There isn't much to say... just take 3 great jetstream inks (Black, Blue, Red)
and throw them in a pen that is basically a slightly larger .7 Basic series
body. It is very comfortable in my small hand for being a multipen (about the
thickness of the barrel (middle) of a sharpie marker ~1.5in circumference). It
probably won't be a dedicated writer (still a bit too big), but for 'on the go'
it looks, feels, and writes nice. It's not as nice or functional as the 4+1,
but it is 'thin' enough for me to use at home in place of the individual color
pens for short periods. For MOST people('s hands), it could easily be an
I love the basic series look with the pen ink indicator in the plunger and
nothing else. So much so that I put a .5 refill in a .7 basic body and put a
red dot on it to label it as the one with the .5 in it. So this was great
because it was the .5 inks, all in one pen, inside the minimalist Basic body.
The only thing.. and I don't know why.. Is that the top is loose. It wobbles a
little which is bad because it is attached to the clip, so I know I'm going to
get in the habit of playing with it like a loose tooth and (eventually) breaking
it. Maybe it is taken from another Uni pen that has a pencil? But for this pen
it doesn't have a purpose and I'll probably end up supergluing it tight. It
also gives it the impression of it being a cheap pen (well it is.. but so is the
Basic, which is perfect), even though the rest of it is solid.
