So far no complaints about this pencil...its a neat light weight pencil thats
easy to write with.
The only incovience with this pencil is that the eraser is a unique shape, so
its not readily available at a supply store.
I've been using this pen for about a week now and it suits me well. No major
cons of the pen...Its light weight, simple and write in neat fine lines. The
slight groove on the flat side of the pen is convient for me...it give a little
resting place for my finger when I'm writing.
The only issue I've had with the pen (reason for docking a star) is that
sometimes the ballpoint will retract when I bring it to the paper...and I'm not
applying THAT much force that it would retract and my hand is no were near the
button to retract the ballpoint.
I bought this pencil After purchasing and orange Zebra 2way 1000. I liked that
pencil and I liked the look of this white one, so I thought, What the heck.....
However after using both pencils daily, I'd use my Zebra 2way 1000 over this
white one any day.
This feels cheap at times, I'm afraid I might break it...whereas when I use my
Zebra 1000, I feel like I could write a novel and it would survive till the
So if you want a sturdy, nice, pencil that you want to LAST, get one of the
I've been using this pencil for a while now and I love it.
The weight feels just right in my hand and it write very smoothly. I sometimes
forget the 'Shaker' feature and forget to use it, but its a neat feature to the
MY only teeny gripe with the pencil is the whole eraser mechanism is kinda
weak....there is a lot of play in the mechanism holding the eraser. When I try
to erase something, the eraser just isn't sturdy, it wobbles a lot and I end up
having to eraser harder. In the end I just dig out my Art Gum and keep that
handy instead of using the pencil's eraser. I'm assuming this is happening
because of the 'Shaker' feature, but I could be wrong.
OTHER then that, the pencil feels very durable, comfortable and i like the
orange color alot, I just ordered another one today...=)
This was one of the first Fountain pens I ever used. I wanted to try something
inexpensive in case I didn't like using a Fountain pen, so I got this and 2
others. Overall this pen was great, nice ink flow, fun design,
inexpensive.......until I had used it for just one week. The threads on the
barrel to replace the cartridge sorta striped out(or the thread was incorrect or
the cap 'held' too securely...something was wrong) and EVERY time I would take
the cap off the pen to use the pen, the bottom of the pen (nib and surrounding
plastic) would come with it.
Its not like I was hard on the pen or spent the entire week taking the cap on,
putting it on, taking the cap off....etc... I rotated between the other 2 pens.
After a week I had pretty much gave up on the pen because of how annoying it was
to have to put it back together everytime I used it.....
I've got one of these pens and one in black. For some reason my Sepia pen is
terrible. I can never get a good flow of ink and its sometimes scratchy no
matter how i hold it. My black Copic pen works perfect...but I think I got a dud
Overall its pretty good....
The ink flows nicely, no dry spots yet, feels good in your hand....however the
ink does bleed thru sometimes.
My only dislike about the pen is its aesthetics....I can't get over how much it
looks like a sharpie marker. When I first saw these in a store thats what I
thought they were, untill I took the cap off and realized it was a fountain pen.
