Pentel Vicuna Ballpoint Pen - 0.5 mm - Blue Body - Blue Ink

You'll love this super-smooth ink the instant you start writing. In developing Vicuna ink, Pentel successfully lowered ink viscosity to the lowest limits and achieved the smoothest ballpoint ink. This ink, combined with a smooth ball roll (made possible by a special lubricant) ensures a great writing experience. The ink color is vivid, resulting in clear writing.

The colored area that covers most of the body is a soft elastomer, comfortable for writing. The textured wavy lines on the grip also provide comfort and depict the smooth flow of ink.

My only problem is that, like the Pilot Frixion, what the companies call "blue" is actually purple for the barrel. They get the ink right, but not the pen material. I don't like to carry purple pens.

Great ink flow with a vivid blue that makes it feel a little more like a gel pen than ballpoint.

Meh. The ink seems to drain out way too quickly, also the writing isn't very smooth. The pen leaves blotches and dots of ink all over the page. I purchased a 0.7 refill, hoping that it will write a lot better and more smoothly than the 0.5.

I didn't have many expectations for this ballpoint, but it has become my new go to retractable pen! It produces a fine, dark blue line. Love it for list making and taking quick notes - even if my handwriting is fast and sloppy, the ink doesn't show it.
