This is a pen I enjoy a good deal, it writes nice and black, looks interesting,
feels good in-hand. I have had a few of these over the years, and the only
slight flaw is the unique knock system does not always click into place, so that
instead of just pushing on the back of the knock, you kind of have to slide your
thumb down the side of the clip/knock and push it into position so that it stays
"knocked," extended. Besides THAT, it writes smoothly, I really love the ink
and the body.
Saw these come back in stock the other day and ordered two right away. They were
sold out within a day! Buy one (or some) if you get the chance, they are so fun
and awesome. I do wish J. Herbin would make one of these available with a finer
tip, but it is still great as is. The ink flows very well, too fast if you let
the tip rest on the paper (tends to bleed fast on some paper), but it's pretty
easy to get used to.
This is a nice and affordable multipen with a lot of options to fill it with! I
work at a psychiatric hospital and take a lot of notes and such, using pencils
and different colored pens, and this puts all I need into one writing
instrument. I put two mechanical pencils in it (4H and 4B leads), a 0.4mm black
gel and a 0.5mm black emulsion in (works better than the thin gel for signing
documents, particularly carbon paper documents). I bought a second Prefill (a
white one) and put 4 different colored gel inks in it, just for fun, really.
I would say get this thing if you're looking for a multi pen with a lot of
versatility, very good quality inks available, but also one that won't make you
weep if you lose it (or someone permanently borrows it).
Bought this pen for my music teacher mother, and it is quite nice. The ink flows
well, and the pen looks great. My only slight negative comment would be that it
feels lighter and slightly "cheaper" than I expected from the pictures, but
still worth the purchase!
These notebooks by Metaphys are fabulotastic. They hold together very well, and
wear in a nice-looking manner. The grid lined paper is nicely colored, takes ink
very well and the grid lines are not distracting. I only wish Jetpens would get
ahold of Metaphys other-sized memo pads, there are some seriously cool ones!
This pen writes smoothly, no skipping, nice and dark black ink. The line is
good, fine. The only down side that I think people should be aware of is that
after owning it for about 2 months now and using it pretty regularly, I've
noticed the glossiness on the pen body wearing away. It looks pretty crappy now,
and I don't really use it anymore.
This is my first lead holder, so I do not have an expansive knowledge of them,
but I can say it's wonderful. Even though it has a plastic body there is some
good weight to it. I use it all the time (and I am not a pencil guy, typically),
it is quite nice. Very easy to use, and quite handsome, indeed.
The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was the lead grade indicator: I
bought 3B lead, put it in, and turned the lead grade indicator only to find out
that it only indicates as high as 2B. This doesn't take away from the quality of
writing or the feel of the pencil, but it was disappointing, to a degree, that
the lead I chose to be in there cannot be correctly displayed by the lead grade
Just for everyone's information, here are the lead grades that the lead grade
indicator has: 4H, 2H, H, F, HB, B, 2B.
It would be very cool if there were an option from Rotring to change the
