I can't use any other ballpoint pen or gel pen. The smoothness is incomparable. I had to give this one to my mother though because she liked it so much, too! Luckily, I have backups.

I bought these for my two brothers (an engineer and an engineering student) who both do not share my obsession of writing instruments and notebooks. They love this pencil so much that they won't let me get my girl cooties on it--mature aren't they? I have the Alph-Gel Kuru Toga which uses the same rotating mechanism, and I can't bring myself to use any other mechanical pencil.

This is one of my first fountain pens (the other is the white Kaweco Sport with the EF nib). I bring this pen with me to lectures and lab because if I were to lose it or have it stolen from me, it would bring me less grievance because its only $3.30! I plan to use it as an eye dropper pen after it's ink cartridge is used.

This is one of my first fountain pens (the other was the disposable Platinum Preppy with the 03 nib), which I chose over a Lamy Safari. Kaweco is lesser known than the Lamy so it satisfies my indie complex. I preferred the Kaweco because I could convert it into an eye dropper pen (like the Preppy) and it's pocket size is very cute. I have filled it with Noodler's Bulletproof Black, and both work harmoniously together in my Clairefontaine journal, Hand Book sketchbook, and Rediform lab notebook. Its size was actually very surprising to me, but I have very small hands so I could even use this pen without the cap on the end.

My classmates and colleagues admired it even though they were unfamiliar with fountain pens (we're all USA residents).

The white and gold look very elegant and beautiful; my only qualm about its design is that while capped and not in use, it looks like a feminine product. If this would really bother you, I suggest buying the gold pen clip to more visually define the white Kaweco as a pen.

Really very convenient to just carry around this pen and be ready to paint anywhere. Of course that means I might become that chick who randomly paints around campus...

I ordered 9 of these colors separately a few days ago just to try the pens out (I'm very cautious about going all out just based on a few reviews). I received them today and was surprised at how nicely these pens write. The ink isn't as pigmented as some inks are, but I like them that way.

As for erasability, the pens are practically perfect. It depends on the paper written on, too.

Guess who wants to buy the 24 pack!

I didn't buy any of the sets, but I bought 10 colors. This green made the cut - it's a very nice veridian color.

I'm using this brush all the time for my boldly outlined drawings. I don't have to use masking fluid as much. Thanks JetPens!
