there are similar pen brands that work just as well -- i used to use sakura pigma microns, which are considerably cheaper in price -- but multiliners are nice in that they can be refilled and their nibs replaced (the aluminum-bodied SP pens, that is.) they also come in a pretty nice range of sizes, and there are some brush-type ones too.
