Based on the tip, which matches the example provided in Lesson 0, it's a fineliner, so it's the current type of pen. Can't speak to the size though, based on your photos.

I just tested it with other pens with varied tip sizes and a ruler. I can definitely say it's 1 mm, my fault, there was no way of telling from the cover. I can't go again to the store till around July because of family problems I won't discuss.

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
