Best broad tip pen from what I have tried (Pilot BPS-GP, Papermate Silk, and
Papermate Profile). Reasons include:
- Ink is nice and dark
- Skips the least
- Does not goop
The Pilot BPS-GP comes in second, however, the ink was lighter and it skipped
more often than the Lakubo. The Papermate Silk had the best ink color but it
skipped and gooped up and the Papermate Profile had too light of an ink color
and did not write as smooth as the other 3.
You need 2 go's with this stamp to conceal information- just one is not enough.
Also, there were no understandable (I can't read Japanese) instructions on how
to apply the refill ink that came with it. I had purchased the bigger refill
also and those had instructions, however, Jetpens should come out w/ an article
on how to apply the refill. I think I got the gist after dissecting the really
small pictures on the refill for a long time. Still, this stamp does the job.
Comfortable grip+super smooth writing = My #1 favorite pen out of the ones

I have not had the sliding issue mentioned by previous users, likely because I
am only a light user of chalk as I use it to jot down reminders, to dos, etc. I
really like this holder- it's cute and has a magnetic strip which is really
functional as I just stick it on my chalkboard when not in use. The push
mechanism pops out the chalk really well. I took off one star as this does not
fit the standard 3/8 in size chalk- but then it is meant for Japanese standard
sizes... I just placed an order for another one to use w/ colored chalk.
