Letter Pen 'Cocoiro'

There are a lot of letter/sign/brush pens out there. The Cocoiro by Zig has been around for a number of years but I feel that it is maybe a bit underrated. If you haven’t heard of this pen, I hope you’ll find this post useful.

The Cocoiro is a letter pen system which comes in 2 parts, a writing component and an interchangeable pen body. The pen body (pen sleeve and cap) is available in 16 different colours, limited edition designs are also available periodically. The writing component (ink and brush/pen) comes in extra fine brush, available in 12 colours, Rollerball, 0.3mm black and Brush, black only.

You can purchase a set, which consists of pen body plus extra fine in black ink, everything you need to get started OR you can buy the pen body and writing component separately. It’s a pretty flexible system, swap colours and pen bodies as and when you please.

I’ve only purchased 3 colours from the ink range; black, sepia and dark green but my favourite is the sepia, I just feel that it’s really special and unique and it’s one of the things that drew me to these pens.

The extra fine brush tip is the most common refill. It is not as soft or long as say, the tombow brush pen which makes is perfect for lettering and drawing. It might take a while to get used to using but it’s a great pen to work with. I’ve not tried the ballpen and I’m not as fond of the brush refill as much as other brush pens so I cannot recommend them.

Have you used this before? What do you think about it?
