The Zebra Fortia 300 ballpoint pen has a remarkably attractive and sophisticated look, yet it is very affordable. Its simple, elegant design and sturdy mechanism convey a sense of high quality. The body has a simple slim form and a beautiful glossy finish. The matching grip is softer to the touch and has a matte finish, yet coordinates perfectly with the glossy body. Taking the pen everywhere with you is easy, thanks to its simple profile and clip.

The pen comes with oil-based black ballpoint ink, and refills are available in additional colors.

I bought the Fortia 300...

I bought the Fortia 300 because I've long been a fan of the Zebra F-301. Compared to that, the Fortia is a slightly weightier pen; the rubberized grip and metal body give it nice substance, without making it too heavy, and it is still slim (a virtue, in my mind). It feels sturdy, especially for the price point, and I can see keeping this pen around for many years. Aesthetically, the cheapness of the pen does show in some places - for example, the metal cone covering the tip seems to have not been polished well before plating - but that is a minor factor.

Where this pen suffers is in the quality of the ink. It is somewhat desaturated and prone to skipping, and is only marginally better than mass-market American ballpoint inks. The 0.7 mm tip just exacerbates these tendencies. If this body could accept a more saturated refill (something like Zebra's Surari pens), I would happily swap it in and use this as my go-to pen.
