You are viewing a breakthrough in ink history, the development of a new ink type!! The new Emulsion ink from Zebra combines the best quality of a ballpoint and gel ink pen. It has the smoothness of an oil-based ballpoint ink pen but features the vibrant colors of a gel ink pen. That's an incredible new development. The Emulsion is supposedly even smoother than \"low friction\" ballpoint pens, is smear-proof and water resistant. The Zebra Surari is available in multiple tip sizes and colors.
This is one of my top "go-to" pens! It's great for everything- note taking,
signatures... It writes a thin, sharp, consistent line (which I love because my
lettering is so small); it does not bleed through, nor does it smudge (I am a
fast left-handed writer-so this is exactly what I look for in a pen). I believe
this pen has surpassed my love for my Hi-Tec Cs.
On my ongoing search for the perfect ball point pen to illustrate and ink with,
I tried the Zebra Surari. Being a huge Zebra fan, I was really hoping this one
would pull through, but for my purposes, it didn't.
- nice grip
- creates a think, but dark line
- light weight (could be a con depending on preference. I like lighter bodies)
- blots very quickly if writing on an angle; thus creating varied line widths.
- will sometime drag ink threads
The blotting is a huge con. The only way to prevent a blotting tip from
happening is if you always write at a perfect 90 degree angle to your surface.
Even then, ink threads can appear at any time if you don't clean the tip at
In the end, this is a perfect pen for simple note taking... but so is any other
fine tip pen you can purchase locally. Not worth the shipping costs you need to
shell out to get this pen online.
Love the pen, though it does blotch a little bit now and again. The ink is very
impressive. The clicker needs to be more stiff and of better quality, but that
isn't a deal breaker for me. The size and wait has a nice balance, but it
doesn't scream the usual quality that zebra usually puts forth. I'd grab it!
And yes...the .5 feels a little thin with a little more scratching than
anticipated. These fault force me to give this pen a 4.0. I'd like to see what
zebra has in store next for this Emulsion ink wonderment.
There are pens and then there are PENS. This is a PEN. The blue ink color is
vibrant. The writing is wonderfully smooth as you would expect from a Zebra pen.
But there is something powerful about this pen. Somehow it induces me to want to
