Match-Up 1: Tombow Fudenosuke vs. Pentel Sign Touch
Pentel Sign Touch pens come in 12 colors. There’s another set that looks a lot like these brush pens that are actually fine-liners, so make sure you get the right ones here!
Winner: Pentel Sign Touch!
Match-Up 2: Zebra Fude Sign vs. Kelly Creates Fine Black
Both of these pens were new to us at the beginning of the bracket, but we are loving them as a small-tip alternative to the pens from Match-up #1.
The Zebra Fude sign brush pens come in a 4-pack on Amazon with extra fine, fine, and medium sizes, plus one gray pen.
Kelly Creates has a 3-pack of black brush pens, which is how we came across the fine tip one.
Winner: Zebra Fude!
Match-Up 3: Kelly Creates Medium vs. Faber-Castell Pitt
Now we’re getting into the first medium-tip brush pens of the bracket.
Winner: Faber-Castell Pitt!
Match-Up 5: Kuretake Zig Brushables vs. Fudebiyori
It’s a Kuretake Zig showdown! The Brushables are a dual-tip brush pen (both ends are brushes!) and they have a beautiful selection of pigmented ink.
The Fudebiyori comes in tons of colors, has an awesome nib, and is small enough to stick in your purse.
Match-Up 8: Karin Brushmarker Pro vs. Ecoline Brush Pen
If you’re looking for a beautiful, juicy watercolor brush pen… you definitely need to get your hands on either the Karin or Ecoline watercolor brush pens.
The winners that you’ve picked throughout the competition so far will now face one another in the semi-finals. Only FOUR pens will move onto the next round, so vote wisely!
The winners that you’ve picked in the semi-finals go head to head in the finals. The two winners will compete in the CHAMPIONSHIP!
