Great pen for everyday use. Ink is smooth and dark and the pen glides effortlessly over paper. It smells a little like a Sharpie, but I don't mind. It's cheap too!

I've been using these Sharpies for a few years. The point is sturdy, and makes for an enjoyable writing experience. The slight stickiness of the felt tip makes my penmanship really nice. The only problems are that 1) they have that distinctive chemical-like Sharpie odor which can be pretty off-putting and 2) they bleed through all but the thickest of pages. It's not the sexiest pen in the world, but it's actually pretty good.

I love this pen. It is beautifully balanced, writes smoothly (but not too smoothly) and is very pleasing to look at. I've owned it for over a year and it has held up beautifully.

It really pains me to do this. I have been admiring this pencil for almost a year and last week I finally got one and I was so excited. I really wanted to love this pencil! And it does have some really cool features. It's a great looking pencil and it definitely has the cool factor--several people have asked me what kind of pencil I was using, and the reactions I got when I explained the mechanism of this pencil were great. Unfortunately, the utility of the kuru mechanism depends on how you write. If you write in short frequent strokes it's great. It's probably also perfect for those writing Japanese characters. But for cursive writers--not so much. For the mechanism to work, you have to frequently lift the tip of the pencil off the page--each time you do that, the lead rotates. Unfortunately for me, I connect many of my letters and the lead therefore doesn't get a chance to rotate that much. So I end up having the same problem with this pencil as all the others--unevenly worn lead and breakage. Bummer.

Verified Purchase
The Pros: This eraser is super kawaii. It comes in great colors and looks like a tube of lip balm. It's also just generally a great design--you can twist out only as much eraser as you need, and the eraser has really useful points and edges that help with precision erasing.
The Cons: It's all form and no function. The eraser doesn't erase well and leaves smudges. It also tends to accumulate a lot of eraser shavings on the tip which detract from its precision, and are also just generally a pain to pick off.
