This pen has become one...
October 26, 2015
This pen has become one of my all-time favorites, and I have been searching for
a long time. I have loved pens for as long as I can remember, but I never found
that one pen that I'd keep going back to. Sure, I'd buy the same pens multiple
times, not because I thought they were great, but more because I knew they safe.
There's nothing worse than getting stuck with a pack of unusable pens.
I magically came across this website during my search for pens from pretty much
anywhere outside of the states. Recent trips to Southeast Asia introduced me to
needle-point pens and I have fallen in love. I tend to prefer ballpoint pens
and a slightly thinner line than 0.7 mm, but I see no reason to deduct stars for
something it isn't. Instead, I will share why it IS so amazing.
This pen is actually quite great for writing or taking notes in a hurry. I am
constantly jotting down notes when I am with patients, signing various forms,
and many other random papers/documents, so a steady, consistent flow of ink is
quite important. I need to know that I can rely on the pen to perform when I
need it. If the tip were just a bit smaller, I'd be able to use the pen to
write in other places where a finer line is necessary, but I am purchasing the
set of 6 in order to: a) determine which pen best suits my needs; b) have a
variety; and c) have a backup when this little guy runs out of ink.
Other features of the pen I enjoy are the color and shape of the body, as well
as the cap. The black body with traces of orange give it a sleek look, while
the orange gives it a bit of color and allows it to stand out. This is helpful
because, when everyone's pens begin to look the same, it's hard to tell whether
you get your pen back. I can easily spot my pen when multiple hands need to
"borrow it really quickly." We all know how that [usually] ends, lol. As for
the cap, it hangs on. I clip it to my pads or charts with ease, and while it
may sometimes slip around, it rarely falls off.
I truly enjoy this pen and I look forward to receiving the set once I complete
my order. When writing, like actual old-fashioned hand-writing notes and
papers, is a significant part of your daily professional routine, finding a pen
that you love to use actually makes all that paperwork a tad bit easier. It's
the little things.
