The utility of these...
July 25, 2012
The utility of these things is great. Simple to use, bright, and erasable - what more could you ask for as a college student with rented books?

I bought a multi-pack of these from a local office supply store and unfortunately after only about 2 weeks of use they're all drying up! I will use one and after about 100 pages of various highlighting tasks, it will no longer be visible because it has dried up. Start using a new one, and another 100 pages in, it too has become too light to see.

I thought perhaps extended use in my hand had faded the ink due to heat, so I popped it in the freezer overnight then let it thaw out. No go, still unable to use it because it leaves so little ink on the page. These have simply been stored on their sides on my work table, not in a jar with the ink away from the tips.

Suffice to say, this is a disappointment.

Verified Purchase
I have tried using fountain pens before and never had much luck. I was skeptical if a left handed nib would make a difference, but wow. No sticking and it fits your hand! I have smaller hands and it is perfect for an adult too!
