Often time holidays become a marathon of calligraphy writing as elders send out postcards and letters to family and associates. The older one gets in Japan, the longer the list of friends and acquaintances that require a postcard during the holidays (many times over 100 people). For such an endeavor one requires nothing but the best writing instruments to fulfill the task, for writing beautiful kanji is appreciated by others. This Pilot pen series is designed specifically for kanji writing and is available in extra fine, fine and broad points. The oil based gel ink dries super fast and produces very dark and shiny lines.

Pen dimensions: 135 mm length x 11 mm diameter.

  The only negative aspect..., July 26, 2012
By kme... - See all my reviews
The only negative aspect of these Pilot Envelope Pens is that there are NEVER enough of them in stock to purchase when you want to. I had received an email telling me they were in stock (all three versions) and finally got a chance to get online to purchase them a mere HOURS later, and they were already out of stock!

I really do love the deep black line these pens create. I had expected, or hoped rather, that the ink would dry with a more obvious shine but was disappointed a little when it came down to it. While these pens have written their way into my top 5 favorite pens, I am still on a seemingly endless search for a shiny pen. I do feel the need to mention that you will be required to prime the pens on another piece of paper before writing on an envelope in the event you find yourself putting it down with the cap off for any length of time. This isn't a big enough irritation to warrant a lesser rating however, which is why the rating stands at a strong five. Also, I am extremely sensitive to fragrances, and these pens don't register to me enough to complain about. I have on the rare occasion smelled them, but the scent was gone as quickly as it had appeared. Mine do not seem to smell the entire time I use them.

  This pen writes well..., February 12, 2013
By dav... - See all my reviews
This pen writes well and the ink is quite nice (too bad there isn't a blue ink option).

However, please be warned that you probably shouldn't buy many extras if you want to stock up and use them later.

I bought a couple dozen of these pens, in all point/tip sizes last March (2012). In the past month, I've tried using them and they've all dried out except for one of the medium/broad point pens.

It's unfortunate that the cap or the body fail to keep the pens properly sealed. I'd suggest getting replacements every couple of months and not storing them for more than a few months, at most.

FYI, I did try a few things to "re-activate" the pens after trying to write with them on various types of paper. I soaked the tips of a couple of pens in 90% rubbing/isopropyl alcohol and then in some warm water, both for a few hours, testing the pens every 15 minutes, or so. Nothing helped.

Twenty plus pens worth nothing now...

Is bleeding through 90g Clairefontaine paper. Ink smells something awful. Nice black ink but I won't buy again.

  Great pen for everyday..., February 25, 2011
By egallaway - See all my reviews
Great pen for everyday use. Ink is smooth and dark and the pen glides effortlessly over paper. It smells a little like a Sharpie, but I don't mind. It's cheap too!

  Very nice gel pen, writes..., August 24, 2012
By indianasuriel - See all my reviews
Very nice gel pen, writes very dark line and it does smells a bit only if you come extremely close to it I really do not care about the smell at all because I cannot even smell it. What really bother me was that the extra fine is not that fine because the paper that I wrote on absorbed all the ink and the lines became like a 0.7mm or 1.00
