  This was my 1st Jetpens..., February 25, 2012

This was my 1st Jetpens purchase, the one that started the addiction ;-) I read about Jetpens on BoingBoing.net, and one of the commenters said these Letter Pens are the best writing experience ever! I checked them out here, found them to be pretty inexpensive and decided to give it a try.
I bought this Rose Komachi Pink Cocoiro pen body w/ matching Rose Pink ink refill (also bought the blue body & black body and 6-7 different ink colors to try). Of course you don't have to match the ink color to the body color, but its just so much nicer to do so. And others have said you can write with the refills alone, no need to buy the pen body--but it just looks so cute and feels so comfortable to write with the pen body.
JJust buy the pen body along w/ the refills, you won't be sorry. Get it in your favorite color, you REALLY only need one pen body since you (probably?) only write with one pen at a time...
On to the review: Ink is lovely, translucent, bright, and richly pigmented. Pen tip is unlike any I've seen, theres no comparison. You can write with the tip for super-fine lines, or at an angle for thicker lines. IIt doesnt dry up if you don't use them often--I set mine aside for like 6 months, and they still write exactly the same.
I give 5 stars for the Letter Pens' ability to make plain handwriting look almost calligraphic, especially Japanese writing, which pourrs forth effortlesslyy from these lovely pens. The ink never skips no matter how fast you bwrite, and feathering is kind of rare, depending on the paper...I'd save them for actual letter-writing, not note taking or furious emotional diary writing sessions, because they look so fancy, and dark ink colors bleed thru the pages of mostt notebooks (even Moleskine, sigh!).

The color is bright and the body feels nice in hand. I don't like the way the end of the ink refil sticks out of the bottom - it makes it seem like part of my pen is missing. Even with that one issue, I still REALLY LIKE this pen.
