Stabilo Bionic Worker Roller Ball Pen - 0.5 mm - Black Ink - STABILO 2018/46
  i really enjoy writing..., February 15, 2012
i really enjoy writing with the stabilo bionics. The ink doesn't come out totally solid like most liquid ink pens, and that's nice. There's real character in how the ink trails.

The handle is also very comfortable to hold, and the protruding dot on the barrel prevents the pen from rolling off uneven surfaces.

The pen also looks so damn good. The rubber body also feels so damn good.

I recommend.
Kuretake Fudegokochi Brush Pen - Regular - KURETAKE LS1-10
  i really like this pen...., February 15, 2012
i really like this pen. i'm going to pick up a few more.
i haven't had the leaking problems with this pen.

the ink applies relatively wet but dries real fast.
nice solid construction and good pocket clip.

i own one of the older models with the dark grey barrel and clear blue clip. and it has got to be one of my favorite models ever. the ink is incredibly smooth and dark; the grip is super comfortable to hold; and the pen's overall construction is freakin' fantastic. barrel's plastic is nice and thick, the clip is sturdy, and the grip is nice and firm, without the gooey feeling

i looove this pen.
Sakura Pigma Brush Pen - Black Ink - SAKURA XSDK-BR-49
  these are pretty good,..., August 23, 2010
these are pretty good, but the nibs aren't the best. the many other japanese brush pens on jetpens have better nibs than the sakura's. my sakura pigma brush pen's nib is beginning to fray, and i don't even press hard. i didn't have it for long either. it might have just been my pen, but this sums up my feelings towards it. aside from that, the ink is nice and the tip is good for those fine strokes/lines. there are finer, but this is pretty good.
Kaweco Classic Sport Fountain Pen - Medium Nib - Clear Body - KAWECO 10000003
  the kaweco "Sport Classic"..., August 23, 2010
the kaweco "Sport Classic" line of pens is just too awesome for words. super compact and real smooth writing you can ask for anything more.

one thing i'm iffy about is the eyedropper conversion.. even with silicon, the pressure inside the barrel still pushes a considerable amount of ink to make a mess inside the cap and around the nib.
other than that, a fantastic pen!
Zebra Sharbo X ST3 Pen Body Component - Black - ZEBRA SB14-BK
  great pen. diameter is..., August 23, 2010
great pen. diameter is great for my (x)large hands and zebra ink is always nice and smooth.
a few things i'd change:
1. grippier coating
2. maybe make it even wider in diameter
3. in addition to #2, i'd add a "stop" click
4. same materials in terms of construction as the LT3 series, with the brass construction and whatnot.
Pilot Prera Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - Ivory Body - PILOT FPR-3SR-I-F
  overall, this is a real..., August 23, 2010
overall, this is a real nice pen to hold. on the downside, i put in some purple noodler's ink + converter and it doesn't flow nice at all. i need to pick me up some pilot ink!
also, i think i would much prefer the medium or bold nibs, because this fine is just too fine!
Pelikan Pelikano Starter Pen P460 - A Nib - Red Body - PELIKAN 926824
  i really like the nib..., August 23, 2010
i really like the nib on these pelikan fountain pens. at first, the barrel didn't screw on so well, but after a little tweaking, i was able to hit a sweet spot and it felt real good. i also love this colorway. if pelikan could make the barrel a little thicker, it would be sooo nice!
Pentel Tradio EnerGel Combo Gel Ink Pen - Nature Matte Body - 0.7 mm - Brown Body - Black Ink - PENTEL TRL92E-A

......CONS:
and the sticker on the cap leaves residue.
though it can be removed, it's a bit tedious to remove.
Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip DX Gel Ink Pen - 1.0 mm - White - PENTEL K230-W
  it writes smoothly, but..., December 2, 2009
it writes smoothly, but leaves these kind of blobs as it writes. the ink doesn't dry very fast. i don't know if it's supposed to be that way though. i do like writing with it though. the blobs add this kind of personal touch.
