SAI brushes were the first of its kind to create water-soluble brushes in a self-contained, disposable form. They combine the traditional Japanese sumi-e brush quality with modern brush functionality. By adjusting the amount of pressure applied, you can draw fine lines to bold strokes.The innovative design of these Sai brush pens from Akashiya is what helped it win the 2007 ISOT Stationery of the Year award in Japan.

These Japanese fude style brushes can create a beautiful range of shading and watercolour effects when blended with water. Simply wet the brush tip with water to thin out the ink or use with water brush to create natural contrast and gradation. Moreover, Sai brushes work wonderfully with pencils, water-resistant art markers or pens to color in the outlines for your cartoon, manga art, etc. Colours can be also combined with other colors on a palette to create your own new colours.
