M97. Pentel Sign Pen Brush Tip
M97. Pentel Fude Sign Pen Brush Tip Marker
This pen's brush-like tip is great for quick, fun writing. Linda Schneider uses it for pointed pen scripts such as Copperplate and Spencerian. Grace Song calls it the Pentel Fude Touch Sign Pen and calls it "a great beginner brush pen." Water-based ink.

M97. Pentel Sign Pen Brush Tip color chart.

Linda's comments:
"...resembles the same calligraphic line as a nib with the pointed pen. The Pentel pen is easy to carry in a purse or pocket, unlike so many other brush markers on the market. Wonderful to practice lettering outside your studio without having to carry your pen, ink, water etc. I am encouraging calligraphers to write anywhere, anytime, anyplace, like at restaurants (a thank-you with the waiter's name on it), anywhere on the go, on location, even on an airplane."

Linda's comments on the new colors:

"I love, love, LOVE the new colors of the Pentel Sign Pen brush marker!!!! I recommend them to anyone interested in pointed pen, whether a beginner or professional, to carry one on them at all times while out of the studio, either to practice or to write notes of thanks."

Linda Schneider, author of Designing Faces, Figures, Florals and More: Contemporary Ornate Pictorial Calligraphy (B3209). These markers will be featured in her forthcoming book Script Lettering and Design: Anywhere, Anytime, and on Anything (B3959).

"Calligraphers in Portland [Oregon] have been using Gilbert Bond for years and years and LOVE it totally. My students and I have decided that 'we are worth it' and use Gilbert for practice. We think using a better paper makes our calligraphy practice seem more important (and practice is so important!). I thoroughly recommend the paper; it would be hard to recommend Gilbert Bond too highly!" - Carol DuBosch
