I have to say that this box of "pens" is a great deal. Since you can basically
get 2 for 1 at the current sale price, I didn't feel guilty throwing 2 boxes
into my shopping cart.
I was interested in these pens due to the overwhelming request to have them
restocked by JetPens. When they came back in, I decided to give them a whirl.
While they are a bit different than I expected (Are they pens? Are they
markers?) I was happy to give them out to coworkers because they are affordable
(at the time I write this).
Clearly there is a theme here - I would, as a US shopper, consider these
markers, not pens. The tip is very wide compared to other sign pens I've
purchased, and the ink is similar to something seen in say, a Crayola marker.
As the box says, these are water based, and I know that if I spilled anything on
the ink, that it would run like crazy.
The black ink is not black-black, and I suppose that is due to the formulation
of the water based ink and the fairly wide "felty" tip. Despite the box's
insisting that that there are "vivid and various ink colors", I did not find the
ink to be very vivid. Although, I'm not quite sure HOW vivid black ink can
Regardless, there are clearly some fans of this pen. It may not have been up my
alley, in the end, but I know that I won't run out of them anytime soon as I now
have 22 of them easily within my grasp.
