Great item to make simple items look better without a corner. I have already gifted this twice.

Love this pencil. It's not perfect but great for travel, or use where space is limited. I had to train my toddler on how to use it, releasing and selecting lead. But everyone has mastered its delicate selection use of colors. I have to hide it so it stays with me instead of their book bags.

Gifted to my daughters and they use them for homework away from home. So good that I have already recommended this sharpener to two different parents. I had to purchase a couple more for this school year.

The weight, feel and look of this pen are solid. The nib looks very futuristic and caught my daughters attention. I loaded it with Bernanke blue noodlers ink for quick drying (being a lefty). I found the fine nib near the 0.7 mm line thickness, which is near fine in my considerations. But when I am writing the intial spot on a letter it leaves a small dot. It happens on great, good and even worse on poor paper. I have a picture comparing the same words to a preppy fountain pen and there is a big difference in the quality of my words on paper. I like the pen but I wouldn't give it as a gift to a first time fountain pen user. I will use it but not as an every day pen like my Pilots, TWSBI, or Kaweco pens. I think a 3.5 star rating is more appropriate but looks shouldn't outweigh the reason for the purchase.

Love it! I have been using the Graphgear 500 0.7mm daily for years and wanted an upgrade. The new TWSBI retractable tip is great and easy to carry. I compare it to my Pentel Kerry for office and pocket use but it's more of drafting pencil style. I love the super long eraser that doesn't make you regret using it more than once in a while. The packaging is superb as it has extra long erasers and extra lead. This is a great gifting item for anyone who loves and needs a quality drafting or office pencil. My new everyday notes, drawing and journaling instrument.

I love thin writing pens. Typically this excludes fountain pens. But this Pilot Prera puts down a very fine 0.4 line. It is smooth, fast and doesn't bleed or smear (as a lefty). I use the 01 OHTO Graphic Liner and the Hi-Tec C pens and they produce the same line/thickness as this Fine Prera. If you want and enjoy fine lines this is the perfect, lower price pens. The size, weight and feel makes it an all day, everyday pen. Well worth the purchase.

For years I have been an avid Pilot Hitec-C user. This is the only everyday note taking pen that I consider better than the Hitec-C. I found the pen to last longer, is more durable and the line thickness the same as the 0.5mm Pilot versions. Also the ink feels wet going on all papers, but doesn't bleed nor feather on any paper. For the price and size this is a great pen that has many line thicknesses to choose from.

Outstanding pencil in every way. Very low price, easy one click motion makes this perfect for children and adults. Perfect lead size at 0.9mm, no eraser but I haven't found a mechanical pencil with an adequate eraser so why bother. We use a separate one anyways. A great gift, plenty of colors to pick from. This is a great add-on if you are $3 or less toward the free shipping.

I was excited to hear about the Evernote and Moleskine digital note taking combo but the higher price for a notebook and the pay to use app after 3 months bothered me to really want the item. After using this less expensive alternative i love how it works. The CamiApp is free and outstanding. Very easy to use and setup. I was able to create a digital note and send it to my gmail, evernote, gmail calendar, and phote album from my iphone in just a couple minutes after opening the jetpens package (which took only two days from west to east coast for free shipping). I applaud jetpens for finding this notepad to digital option and i will soon be getting the larger version and enjoying my ability to digitize, tag, archive and share my drawings and notes easier than i can with the older methods. This is well worth the money to try this technology proving that the pen is mightier and still relavant in our computer typing world of today.

I rate this more as a 3.5 than a 4 but having two lead colors in one is the extra bonus worthy of a higher rating. The twisting meachanism to push and retract the lead reminds me of my first lead pencil some 30 years ago when that was the standard type. The lead doesnt fully withdrawl or retract as easily as the push pin current standard. Explaining this to a nine year old who never used a mechanical pencil like this turned her off instantly. For me is works as i expect it but i wouldnt rate it at the top of my favorite list. The price is about right and flipping the pencil to get a red line is still quiker than my other fancier multi color lead pencils.
