Pen looks and feels great. My only problem I cant control the selections of the
Pencil, BLK ink, or Red ink. I click and it does not always give me what I want.

When I got the pen I...
, March 15, 2011
When I got the pen I was excited until I saw NewellRubermaid (not that their a
bad Mfg.) on the box. They have a factory about 2 miles from my home in
Maryville Tn. (is it really a Japanese mfg. pen) Im sure NewellRubermaid is a
global company though, I'd hate to think I paid 30.00$ for a pen I could have
bought in my home town. Pental now makes a replica .05 pencil only (not a combo
pen) which can be bought at your local Staples for around 4.00$ each. The finish
on the Tikky 3 in 1 pen seamed to dull rather quickly. The mechanical function
of the springs are very solid, but the more often then not the pen color or
pencil I'm wanting to use does not always come out correctly when I rotate the
pen to desired location or writing tool I need at that moment. The feel of the
pen is awesome, the ink writes smoothly but not on all paper surfaces
(especially my journal or daily planer) Would I purchase this pen again YES but
not for 30.00$ I use it daily and work through the small technical issues, maybe
with more use it will function more smoothly. I have had it for about 30 days.

Bought the pen/pencil combo for around 25 dollars.
It cracked easily after a few months from screwing and unscrewing the writing
side to put in lead.
The rubbery siding for your fingers started to peel after a couple of months.
The pens have a smooth nice writing feel to them, which I was surprise.
The lead seems to break easily in the holding container so you always have to
replace the lead.
To get the correct writing instrument to come out you have to have that color or
pencil facing upwards (there is an indicator at the top).
The eraser is a complete joke. You erase a couple times and it then becomes
After 6 months of using this, the button-cover to the release (pressed so the
pen/pencil wont be sticking out anymore) came off; the tiny ball-bearing fell
out and at that point the Rotring TIkky became useless.
This pen should be less than 15 dollars or to get people to buy it around 10
dollars. I don't plan on buying it again unless it is on sale for 10 dollars.
