Copics. I’ve heard the word thrown around so much that I thought it was about time I reviewed these pens, 20160428_105258
so here goes.

One of the main things that struck me about Copic’s multiliner pens is how light they are. Whilst I think the Sakura Microns are slightly heavier and feel expensive, Multiliner Copics are light, unassuming, and free of bells and whistles when it comes to the pen body. Lids go on and off easily, attaching to the back with no fuss. They’re still a sturdy pen, and thank heavens: the inner tube doesn’t rattle around! Amazing how much of a difference that makes when you spend a lot of time writing by hand.

Ink-wise I have nothing really to comment on, perhaps except the ink may be a little lighter in tone to the Microns, however that would be splitting hairs. My biggest beef with the Copics is that the nib didn’t last as long as I had hoped. Like its Micron competition, the nib tip went flat relatively quickly with use, and whilst still perfectly functional on it’s end, it does make it frustrating to use at an angle.

Untitled-2Impressive though, are the sizes that Copics go to. If you’re an artist looking for fine nibbed pens to do intricate art with, look no further. These pens go beyond tiny, with a microscopic 0.03 size that looks like a hair line. The level of detail this pen could achieve in the right hands I imagine would be stupendous.

Overall, I was quite pleased with my Copic Multiliner experience. Whilst I personally prefer Microns for bulk writing, I will definitely be using Copics for artwork in the future.

ABOUT ItB REVIEWS

Into the Book was born out of a crazy idea of a blog that'd provide book reviews for teens. There aren't very many book review websites out there exposing awesome, high-quality Christian literature, and there are even fewer that target teenagers. Since 2009, we've been providing high-quality book reviews to the world through our blog. Into the Book has grown around reviews since then, but it remains our oldest project.
