Meet the new slim, sleek and oh so detailed partner to your work life. The Sharbo is one of Zebra's most popular multi-pen line and this particular Sharbo focuses on life's finer points. It is a very rare multi pen that actually features a 0.4 mm pen and a 0.3 mm pencil. The combination is quite unique, it's a multi-pen that one could only find in Japan. You won't even find any bulging buttons on the pen. It features a slender body that utilizes a twist mechanism to switch between a fine ballpoint pen and a mechanical pencil. It is an elegant accompaniment to your workplace style. Individuals who like fine point pens will fall in love with the Sharbo Smartline. As the name suggests, it is for those who like their things sharp and smartly in place. Don't forget the 0.3 mm lead refills for your pencil! Black, blue and silver body colors available.

What a fine, slim and useful pen! :-)
I will return to Japan this Spring, and I plan on buying more pens like this.

paper of similar smoothness, but the quality of the line decreases dramatically

ordered. I think it's just the nature of such an ultra-fine ballpoint. Sad but
true. If I knew then what I know now, I wouldn't have dropped the $21.50 on it.
