this post for the "before" picture.) I pulled out my Stabilo point 88 pen set (I have a set of 20) and started tangling with different colors. The nib is 0.4 and has a different feel and look from the Sakura microns, but the price and the color choice is awesome. I'm not sure how the quality of the ink compares. It was a fun experiment. I'm not sure if you can see it, but some of the pearlescence from the first print came thru on these as well, but muted. Tangles used, Betweed, Shattuck, Tipple, Amaze, Diva Dance and Orlique.
