Pentel Sharp Kerry Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Gray Body - PENTEL P1035-ND
  The Kerry is a classic..., January 31, 2014
The Kerry is a classic Japanese mechanical pencil -- compact, innovative, understated, and reliable. I recall buying a Kerry as a highschool student in Tokyo...that was back in 1965. Today's Kerry is wellmade and the plastic barrel is serviceable, although Iwould prefer an all-metal body. Some may fined the cross-hatched chrome-colored ring around the middle a little too much "bling" but the ability to advance the lead when the cap is posted by simply clicking on the button is still, I believe, unique to the Kerry. It's an "all-day" mechanical pencil.
Uni Pure Malt Wood Grip 2 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - Navy Body - Limited Edition - UNI MSXE3100507.9
  The Uni-Ball Pure-Malt..., May 23, 2012
The Uni-Ball Pure-Malt is a good pen for the price. I have purchased three so far...one a navy Limited Edition. I use that one every day. The inks (black, blue, and red) are vivid and flow easily. I haven't noticed any skipping yet. I would like to see Uni-Ball produce a "3+1" version and utilize the fourth slot inside the pen body. The clip could be improved but it works well. I'd prefer a metal one along the lines of the Pilot Dr. Grip 4+1 multi-pen. I like the form and it fits well in my hand when I've got a lot of writing to do. The fact that the upper portion of the barrel is plastic with a metalicized finish is fine.
Zebra Clip-On 1000 4 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - Black Body - ZEBRA B4SA2-BK
  There are five different..., April 10, 2012
There are five different multi-pens in my pen cup at work. I love the Zebra Clip-On Multi for its sturdiness, the good-quality clip, and the design of the finger-grip. The fact that it is a plastic body pen doesn't detract from its value, in my opinion. It's well-balanced and the chrome appointments and various finishes look well and last without showing much wear. My only complaint is the spotty quality of the refills...red particularly. They have a tendency to skip more than my Dr. Grip 4+1, for example. I think you get your money's worth in a ballpoint multi-pen with the Zebra Clip-On Multi. If I have some time, I'll try to swap out the Zebra refills for something compatible with a more consistent ink flow.
Pilot Dr. Grip 4+1 4 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - Black Body - PILOT PBKHDF1SF-B
  Pilot Dr. Grip 4+1 is..., April 10, 2012
Pilot Dr. Grip 4+1 is a good value for the money. It compares favorably with Coleto Hi TEC-C, the Zebra Clip-On Multi, and the Uni Style-Fit Meister. I appreciate the ability its compatibility with the refills from its other competitors. All the mechanisms are well-engineered and stand up to daily use. The finish is durable; the look under-stated. If you are partial to regualr ball pen refills in a multi-pen, Dr. Grip is worth trying.
Uni Pure Malt Wood Grip 2 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - Dark Brown Grip - UNI MSXE3100507.22

I have purchased two of the Uni-ball Pure Malt series and been satisfied with both. True, the upper portion of the pen body is plastic...but the description accurately and honestly calls it "metallicized plastic"...or words to that effect. I like the smoothness of the ink and vibrancy of the black and red. I have found these to be a good pen for the money. Certainly comparable to my 5-color Dr. Grip 4+1 or my Zebra Clip-On Multi.

A very sturdy pen ideal for every-day use. Being able to use Uni-Fit refills is a definite advantage. I, too, prefer a 0.7 to 1.0 mm tip. I have at least one each of Pilot's multi-pen competitors and Dr. Grip is No. 1 right now.The 4+1 configuration meets all my needs. Unbeatable value for the money!
