Pen? Marker?

I have to say that this box of "pens" is a great deal. Since you can basically get 2 for 1 at the current sale price, I didn't feel guilty throwing 2 boxes into my shopping cart.

I was interested in these pens due to the overwhelming request to have them restocked by JetPens. When they came back in, I decided to give them a whirl.

While they are a bit different than I expected (Are they pens? Are they markers?) I was happy to give them out to coworkers because they are affordable (at the time I write this).

Clearly there is a theme here - I would, as a US shopper, consider these markers, not pens. The tip is very wide compared to other sign pens I've purchased, and the ink is similar to something seen in say, a Crayola marker. As the box says, these are water based, and I know that if I spilled anything on the ink, that it would run like crazy.

The black ink is not black-black, and I suppose that is due to the formulation of the water based ink and the fairly wide "felty" tip. Despite the box's insisting that that there are "vivid and various ink colors", I did not find the ink to be very vivid. Although, I'm not quite sure HOW vivid black ink can be...

Regardless, there are clearly some fans of this pen. It may not have been up my alley, in the end, but I know that I won't run out of them anytime soon as I now have 22 of them easily within my grasp.

I really like these sign pens.
I bought the dong-a ones instead of the monami ones i usually get elsewhere and they were very good.

One quick thing though. This sign pen is a lot thicker than it seems in pictures and compared to other ones.

These are weird! They remind me of the cheap pens you get with the velvet poster kits. I won't be purchasing them again, but I have to remember... I'm a pen snob, so it's okay that I don't like them, maybe others do.

The color is very dark, the pen barrel feels cheap in the hand, but for some inexpensive markers, I think they would work fine!

It's a great, long lasting porous writing pen. I use it in my classroom for early writers. It makes their writing stand out because it looks more like the black print they see in books. This makes them feel like real authors! Please keep stocking this pen.
Please restock!...
