It's a great sketching pen. Love it.
from Bristish Columbia, Canada
All I need to sketch on the go. Is my Rotring pen, a water brush and a sketchbook. I just wish Blick would selll its converter.
The perfect ink pen that doesn't dry up and quit.
By Kathy the painter
from Lecompton, KS
I lost my last rotring pen and had to replace it. After looking everywhere to purchase it (even an art store in Europe) I got the best price with Blick. This pen is perfect for signing almost everything. If it appears clogged up, just dip in water and it's like new.

Rotring Art Pen (Calligraphy nib)
from Atchison, Kansas
I have used the Rotring Art Pens for many years (since their appearance) with calligraphy nibs (1.1, 1.5, 2.3) and have found them extremely reliable, comfortable, light and easily maintained. Being left-handed, I grind the nibs to an oblique angle, and they have borne that attack quite well. The pens, originally designed by Hermann Zapf, I believe, have a genetic history that shows in every version. I do recommend them highly.

I love this pen.
from Lusby, MD
I do a lot of pen and ink drawings. I especially enjoy drawing with a fountain pen. This pen fills the bill.
By Older Artist
I own both the extra fine and the medium nibs. Both pens are used with waterproof ink (Noodles) to sketch. They work perfectly.
from St. Petersburg, Fl
The pen is nice quality. It is a nice substitute for a dip art pen. Kind of like the same quality with out the mess. My only complaint is I wish the ink cartridges were bigger. But well worth the price.

No luck with these pens for drawing
I keep purchasing these Rotring pens, hoping I'll finally get one that works for simple pen and ink drawing. I now have 3, the ExtraFine, Bold, and 2.3 Calligraphy. I've tried the Rotring ink cartridges in all 3, as well as a Rotring piston cartridge loaded with fine fountain pen inks such as Winsor & Newton. None of the combinations is usable for drawing or sketching because it's so difficult to get the ink to flow at the beginning of each session, resulting in inkless steel scratches in the paper. When it does flow, its erratic and undependable, yielding broken lines or lines with varying widths. I've given up on them and returned to simple dip pens and nibs, which are reliable and produce far better results.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
