I was very pleased to read this thread as I just purchased the 0200WsWl: Brush Hair. Very eager to receive it. Thanks.
I was also looking for the best inkstick to choose for calligraphy and seriously considered both these excellent inksticks. One of these will very likely be my second purchase but I picked the Jin Bu Yi Fine Oil Soot Black Inkstick for my first. Once my poor efforts and practice make me more worthy one of these will head my way.14th December 2018 at 4:09 pm in reply to: I am looking for a proper inkstick for calligraphy.

I ordered the Jin Bu Yi Fine Oil Soot Black Inkstick to use for drawing and calligraphy with glass and steel nib dip pens. It appears that was a good choice.
This was the first inkstick I chose. I plan to use it for drawing and calligraphy with both glass and steel nib dip pens.
My first inkstick was (just ordered yesterday) the small Jin Bu Yi Fine Oil Soot Black Inkstick. I chose it both for the shape and because one review said it worked so well for dip pens. Since I hope to use it with both glass and steel nib dip pens for drawing and my poor calligraphy it seemed a good choice. This morning I walked out behind our house and there was a huge owl sitting in our plum tree. He was the first I have ever seen here. I took it as an omen that I had chosen wisely.
