Out of all my pens, this...
Out of all my pens, this is not a pen I would write with often. I like this pen it doesn't skip, and it's good for 0.5. It's smooth, but not to smooth to where it would like just slide across the page if you don't hold it correctly. It would be a good pen to write fast with because it is really smooth.

The signature Jetstream...
Verified Purchase
The signature Jetstream ink is so rich and dark, it's almost like a gel pen but it's a ballpoint, which I LOVE!! The colors are so cute too.

HOWEVER...

It skips sooo much, it's driving me crazy. I keep having to retrace over all the skipping whenever I write notes. The 1.0 Jetstream RT I got elsewhere isn't as bad as this 0.5 but there is skipping, nonetheless.

I really really wanted to like these pens. I really did. All I can say is, good thing I only bought one.

2 stars for the dark gel-like ink and cute barrel.

hm... every review that...
hm... every review that i've read says that this pen is completely skip-free. in order for mine not to skip, i have to make sure the paper is completely flat on the surface i am writing on.

pro: the ink. oh, the ink! it is delicious and black.
aesthetically beautiful. most japanese pens are
light, precise.

con: (skips... a lot)
not archival-safe. put a drop of rubbing alcohol on it, you'll see.
