The main feature of these pens, other than price (you need not cry too hard if one goes missing) is their ability to become eyedropper pens with a #5 washer available at any "hardware" store like Lowes or Ace Hardware. The instructions are posted elsewhere on this web site.

Just be sure to dab a bit of vaseline in the threads and you have a good writing pen that lasts literally for weeks or months without refilling.

As a college instructor I have one in each of four colors, black, brown, red and green, for everyday use in marking, editing, etc. Superb pens if used this way. Of course their writing feel is limited by their material and cost - but for a couple of bucks what do you want? Mont Blanc??

It\'s a nice pen for the price, that\'s for sure. But I like the PILOT Petit1 better.
A big down side for me is the non-removable bar code and label. So it\'s not so
esthetically pleasing, but hey, it\'s ok for the $. The ink is a mid to light green color.

Good for journaling. Can not go wrong with the price, too.

Maybe I got a bad pen, but I can't get this to write consistently for more than a single line. If left sitting for more than 30 seconds, it won't start writing without a lot of work. I do like the color, though the green is lighter than I anticipated. But that doesn't really matter if I can't get the ink to come out of the pen.

I bought this because I had two fine Preppies that I bought several months ago, and I've been pretty happy with them. I've had this medium one for just about two weeks and only used it five or six times, and today the cap split when I was putting it back on the pen. For some reason, the cap didn't fit the medium Preppy as well as it did the fine ones; it was always more difficult to take off and put on the pen, and now it's broken after a lot less use than I got out of the two fine nib ones.
