Use the 0.5mm edge for sharp, monoline writing or use the broad edge for calligraphic writing. You can also produce color-blended letters by touching ink from one pen to a second pen loaded with another color.

Set includes the four pens at right (1.5, 2.4, 3.8, 6.0) in the photo and 12 single cartridges, one of each color.
