The Lakubo was made to give you an effortless writing experience. It is an incredibly smooth ballpoint pen. Moreover, the weight is very balanced, which has made it a favorite for pen spinners all around the world. Black, blue, and red ink colors in a 0.5 mm and 1.4 mm point size are available.

Best broad tip pen from what I have tried (Pilot BPS-GP, Papermate Silk, and
Papermate Profile). Reasons include:
- Ink is nice and dark
- Skips the least
- Does not goop
The Pilot BPS-GP comes in second, however, the ink was lighter and it skipped
more often than the Lakubo. The Papermate Silk had the best ink color but it
skipped and gooped up and the Papermate Profile had too light of an ink color
and did not write as smooth as the other 3.
Maybe I got a botched one? It writes with a drag - I feel like it's digging a
trench into the paper's surface. Ink comes out a fainter black than most pens
I've used. It may have to warm up but that's how it is out of the package.
i love the body of this pen...it's a shame it doesn't write better. the ink
stopped flowing after a few uses and, despite my best efforts, these pens (all
3) are pretty much useless. even when it *did* write, the line it produced was
quite weak, both blue and black.
