DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
The Pilot Multi Ball pen is highly recommended by mixed media artists for its rich colors and ability to write on various surfaces. It writes on plastic, paper, metal, glass, cloth, and more—thus its name "Multi Ball". You can write easily and quickly, thanks to the smooth gliding ball at the tip. The pen is great for crafts, artwork, school, and everyday tasks.

Mistakes can easily be fixed by wiping the ink with a wet cloth within six hours of writing. After the six hours has passed, the pen marks become permanent. What a great blend of both worlds!

This pen is also eco-friendly, composed of 77% recycled plastic.

This set includes 7 colors: Black, Blue, Green, Light Blue, Orange, Pink, and Red.

Note: if the pen does not write immediately on a non-paper surface, try writing on paper first.

These pens are the most awesome pens I know!
Unlike user queenkatherine, I can get them to write on plastic and paint no problem - the little user guide on the label says "try on paper before writing on certain surfaces" and that's what you gotta do - warm up the tip on a piece of paper before you write on certain smoots surfaces, and not press too hard!
The design of the pen is really awesome, with its logo an hommage to rock band metallica.
A must-have for versatile artists who don't like to be limited by the tools they use - with these I write and draw on absolutely any surfaces! At work, at home, on the back of photos, on my drinking bottle to write my name, on plastic cases, on glossy paper... I recommend writing or doodling on glossy paper with these.
One of the best tools ever... Also recommend using the medium and bold tip models if you can find them. The ink lasts forever and beats any other pen's inks...

Truly writes on plastic almost as well as on paper. Very good ink flow and ink density - not superb but a fair trade off considering the pen's versatility. I only wish they were retractable!

These pens will write...

These pens will write on hard surfaces like glass, if you write slowly. You may have to start the ink with a scrap of paper first. The colors are very good, although I wish there were a purple instead of the blue-black. They are not like paint or markers, the colors will not blend, but they can be used to decorate plastic and glass items. I use them to mark stuff in the lab where I work. I write my initials on glassware, pens and things like that to identify them. My tests have shown that acetone, alcohol and water will not wash this ink off of anything or out of anything after it dries, so it's the perfect lab marker for labeling and notebooks.

By the way, the cartridge fits perfectly in a Pilot G2 pen if you don't like separate caps. The ink will not dry out without a cap.

I suspect that Pilot is going to drop these, so get a few while you can. They are the ultimate graffiti pen.

Vivid colors, smooth line. A good gateway set of pens to give a friend that you're trying to drag along the path of JetPens addiction that youv'e been on for a while.

I have no idea why these are called "markers". They are fine tip, roller ball pens. I cannot get them to write on plastic - which is a bummer, since I intentionally bought them because I'm a mixed media artist. Granted, they are good pens - the ink flow is nice and smooth and the colors are true - but there are loads of "good" pens on the market. I specifically purchased these because of "their ability to write on multiple surfaces".

I bought these because I was looking for something to write over acrylic paint...whch, I've found out, is asking for something close to a miracle.

I can't get these to write on anything other than regular paper - I can't even get them to write on glossy card stock. Forget about glass and fabric...not gonna happen! (They will mark on fabric - but they skip.) Maybe it's just me, but I doubt it. I have a lot of experience with pens and markers, having spent years as an artist - and even longer drawing and doodling. These pens are nice - but pass on them if you are looking for something to write on a variety of surfaces. There are other pens out there (at reasonable prices) that will do a much better job.

I would rate these a 2.5 out of 5. Points given for the ink flow, the true color, and the smoothness of the ink. Points deducted for not living up to the claims made in the description (which is all I have to go on, since I can't read the Japanese printed on the package).
