We had a good turnout for our latest giveaway, and 16 of you nailed the answer. So, what is this great new product we are introducing this week? The Palomino Blackwing 602!!!

I picked the winner randomly from all those who guessed correctly, and Cynthia T. is going to receive the first Blackwing 602 samples that I send out.

Congrats Cynthia, and thank you to everyone who entered. The Palomino Blackwing will be available for purchase later this week, so get your sharpeners ready!

One of the new items released last week was the frequently requested Fisher Bullet Space Pen!

(Available Matte Black Body and Desert Tan Body not pictured.)

Available in several delicious colors, the Fisher Space Pen - Bullet model is another great addition to our pressurized pen selection.

The sealed ink cartridges inside these pens are pressurized at about 45 pounds per square inch. This gives you a ballpoint pen that will write over virtually any surface, and at any angle! (It will write upside down, underwater, over grease, and in extreme cold and hot temperatures.)

Another feature is that the ink refills themselves have an estimated shelf life of 100 years. (No, the pen itself will not last you for 100 years of daily writing, but you can buy multiple ink refills and store them for long periods of time without worrying about them drying out.)

This compact pen makes a perfect companion for your everyday writing needs, and will fit easily into your bag or purse, even your pants pocket. Clips are also available for all you pocket-carrying guys out there!

This is the pen that started it all.

Where were you when JetPens opened our virtual doors back in 2005? I don't know about you, but I was shopping at big box office supply stores, searching for that elusive "perfect pen". JetPens knew better though, and the Pilot Hi-Tec-C was the first pen imported and available at

What makes this pen so special? First of all, the three-point tip design allows the ball to rotate in a natural, frictionless manner. Secondly, the biopolymer gel ink used is designed to prevent the ink from bleeding. Combine these two things and this is why the Hi-Tec-C gives you precise, clean, and legible lines every time you use one.

The variety of ink colors available is impressive. There are currently over 35 in stock, with such unique shades as Pompadour Blue and Chestnut Bark Brown. I love grabbing a few different colors to write, edit, and highlight notes or other documents with.

Pilot has also done a great job expanding the product line over the years with the introduction of the multi pen Coleto, and the executive styled Cavalier. There is even a compact version of the Hi-Tec-C with the Slim Knock.

Over the years I have come to realize that there is no such thing as a perfect pen. The Pilot Hi-Tec-C is about as close as it gets, making it a true JetPens Classic.
