Surprisingly excellent. Just bought to see if I could get the fluidity of liquid ink with the versatility of gel, and this really works well. Doesn't skip, produces a nice dark line, and looks like it might hold a lot of ink. Will be buying more in the future. The only weird part is the barrel color doesn't match the ink color. Minor nitpick.

Instead of being able to oder one color, you have to order one with white as well. The eraser isn't that great either. Still very difficult to use for anything other than very small corrections. Good concept, but the execution doesn't match the promise of the design. This is probably the eraser I use the least out of my collection of seven or eight.

I carry about 7 cards in my wallet, and I never carry cash. This is perfect for that use. If you have more than about 7 cards you have to double up in the slots, and some people might find this annoying. Dropping this wallet (on concrete) does not seem to lead to scratches but the cards might pop out a little. Beware of keeping this wallet in shallow jean pockets that ladies get these days, it can slip out do to the smoothness of the case.

Only disappointment is that JetPens added new designs after I ordered this, but these cases are inexpensive enough so that you can purchase more than one.

Recently purchases a 0.4mm mechanical pencil, but was dissatisfied with the lightness of the HB lead that came with it. This was the softest lead in the 0.4 mm range from Neox, and it is exactly what I wanted: smooth, dark, and hasn't broken even with several hours of use.

I write lightly so that might affect the breakage and I use this with the Pentel Graphgear (sorry not sorry Pilot), so the lead sheath might prevent breakage as well. The only drawback is that the lead gets used at a higher rate than the harder graphite options so more advancing than "usual." But I will not be going back.

Bought this for watercolors. The paper is excellent for that purpose, but really is a little to textured for what I think of as standard flash card use. Medium weight for watercolor paper.

Very nice, a little scratchy and can skip a little bit while drawing a steady line, but the feel of the pen is great in the hand, as the grip is soft yet non-yielding. Haven't tried to purchase refills for this yet so can't say if there are any. The clicking mechanism is a little loud for a classroom.
My first fountain pen....

My first fountain pen. I love the extra fine nib, can be scratchy on cheap paper. Ink lasts much longer than the fine nib even. I like the clear body so you can see the ink flow. Allows you to write softer than with a gel pen, which helps my hands while scribbling notes for hours in class. Grip is slick, but never slips because of the ergonomic ridges. Excellent everyday carry pen. I have it in my backpack, have tumbled it around a bit, and everything is still strong and is definitely not leaking.

Beware: this is an entry point for fountain pen addiction, purchase with caution.

Just an everyday mechanical pencil. Long, with a rubber grip portion. Not heavy. Not really great for carrying in your pocket. Works without being too expensive. Won't have to worry about losing it.

Works just like all of the other Kuru Toga models out there. Slick barrel which can be uncomfortable. Very light weight. Eraser looks large, but I haven't used it to erase anything. Nice to be able to see the mechanism and the lead count. Perhaps a little greener than the picture.

Great gel highlighter in pale colors. Will cause gel ink to bleed after two swipes, no matter the age of the gel or the type of paper. Pencil lead has the same characteristics after being highlighted, will smear.

Don't use with fountain pen ink writing at all. Instant smear, which I really should have expected, but decided to attempt anyway.

Haven't tried this with ballpoint but it really might be the only option left. I am rather disappointed that I can only circle things with these highlighters with my current writing instruments. Will work well on laser printed sheets and most textbooks. Will not work well with inkjet prints.

The Sharpie Gel ones are better with gel ink.
