The CB8 Series are probably...
The CB8 Series are probably the best looking, best constructed, most sexy, and just plain awesome multi-pen. I bought one of each and use slightly different configurations in both. I absolutely love them.

Pros:
Look, Feel, Function, Quality, & Options

Cons:
Price

Other Thoughts:
I am extremely pleased with my CB8 Sharbo X's. The massive options for compatible D1 refills is awesome. There is nothing more to consider if you should buy this multi-pen other than its price tag. To put the pen in "off" mode I switch it between pencil and a pen. At first It seemed odd there was no "off" mode but I have not had ANY issues using the in-between as a closed position.

On Zebra Sharbo Refills:
"Blue Black" refills are lighter than one would think and "Bordeaux" is pretty close to "blood red". I would recommend that anyone having issues with longevity to try oil based and/or finer points. I have gel in my Grey CB8 and Oil in my Silver CB8. I have some emulsion refills coming soon from Jetpens, but I cannot comment on them until they arrive.

This became an instant favorite the first time I used it.
I have large hands and this is very comfortable for me to use.

Only con might be price, but you know what they say...

"You get what you pay for".

Highly recommended and excellent 2.0mm leaholder.

At first I bought this as a unique marvel of pencil technology. It ended up being my "go-to" for anything written and for calculations. It feels well built and sturdy. I am very happy with it and would recommend it.

This lives up to it's reputation. It is smaller than it looks. I use Boxy every day. Low mess, no smudging, no nonsense. Boxy delivers it's promised "simple life style". I Love it.

So far it is quite nice. I will admit I am mildly concerned about the longevity of the twist locking mechanism. I have no issues to report thought. That said, this is one cool and good looking pencil. (I like this one better than the silver version which I also own)

Higher end of the scale in terms of weight, quality, and of course most notably the price. It has been a great addition to my collection. I own the .35mm and .5 black variants.
