What is the fastest drying pen?
If you’re left-handed, or someone who just appreciates a fast drying pen so you can highlight over the writing without the ink smudging all over the paper, chances are – you’ve searched for a fast drying pen in our local stationery store. The sad part is, fast drying pens are very rare and hard to find, but no worries – we’ve got you covered.
So what pen are you talking about?
I’m talking about the Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens, which is a set of fineliners by Faber Castell which come in a variety of tip sizes. They are, by far – the fastest drying pen I’ve tried, and I’ve tried a lot of pens. These are easily available in a lot of stores, online and offline – and you can buy different pack sizes depending on how many tip sizes you want.
What is the drying time?
These pen take around 1 second to be smudge-free and one more second before you can safely go over with a highlighter. I’ve literally tried my best to smear it but it just won’t smear – it’s that quick. I think this pen would work wonders for lefties because it just dries so fast.
Ink Quality – A boon
I fell in love with its amazing ink quality – it’s a high quality black and it’s water proof. The flow of the ink is smooth as butter, and it really puts community favorite fineliners like the Sakura Pigma Microns to shame with it’s outstanding consistency and flow. It’s easily one of the best fineliners when it comes to ink quality.
Available Tip Sizes:
There are four main tip sizes:
- XS – 0.1mm tip
- S – 0.3mm tip
- F – 0.5mm tip(Personal Favorite)
- M – 0.8mm tip
There’s also a 1.5mm bullet nib, and a few brush pens and calligraphy pens – but those aren’t fineliners.
Where can you find them?

Likewise, you can easily find yours in a local stationery store, like I found mine! These are very easily available.
The Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens are easily one of the fastest drying pens out there, and they have great durability and ink quality to come with it. The pen body is comfortable to grip for long hours, and ink flow is smooth and consistent.
If you leave the pen-cap open for too long, the pen takes a few scribbles before it can write smoothly again, and it can get annoying sometimes – so that’s one drawback to keep in mind.
Summarizing, these pens are extremely good quality and fast drying, and is definitely one of the best fineliners out there that you can buy in 2018 right now. Are they worth your money? As someone who has always looked for the fastest drying pen – the answer is a big yes.
