| I waited quite a bit...
, May 6, 2013
I waited quite a bit before writing this review because I wanted to see how well
this pen performed after several months of use. All of the other reviews I found
often spoke about the immediate days. And for such an expensive pen, I felt it
was sort of a shame no one talked about it on the long run. Well, I ordered this
pen back in February and I must say I am impressed.
At first, I took care of this pen with my life. I had never spent nearly 50$ on
a pen before. But, the pen's metallic body holds quite a bit. After the first
month, the pen suffered its first drop, damaging the paint job, leaving it with
a terrible scar on the cap. Yet, it lived on. As time went on, I dropped it more
often and I became careless with it. It went from a novelty pen to a warrior and
it has yet to let me down. The pen takes the beating. Sure, the paint job does
get scratched easily, making it look a little ugly, but the functionality makes
up for it. The only aspect I want to negatively criticize is the clip. The thing
doesn't hold up too well. After just two weeks, it began to feel loose, which
makes me not pin it on my shirt as I usually do.
Moreover, this pen accepts all the universal D1 refills and not just the Zebra
ones (although those work great). I primarily use the Pilot Hi-Tec-C 0.4 D1
refill, which you can conveniently buy here. They do fit a little loose,
depending on the brand, but they don't seem to fall out.
If you buy this pen, you will not regret it.
| My executive multipen,...

My executive multipen, the gel inks doesn't last long because their cartridges
are very short, the mechanism for switching from one component to the other is
soft (no clicking) and precise, but as others have said, there isn't a position
where the point is retracted completely, only between positions. Then pen is a
bit heavy and short but acceptable for medium writing sessions or sporadic note
| I have a small collection...

I have a small collection of the Zebra Sharbo pens and the LT3 is my favorite,
for sure. They are versatile multifunction pens which have superb build quality.
The metal body feels durable and the pens' size and weight feel great when
The Black LT3 is very cool and looks badass in the hand. It's finish is kind of
shiny, metallic. Don't be expecting a matte finish. If that's what you're
looking for, check out the gray model instead.
I like using the 0.5mm pencil and gel pens, specially the blue and orange ones.
I have a couple of other multipens, but the Zebra Sharbo LT3 is by far the best
one I know. Highly recommend this model!
| I love this pen even...
, October 26, 2011
I love this pen even though I mainly use it as a pencil. If you plan on taking
a lot of notes with it, i'd suggest using the pencil part of it. It'll save you
a lot of money in the long run. If not, i recommend stocking up on a lot of
ink. I went through my black ink in just under 2 weeks.
| DO NOT BE FOOLED THIS...

DO NOT BE FOOLED THIS PEN IS MUCH MORE BLACK IN PERSON. At first I wanted the
silver version of this pen but I read some reviews and was worried that the
paint would chip off. I deeply regret that choice because I think the silver one
would look SOOO much cooler, but other than that the pen works flawlessly.
