Pentel & Me
I was introduced to Pentel products years ago while working at an art store part time. Once I tried the pocket brush pen in my sketchbook drawing I never looked back. I’ve tried other brands before and occasionally use them but nothing in my opinion measures up with the quality that Pentel delivers.
