Oh Boy, My 3rd JetPens Review!
Everything they said in the write up is true! This is one classy looking and
feeling pencil. I got it to go with my collection of fountain and calligraphy
pens, which are all different shades, hues, textures, shininess and materials of
slightly differing blackness. I Love's my black! Why do I love my black? Because
I've unfortunately, or fortunately, found out that any color to be found on my
writing implements will distract me quicker than a traffic accident. Leading to,
well you guessed it, another tragic accident. I really don't like accidents, of
any sort, especially when it comes to my scribblings and doodlings.
This pencil fits in perfect with my necessarily preferred design aesthetic.
Black baby, black! With a hint of blingy chrome to counter balance the glossy
black of the barrel and the slightly hesitant matte black of the rubber grip and
the ribbed texture of the lead hardness indicator.
Now when it comes to the feel of this pencil it is pretty middle of the road,
and that's a good thing. It's also top heavy, so for you pencil pushers who like
the weight in the grip area of your pencils this may not be a pencil for you.
But for those who like to toss their lines onto paper the extra weight in the
barrel will let you get those lines out with a flourish.
I don't know why, but if pirates carried mechanical pencils this would
definitely be one of their top choices. So plunder thee some paper and spin ye
yer yarn, for soon the sweet claret shall flow, and ye'll be tellin' no more of
yer tales of unrestrained fancy.
