Horrible buying experience with Jetpens this time. Last month, I ordered this
pen and received it few days later (fast shipping as always). Unfortunately, I
got a pen showing some scratches (oh no, not again). I don't want to believe
that they sent me a pen that was already used. I rather think that Jetpens
needs to find a better way to store their inventory in the warehouse (to prevent
them from rubbing together). Anyway, the pen was not acceptable to me. I
requested RMA and processed the return. I had a simple and smooth return with
Jetpens before (a pair of $ 6.75 scissors by USPS first class). However, I
failed to consider that Rotring 500 0.7 mm is so popular on eBay, and I still
sent it by USPS first class. I have never lost mail before. What bad luck, my
Rotring 500 package vanished after three weeks of waiting and emailing Jetpens
back and forth. I even attached my mailing receipt from UPSP to them. Jetpens
said they cannot do anything unless I can provide a tracking number.
Sigh....... I learned my lesson here.
The pen only works great on some good quality matte paper. It does not work
well on some glossy paper. You better test it on the paper first. This may
help you decide which type of paper will best suit your project's needs. Write
slowly and let it completely dry then you will get a slightly raised effect. If
you select the right paper types, this pen will perform beautifully.
This is a very durable and versatile pencil case. I bought a navy case and a
black case for each of my sons. They really like it. I even bought a khaki
green case (a very rare color for this model) for myself from another seller a
few weeks later. I highly recommend Nomadic PE-08 pencil cases.
I bought this pencil for my 10 years old son. He loves it, but, at the end, my
high school boy took it away. Very good quality (made in Japan) with an
individual KOKUYO package. I will definitely buy more.
I ordered this pair of scissors due to so many good reviews. I choose creamy
white color. Very nice color indeed. I thought I was going to love it.
However, I returned the scissors right after opening it even without trying it.
The edges of both blades show some dents. I would rather pay the shipping fee
to return it. Poor quality makes me do not want to keep it.
