I got my Chibi yesterday...
Verified Purchase
I got my Chibi yesterday and oh, it is way cute. The yellow body is a good quality plastic that feels more resilient than the typical brittle styrene that you see in cheap, clear pens. It's more comfortable in my hand than I expected. Quite nice, in fact. The nib was okay out of the package, but one of the tines needed a tweak with my thumbnail to get it back into alignment. With this little adjustment, the pen wrote very smoothly, decent wetness, no skipping so far.

I'm delighted because I've been looking for sturdy, inexpensive fountain pens I can throw into traveling sketch kits. The barrel has a small hole at the bottom, so the pen cannot be used as an eyedropper as is. But I suspect the hole would be easy to plug with a dab of epoxy. The threads between body and section are generous, so I suspect it would just need a bit of silicone grease to make the seal waterproof.

its really thick so maybe a brush would work better than a nib. you can dilute this ink, but when it dries, its not as opaque. the consistency is a bit like syrup, maybe thicker.

It's fun. Tiny origami project fun. It is a really small grid notepad, not really functional for more than that, but it's .....it's a tidbit. That's fun to say, you know it is. Tid bit.

Overall, I love this...
Verified Purchase
Overall, I love this pencil. I only have one complaint, the grip. If the grip had a softer hold maybe it would get a five star from me. I have a story along with this pencil. This pencil ruined my life. The pencil made me lose my girlfriend, my job and, my social life. I've also gained some weight, due to spending so much time with it. I guess you can say i lost my life because of this pencil. If you want a life DON'T buy this pencil.

Got my Chibi today...
Verified Purchase
Got my Chibi today and my initial impressions are good. While it's not much to look at (I'm not a fan of the fluorescent yellow), it writes very well. It came in a cellophane sleeve with one ink cartridge in the barrel. I loaded it up and gave it a shake to get it started. Ink flow is great...this is a fairly wet pen, which I like. The steel nib is a little scratchy, but writes surprisingly well.
I'm finding that in order to write for any length of time, the cap needs to be posted. It's just too small to write comfortably without it. Of course, that's to be expected in a mini pen. However, the only drawback I've found so far is that when I post the cap, I have to use a little more pressure than I would expect (and a little twist) to get it to stay secure.
If you're on the fence, buy it. For the price, you can't go wrong with the Chibi. Stick one in your pocket or purse and if it gets lost or given away the branding on the cap might direct someone to the best pen site on the web and you'll have done your good deed for the day. Win/Win.
Way to go JetPens! (Now, let's talk about different body colors....)
