If six stars were possible, this would be the product to deserve it...
What I said in my review of the version of this pen case in black holds equally
true for this one. Well designed, well made, and exceedingly helpful for
establishing order over my large and rapidly growing collection of JetPens
purchases. The only thing that didn't fit was one of the "staple-less staplers"
- otherwise, pens, pencils, sharpeners, erasers, note pads, even a Tombow Pit
Slide tape dispenser fits easily and comfortably. Highly recommended - get one
[at least], and be both impressed and organized.
Just a quick update to my review from 5/30 - the more I use this pen, the more I
like it. I write left handed, and that combined with a fine nib, can contribute
to some broken lines and skipping. Not with this economical, well-made pen.
Bravo, Pilot - I'm buying more of these, both to keep and to share with other
I find that, in general, I prefer a medium nib, but this fine nib works really
well for me. This almost feels like a midpoint between a fine and a medium.
Platinum paints the top of the nib with the ink color that is provided with the
pen; that paint will almost certainly deteriorate and flake or peel off.
I have given many of these away as gifts to like-minded pen enthusiasts, and
they always report positive reviews and favorable impressions.
One of my two favorite reasonably priced fountain pens, the other being the
Pilot VPen. This one has the added benefit of being refillable. This pen has a
good size and comfortable feel, and being a medium nib, completely avoids any
scratchiness. I've taken to giving these as gifts to like-minded pen
enthusiasts, and I always get back positive reviews.
This is an excellent value for a compact fountain pen. The nib on this pen
somehow avoids the scratchiness I encounter with other similar writing
instruments. Get the additional package of cartridges - you'll want to use this
A very nice pen with an attractive design. Generally, I like Pilot products, but
being a lefty, I struggle with this pen. That may be something I should have
anticipated, but I was hopeful. It'll make a nice gift for a right-handed
friend, I'm sure.
This is an excellent product - well thought out and it appears very well made.
Holds everything - pencils, eraser, sharpener, pens of all types, note pads, ink
cartridges - in an organized and secure manner. Once you find a nook or a cranny
for something in this bag, it's a lot easier to find it the next time - and it
won't be damaged or broken. I've found enough cool things at JetPens that I'm
debating whether I need to get a scond one of these.
Very convenient, very portable, highly affordable, and full of high-quality
paper on which it's a pleasure to write. Fine nib fountain pens, even the
Uni-ball Signo Bit 0.18 gel pen glide across this paper easily. One of three
Rhodia products I have, and all of them work great.
I bought one of these, along with one of the same model but with the 0.18 mm
ball, admittedly out of curiosity - could truly usable pens be made with a point
that fine? In my opinion, the answer in both cases is yes. You may need to
adjust your writing style to be satisfied with these - a lighter touch, a
minimal adjustment to the angle of pen to paper, careful attention to the
pressure being applied - but these are noteworthy writing instruments. Thank
you, JetPens, for making these available.
Wow - just Wow. Keep in mind that the "0.18" refers to eighteen one-hundredths
of a millimeter, and there are about 25.4 millimeters to an inch, and you
quickly come to the realization that calling this a "fine point pen" is an
understatement of considerable magnitude. The engineering required to make a pen
like this is noteworthy, but Uni-ball makes it even better by making a pen that
writes clean, unbroken lines of extraordinary thinness. I actually had to look
carefully to be sure ink was being deposited on paper. Want to transcribe a
textbook onto a Rhodia Bloc No. 10 notepad? Most of a concerto onto one sheet of
musical staff paper? Get a couple of these, and some refills, and you'll be
ready to go.
