Exactly what I wanted....

Exactly what I wanted. I have both the original Palamino Blackwings and the Pearl Blackwing pencils and they're both so soft they frustrate me when I'm writing, because I have to sharpen them every half a page (quarter page for the originals... but they're amazing when I'm drawing, so I live with that when I'm drawing, but they are not a writing instrument). These are perfect for *writing*. They actually mark with the same shade as the original Blackwings, which is remarkable to me, and erase just as cleanly. I've always loved the erasers on the other pencils and these are the same, so I can use my refills happily. They are quite smooth, too, with just a bit more resistance than the original Blackwings, but are definitely smoother than Ticonderogas or Black Warriors.

This is far far far better...

This is far far far better than the previous version of this pen. The point is smooth and writes well, and the flow is perfect for the tip. The old one used to just run out of ink all the time, but this is wonderful. I bought it as a tester for all the more obscure inks, so that I could see if they would stain, but this might become my every day writer. The small size allows it to fit easily into my purse, and the inexpensive price allows me to be unafraid of using and/or losing it. I'll see if they're tougher than the Preppy pens (I keep breaking the caps on those and having to toss them) and they may well replace all my Preppy needs.

Exactly what I'd hoped it would be. Smooth, super fine, tough enough tip to use very fine control on for Zentangles. The ink is smooth, dark, and lies exactly where I put it. It's wonderful for drawing with.

Flexible, beautiful line, and just an okay amount of ink holding.

I love this ink. The blue is deep, rich, and lovely, and the shimmer of silver over it is subtle, but definitely there. I am using it in my cheaper fountain pens, as I don't know if the sparkle will do anything to my more expensive ones, but nothing bad has happened, yet. It's gorgeous. And it works beautifully in my dip pens, too.

The lead is great! but the box is too long for the length of the leads in it. It's just kind of weird that there's so much more box than length of lead. It's cool looking? Kind of? But interesting use of space. Maybe they use the same box for longer leads somewhere?

It is super fine. And it writes great. The tines on mine are perfectly set, so that it just writes a smooth, super thin line continuously. A single cartridge of ink is going to just last me forever.... I have always loved the solidity of the Preppy pens and this is no different.

I love the depth of color on this, and the tip itself is glass smooth and lovely to write with. There isn't a lot of ink in these, but that's okay, given that I have three other writing instruments in the same body, and it's so fun to choose.
