Excellent Pen. I had my old one over two years, with daily use in very rugged terrains. (Afghanistan) I was really bummed when I lost my Sharbo during an attack.

Super rugged, I played with it all the time. Twirling, dropping and constant twisting. Perfect pen for anyone dealign with offical documents, needing to do corrections, or just penciling in notes. I have another one now and look forward to owning future Zebra quality pens.

First off, let me start by saying that I am a big fan of the Uniball Jetstream line of pens. I really like the flow and look of their ink. However, I haven't found a Jetstream multipen that's quite right yet. I decided to try the Zebra SK-Sharbo+1 multipen to see if it could be hacked to take Jetstream refills.

The Sharbo pen looks really good, switches well between colors, and can be used in a professional environment without looking out of place. The grip is a harder rubber, which I prefer, but the diameter is ever so slightly larger than I like. It's close enough that I could probably get used to it. For the price, I am pleased with this pen.

While the Zebra ink does a reasonable job, I quickly pulled the pen apart to put in Jetstream multipen refills for the red and black ink. The Jetstream refill is just very slightly shorter than the Zebra ink, but it is the same diameter. To get the Jetstream inks to stick out the right distance, I cut roughly 1/8" off the end of an extra ink refill and slid that into the well of the Sharbo pen. Now a new Jetstream ink refill fits perfectly and functions just like the original ink. I now have a nicely functioning multipen with my favorite ink!

Unfortunately, I find that there is still a drawback to this pen. To retract the pen, you rotate the barrel to a position midway between two colors. This position poises one or two ink tips very close to the end of the pen, and in my shirt pocket I got ink stains on more than one occasion. If you look at the picture of the clear version of this pen, you will see what I mean about how close the ink tip is to the end when retracted. This isn't a slight against this particular pen, but rather a cautionary statement about rotary/twist selection pens in general. For this reason I don't use this as my regular pen.

I have three multi pens and I like this one the best. I use it daily. The ink/ballpoint is great - smooth line, doesn't get clogged, the ink lasts a long time. No mechanical issues, comfortable grip. The pencil works good too. I just order two more of these pens and some refills.

Is it plastic, or some type of metal?

I don't have it yet, and was wondering if it was worth it...
