I love this little pen.
I like to always keep something to write with in my purse or pocket, and this is so small that it's in no way a hassle. Not to mention it's even good if I'm not carrying a purse! This little guy fits in tiny girl-jean pockets, and can be clipped discreetly to a waist ribbon on a dress or tossed in a clutch purse. Not to mention it's fashionable so it can be pulled out in any occasion and will probably get some people asking where you got it, it's a cute conversation starter.

Writing-wise I don't have the same complaints as others. I did notice a more watery look to the ink when I first used it, but I always use a pen for a while to be sure it just doesn't need breaking in. It has served me well for a long time, never stuttering or skipping. I did notice, probably because of the fine nib, that some inks write lighter than expected, but it isn't a really big problem in my opinion, it's something I see in a few of my fine-nibbed pens.

A nice sturdy pencil with some good weight too it.
It's fun and pretty stylish, always gets my friends lookin like it's from the future or something.
The pencil is really strong and I love it, nice and comfy in the hand. I like shaking it to get the lead out and having it work with the click-top is a good way to warm up to the new feature without feeling too uncomfortable.

I really liked the idea of a pencil holder, I'm a person who used to tape wrapped up dowel to the end of small pencils to keep using them. But naturally it's troublesome.
Most art stores I went to for a holder sold individual holders that were uggly and fussy, or nice ones in huge sets of colored pencils, which I have pleanty of,

The Stad One-push pencil holder is the nicest looking holder and definitly the most confortable. It's a nice width, and a nice cool alluminum, which I'm used to thanks to pens. And it doesn't weigh your hand down to use. I absolutely love it!

I love this pen.
It's good to have since I can't carry a brush, ink and water with me all over. It's waterproof, so great for watercolor washes. I like how it looks pretty classy, so I'm not ashamed to bring it out and goof off, and I also liked how the sturdy barrel can't be squeeze, so no scare of squishing the ink out.

And my brother who studies japanese loved it too, I ordered him one and he likes to show off the beautiful lines he gets for his calligraphy.

I've been buying these in the 5-pen sets. Since I can't spring for it all at once.
But I have most now and boy do I love them.

I love the water-based media and since I like to bike and move around alot I bought these. They let me paint spontanesly whenever I break at the park, without the fuss of using a cup of water and brush and pans taking up room in my pack. (Now I can carry my extra snacks _3)
I like how you can dilute them simply by dipping them in a bit of water, how brilliant they come out, and the small sets are beutifully matched to eachother, and they do blend well.
They don't replace my watercolors entirely, but for the artist on the go they are fun and really worth it.

Great price and a sturdy little thing.
It's so fun getting to put new colors in my pen.

It fits in alot of different pens too. I got it for my Rotring Core and it made me so happy to know it fit.
It's also nice that the plastic is super sturdy and even if it did break it's super cheap to replace, horrah!

Wonderful! It's such a pretty converter (even if it's not something you typically are looking at, it is nice).

And in actuallity there are some other pens aside from pelican that can use this converter. I noticed it looked alot like the certiridges for my Rotring Core, and I bought it, hoping it'd be a match.
It fit like a charm and I've may even by myself a spare, just in case. _3

It is glass, so you should be prepared to take care of it. If you think you're a klutz there are other similar-shaped converters in plastic that also work well.

I bought this because I'm a artist and I like to get my hand on all sorts of tools.
I've always sorta of liked painting with ink and a brush, but sometimes the hassle of getting out the tools made it troublesome, and I could never do it on the run.
I got this particulallar pen because it looked, nice, simple, and was waterproof, considering I have a tendency to add watercolor to my sketches.

It's so much fun to draw with and it's handy and I take it absolutely everywhere, should inspiration suddenly hit. I'm eager just bringing it out.
My brother takes Japanese and when he borrowed the pen, he loved it for the bold look it gave and he really liked that the ink dried fast enough to keep from making messes. I'm ording him one now.

Overall, we both recomend it.
