    Drawing system pens are amongst their best sellers, the Artline Drawing System 0.5mm was launched in 2011 & is ideal for technical drawing, graphic design & illustrating. Despite computer aided design systems becoming common place, drawing boards can still be found in the offices of engineers & architects with some claiming that clients prefer to see hand drawing as it gives a more realistic view, as you'd expect there are still many that think there is a place for both so my guess is this type of pen will be around for some time.

    The Artline 0.5mm drawing system pen has a friction proof plastic nib enabling a consistent line to be achieved. The metal collar & sleeve makes these pens well suited to use with stencils & rulers as well as sketching, drawing & writing.

    Other features include

    • Water Based Pigment Ink
    • Xylene free
    • Conform to British Standards & RoHS (Restriction of Use of Hazardous Substances)
    • Fade Resistant

    When it came to using this pen I was disappointed that I couldn't post the cap, this made it feel really short & uncomfortable in my hand. I took the opportunity to try my hand at a touch of stencilling....OK a little more practice is needed on my part but this drawing pen did complete the task in hand.

    On the positive side the cap was well fitting over the nib, snapping firmly to prevent the nib drying out & it has a sturdy metal pocket clip. The grip was basic consisting of a few rows of narrow lines, but it did prevent my fingers slipping.
