this small? Let me know in the comments section.
