Verified Purchase
I bought this glass pen together with the gorgeous J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary Edition ink. This nearly opaque, gold-flecked red ink would be a nightmare to clean from my fountain pens, even if only dipped. The glass pen is perfect for for this ink, just rinse it off, wipe dry, and change to another bottled ink in a flash, no messy cleaning job. I prefer this shorter cylindrical shape to the other glass pen shape you offer, the fancy, overly-long, twisted & tapered model which just invites breakage. Only one problem: how to keep my glass pen on my desk without endangering the point? The box it comes in is flimsy. I use a full-length plastic traveler toothbrush holder! The nib is protected and the holder takes up little room lying flat and won't roll away. Without this pen I would not have bought the gorgeous ink. The combination is perfect. Thank you, JetPens, for your stocking of such esoterica and for your amazingly fast service. Ordered on July 30, received August 1, from West Coast to East Coast in three days flat.

So beautiful and so feminine....

So beautiful and so feminine. When capped this pen fits easily into any purse. I filled it with the J. Herbin ink I ordered to match it, Bouquet d'Antan, an exquisitely feminine pale dusty rose. I shall wear the pen clipped to my neckline as a show-off accessory, ready to grab. This is my first Monteverde, and the quality and design are superb. This pen will be my "eleventh digit". May I add that JetPens has always been an excellent source every time I have made a purchase, and the photos and descriptions answer every question. I am delighted.

I love my comfy little earplugs. The container is tiny and takes up no room in my purse, so they are always handy. The connecting string is a visual signal that I am wearing them, and prevents loss. I can still hear well enough to converse while in stores with "background" superfluous sounds which are not music to my ears.

Verified Purchase
I don't have room for a shredder. I don't want shredding scissors because that is manual (hands) labor which can be a pain. I am thrilled with my new Kokuyo Security Roller Stamp
from JetPens (two sizes, I have the larger (3" x 2-3/4" x 1-3/4"). It prints Japanese characters and rolls back & forth easily if a single pass is insufficient. The shiny black smoothly rounded surface with a flip-cover for the inky roller surface is elegant and fits in a small drawer. Since this ink does not dry on glossy surfaces, for that I revert to my old option of wetting the paper under a faucet of running water to soften, crumple it into a ball, and toss. This lump is impossible to read, wet or dried. Fast, cheap and effective. Since I am not in an office but at home, it works for me.
