The quality is pretty bad on these refills. The tips are very dry and the ink
does not flow worth a hoot. Even when left tip-down overnight they still do not
become saturated enough to lay down a wet line, and will instead just create a
bead of ink on the end, making a mess on the paper. Skip this one.
Beautiful color, very fine tip, and dries quickly. I'm left handed so a quick
drying ink is a highly desirable quality - if you write on regular paper, it
dries quickly... However, be careful on slicker surfaces such as postcards, it
may take a moment to dry (giving lefties that smudge-y problem). These are my
I like these pens but the refills are a hit or miss. When I get a good one I
LOVE them... sometimes a refill is somehow too dry despite the ink being there.
Despite the defective refills I'v sporadically get the colors are the best and
they are great for sketching and writing.
