The best way for me to become one with a tool that still feels foreign in my hand is to force myself to use it for an entire day…. and then to keep using it on a regular basis for at least a week.  This is day number one for my two ink brush fountain pens, a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and a Kuretake Sumi Brush Fountain Pen.
