The only negative aspect...
July 26, 2012
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
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.
