One pen body only. Needs to be customized with one pencil and two pen components (available separately).

The Sharbo X series has been a hit success among professionals in Asia. It's currently one of the most customizable multi-pens available on the market. With the Sharbo X, you have the freedom to choose almost every aspect of your multi-pen, from the pen body to the type of refill colors it has. You can choose your preferred pen body color, pencil lead size, ink color, ballpoint or gel ink type and pen tip size. For example, the diligent accountant might want a Zebra Sharbo X LT3 Matte Gray body with a 0.3 mm pencil, 0.4 mm Blue Black gel pen and 0.4 mm Carmine Red gel pen. The architect might prefer a Zebra Sharbo X CB8 Flash Silver body with a 0.7 mm pencil, 0.7 mm Ever Green ballpoint ink pen and stylus. Whoever you are, this is the pen that can be customized for your needs.

Each LT3 features a high-quality painted brass body and can hold one mechanical pencil component and two pen refill components. An eraser is included at the top of each pen.

Mechanical pencil components are available in: 0.3 mm, 0.5 mm and 0.7 mm.

This pen is a delight....
April 18, 2014

This pen is a delight. It appears to be made of metal throughout; I can't see whether it has any internal plastic parts or not, of course, but the barrel parts, clip, and the little screw-on cap over the eraser are all some light metal, aluminum I presume.

The point change mechanism is especially nice. It is smooth and not prone to sticking or jamming, as the gravity-operated mechanism on another multipen I once had was prone to do. One full twist of the upper barrel with respect to the lower will extend and then retract each of the three points in succession. Smooth, positive, and quick. I like.

In case it is not clear enough, this pen doesn't include pen refills or a pencil mechanism! You have to buy these separately and install them yourself when you get the pen. It's not hard; just unscrew the lower barrel from the rest of the pen, press your pencil mechanism of choice into Position 1 and two pen refills of your choice into theother two slots. They sell gel, ballpoint, ballpoint highlighter (by other manufacturers I think), and I believe even a stylus for your smartphone or tablet is available-- and you're good to go. It is well that it's easy to figure out how to do this, since the instructions are in Japanese and not much illustrated.

The point in position 1 has to be a pencil. The head of the pencil mechanism is not included with the pen, but the hollow tube for storing your lead supply is. Lack of a pencil mechanism is a good thing in a way as it allows you to choose .3, .5, or .7 mm diameter pencil modules. I chose .3. The lead tube will hold four or five of the .3 pencil leads.

For pen refills, Zebra themselves make many widths and colors, and if that is not enough any manufacturer's standard D1 size multipen refill will work, theoretically. However I have read (although I don't know from personal experience) that "some animals are more equal than others" and some brands of D1 refills won't fit quite correctly. I would advise reading up on this and using caution before you invest in large numbers of refills.

I skipped the gel refills because let's face it; a gel pen based on the little D1 size multipen refill is going to run out of ink very quickly. I got two Zebra ballpoint refills instead. They write with superior smoothness for a ballpoint, and being ballpoints should last reasonably well. My choices were a 1.0 width blue-black and a 1.0 width blood red. The blue black doesn't look very blackish to me, but it's a nice color and I'm happy with it.

This pen balances well, writes smoothly, operates smoothly, and even looks sharp. You could use it for heavy duty long document writing if you wanted. Even with a ballpoint refill installed, though, the ink supply is small enough you'll go through a lot of refills if you use the pen heavily. Therefore I think it is better suited for such things as short notes or clipping inside your personal notebook or day planner. You can color code your calendar, always have the right writing instrument on hand, and be the envy of all your gadget and pen geek friends!

(You don't have a personal notebook? For shame! Rule 1: Carry a pen and something to write on; a couple index cards are plenty. Rule 2, when you think of something you want to remember, write it down right then. Don't tell yourself you'll remember to write it down later, because you won't. Rule 3: There is no Rule 3.)

like the thin lt3's. The blue is a bit much but very striking. Fun to use but not the one i'd take to a c level meeting.

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 pen's weight feels great when writing.

The Cobalt Blue color may seem too much, but having several other colors, it is now my favorite. It's shiny and cool!

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!

Great pen with really smooth rotational mechanism. I'm really pleased with the customization when ordering. My only suggestion would be, if carrying in a pocket with change and other metal objects to consider the chrome finished option. The blue is showing some wear due to abrasion. The UK Wildcat blue still suits me well.

I love this pen! It's well-made, nicely weighted, comfortable, and writes beautifully. The options cover all my needs. Thinking of buying another so I can keep one at work and one with me elsewhere.
