IMG_6880
As I have doodled here on a Monologue sketch book with it. Noticed that using inverted, I have achieved some fine lines.

Faber Castell is an established brand. This Rhombus model comes in 2 colours – Black and White. I am reviewing the black model.

The ink feed is smooth, very smooth indeed. The finer lines were done with the nib inverted.

The T800 Terminator sketch was finished in 4 continuous lines. I am very impressed with the smooth feed because I am a quick sketcher of lines.

The same piece with water colour. I waited out for 15 minutes before adding colours because the ink I used is Hero brand, it takes a while to dry to avoid smudging of colours.

Overall, I am very happy with this pen. Thanks to Ink Fusion for allowing me to try on this. I hope you enjoy my review.
