Welcome to dickblick
This calligraphy pen with a flat nib allows you to produce beautiful lettering with very little practice.
Pen Touch comes in brilliant opaque metallic gold or silver ink, which dries quickly on paper, and is permanent on most surfaces, including plastic, wood, glass, and metal.
The medium point produces a 5 mm line, with a fiber nib cut into a rectangular block. The fine point makes a 1.8 mm line, with a nib made from a special plastic so that it will not split or fray. The pens are xylene-free and low in odor.

Don't buy these...
By art teacher

Comments about Sakura Metallic Pen Touch Calligrapher:
I'm an art educator. I spent a small fortune of my budget to buy a class set of these pens. After 1 use, I have 3-4 that started leaking everywhere. The paint flowed out everywhere and the tips wouldn't write. I was incredibly frustrated as were my students. On some of them the tip even fell out. Horrible product... will not purchase again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bad quality control
Ordered two colors of these pens. It is the 2nd time trying to order the copper. Both times, when you push the tip down to start the ink it POURS out all over. This proves it is not just a fluke but terrible quality control and style. That being said, do not attempt to use the pen on something worthwhile. We ruined an entire posh notebook. The black one we ordered, when I took the cap off, the tip just fell out. I tried to put it back in but it wouldn't stay in. Both useless.
Merchant response: We apologize for the issues you've encountered with these pens, and we're more than happy to take care of this for you. Please look for an email from a member of our Customer Care Team who will be in touch to assist you with this.

Rave reviews from the Artist in my Family
My Teenage son really enjoys pens, doodling, art projects and just having the creative flexibility for using a variety of pens. I bought him this calligraphy pen and he has had nothing but positive comments about how it writes and the ease of use. He did mention that it will bleed through standard paper.

I use these pens in doing calligraphy. They are the best I have found!
Wedding Invitation Calligraphy
from Kansas City, MO
These pens worked great on a dark surface, the ink flowed evenly and my calligrapher was exceptionally happy with them. Blick was very quick on the turn around when it came to ordering pens. We ordered 3 for over 300 invites. Great over all value.
Love, love, love it!!!

I had a pen that wrote in Silver a long time ago and have not found one to replace it anywhere until now. I got both a gold and a silver and an extra gold and silver for my granddaughter who is just starting out in calligraphy. I will be checking your site for more items in the future. I also heard that you have a store in the St. Louis area so I will probably go brousing there soon. I already had tried to find what I needed at Art Mart but they didn't carry that much like you do.
love it!!! wish there were more colors!!!
Exploding ink, ruining work
from Detroit, MI
The gold and silver pens arrived the other day, and within 24 hours of light use both are essentially unusable...I learned this in the worst sense after an attempt at fine detail highlighting with the gold pen turned quickly to horrible crisis (i.e. leaking ink). My personal investment in their Micron pens alone has probably provided at least one Sakura exec a comfortable year-end bonus, so I really am unhappy with these metallic pens. For calligraphy, it seems, my brand loyalties will have to lie elsewhere.
