Pelikan Pelikano Junior Fountain Pen P68L - Left-Handed Nib - Red Body - PELIKAN 940924
  It might be for Kids,..., April 30, 2014
It might be for Kids, but Adults can enjoy it too! With Diamine Jet Black this Pen writes wet and juicy. The Pen is highly durable and is very easy to clean when needed. If you need a "Knockaround" Pen that can use International Cartridges & Converters and isn't so expensive that you are afraid to use it, give this one a try!
Lamy Calligraphy Pen Nib - 1.9 mm - LAMY LZ50-1.9
  There's not many reviews..., April 30, 2014
There's not many reviews of this Nib anywhere so here's mine. This is listed as a Calligraphy Nib, and I have no doubt that it's useable for this purpose. However, you can write with this and your handwriting looks very cool! The only problem I can see is if you write smaller lettering this is NOT the Nib for you. Big and Bold is the way this writes.
Pilot Down Force Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Orange Body - Black Ink - PILOT BDW-40F-O
  I bought a "Stateside"..., April 30, 2014
I bought a "Stateside" Pilot Down Force and I love it. Yes, it's a Ballpoint, and yes the "Hybrids" are darker but this one is for me so very comfortable. It's not too fat and not too skinny. And the Knurling of the Grip is very easy to hold onto. I've taken this out into the rain and have written with it on wet paper without any issues.! But I love me some Orange Pens, so I had to have another....
Pilot Varsity Disposable Fountain Pen - Medium Nib - Black - PILOT 90010
  After eschewing Fountain..., July 21, 2013
After eschewing Fountain Pens for many years for various (and very tenuous reasons) I bought a couple Preppys at a local Pen Store (I had to drive 3 hours to find one...) and I found I actually liked writing with them. Looking at reviews of "Beginner" Fountain Pens I kept getting confronted with the Pilot Varsity. So I added one to my order. When it arrived I found it nice to hold and well balanced. Writing with it was very nice. It's really smooth and lays down a nice dark line. The only time I had any issues writing with it was when I was writing on very bad or on the backside of heavily marked paper. In this instance I have had Ballpoint and Gel pens do the same! I'm going to try taking this to work, where I have to write a whole lot, and see how this handles. I am already looking into a "Next Level" Fountain Pen!
Pilot MultiBall Liquid Ink Pen - Fine Point - Black - PILOT LM-10F-B
  This was a neat find..., July 21, 2013
This was a neat find on the JetPens website. I have seen several reviews of this pen online and all were unanimous in their adulation of this pen. So I had to order a few. It's a 0.5mm point so it's a tad smaller than I prefer, and it's not quite as smooth as the Precise V5 but I think that the ability to write on multiple surfaces is quite valuable, and I'm willing to pay a smoothness penalty for it. A couple of these are worth adding to your pen collection!
Pilot BeGreen Precise V5 Liquid Ink Roller Ball Pen - 0.5 mm - Black - PILOT 26300
  This is a refillable..., July 21, 2013
This is a refillable version of the Precise V5, and it uses the exact same refill as the Pilot V5 RT. Strangely though, I really think so far I prefer the way this refill handles in the BeGreen Precise V5 body, rather than the V5 RT body. It's worth getting and since it uses the same refill as the V5 RT refills are available both locally and online, Including here at JetPens.
Uni-ball Signo 207 Retractable Gel Ink Pen - 0.7 mm - Black - SANFORD 1754843
  This is essentially the..., July 21, 2013
This is essentially the same pen as you can find in the USA in "Big Box" stores and Office Supply places. I'd never had a good experience with the Signo 207 in 0.7mm until just recently I bought on sale the Signo 207 Premier. I really liked this and the ink wrote rather well. So with the cheap price here at JetPens I bought a single to see if I had the same performance as the 207 Premier. I did! These are quite nice. I still count the Pentel Energel as my favorite but this is my No. 2 and will remain so as long as they continue to perform!
Ohto Fude Ball Liquid Ink Roller Ball Pen - 1.5 mm - Black Body - Black Ink - OHTO CFR-150FB-BLACK
  UPDATE: After a few..., June 25, 2013
UPDATE: After a few weeks of use I have to completely reassess my earlier review! It seems that this pen must have needed a little bit of startup time, but now both of them write beautifully! Dark, juicy lines that draw your attention, and the huge tip just glides across the page. I only wish it were refillable!
Zebra Surari Emulsion Ink Pen Refill - 1.0 mm - Black - ZEBRA REQ10-BK
  I don't always use Ballpoints...., May 27, 2013
I don't always use Ballpoints... But when I do it's either the Surari 1.0 or the Power Tank! Gel pens are more "fussy" then Ballpoints but give dark bold lines. The Surari and other so called "Hybrid" inks go about halfway to Gels. No skipping and very little white areas in writing. Pretty consistent lines. If you want a Ballpoint in 1.0 tip size give this one a look!
Pentel LR10 Gel Ink Refill - 1.0 mm - Black - PENTEL LR10-A
  The word you're looking..., May 27, 2013
The word you're looking for is WOW! In my opinion If you're going to use a Gel pen Pentel's EnerGels are some of the best out there, if not the best. I've tried the 0.5, 0.7 and the 1.0 and all of them in my opinion beat out anything commercially available in my area. The only huge drawback to these refills is they can get a little choppy if you're writing a lot at a time. I think this is due to the gel ink being drawn down and maybe an air bubble or two forming. Best to go between 2 pens if you're doing a lot of writing.
