I initially bought this in Kyoto when I found myself strapped for a pen, but
needed something small for easy carry in my breast pocket. It has a considerable
amount of weight to it for its size, which makes it feel sturdy. Ink flows out
smoothly with minimal to no blotting.
But be weary about its size—this pen is very slim. Almost to the point where
it might feel /too/ small. So if a larger pen body is your preference, this may
not be comfortable for you. Otherwise, it's a great product.

Ok, first off, this pen is SMALL. If you have ever seen a pilot G2 MINI, this is
actually smaller. I figured it was like the zebra telescopic or expandz which
become a full size pen after extending. This pen goes from about 3.5" to just
over 4" (with a normal pen being approximately 5.5"-6")
Carrying this pen in your pocket is a breeze. You don't even know it's there,
even in your back pocket. It's great to pull out, sign signatures on receipts,
etc. However, if you actually have to do serious writing (or something like
multi-page forms) you're gonna be in trouble. It's light. It's short. It's made
perfectly for someone who wants the absolute smallest pen that writes well. 4
stars not only because of it being so small, but also because finding refills
(let alone this pen) is near impossible.

This is the perfect pen to clip into the fold of a wallet. It also fits
perfectly inside the coiled wire binding of a 3 x 5" flip notepad.
I had been using the popular Inka pen in my wallet. It's slightly shorter than
this one, but much thicker. Extending the length also required unscrewing the
end cap and main cap, then reassembling the pen (like who's really going to do
all of that). This Zebra extends the tip and lengthens the body in one swift
I also have the True Utility Telepen, which is a lot shorter and thinner than
this pen, though it's actually longer than this pen when extended. The thinness,
however, makes it a little awkward to write with. Furthermore, it doesn't have a
clip, only a split ring. I keep that one on my keychain.
If you want the smallest pen possible, the Telepen would be it. This Zebra is a
good compromise - small enough to be unnoticeable in a wallet, yet large enough
to use comfortably. It's also cheaper than the others I've mentioned.

Same as the first two reviews, I bought this to carry in my wallet. The pictures
don't quite do it justice as far as size is concerned, you really need to see it
in person. I'm getting a few for some friends and a couple of other colors for

A nicely made small pen, which tucks into my folding wallet without any trouble.
The extend/retract mechanism is clever, and I appreciate the range of refill
sizes and colors (I dropped a 1mm in immediately).
