This product is a very impressive size considering it fits 2 pens and 1 pencil
and it's got a nice solid twist mechanism. Unlike the Cross Tech3, there is no
notch in between tips to keep everything safely retracted (the Sharbo also lacks
this feature). I actually love the clear plastic because it shows you how these
kinds of slim twist multi-pens work. The bad part about the plastic is that the
screw-on cap over the eraser can crack if it's tightened too much. The other bad
part is that over time the ink may write on the inside of the barrel tip (which
is visible because of the clear plastic), making it very unattractive.
The ink in these pens is actually quite good considering it's a regular
ballpoint ink and not a hybrid ink like Jetstream. It's not super-black, but it
does its job well. I would compare it quite favorably to a Zebra ballpoint. I
love the 0.7mm tip on ballpoints, great balance between small text and
readability. And it's a D1 refill, so you can use other D1 refills like the
Zebra gel ones for the Sharbo line. I don't actually use the pencil, and my
ideal multi-pen would be this size but just have three ink colors instead of a
pencil, but apparently nobody in the world makes such pens, as far as I know.
Highly recommend this pen for people who want an excellent multi-pen that's
affordable and good-looking.
