  This multi-pen leaves..., December 2, 2008
By trw52
This multi-pen leaves me with mixed emotions. The overall look of the wood with a champagne metallic plastic body is attractive and color-coordinated. The pen is well proportioned and artistically shaped. The "2-pens plus 1 pencil" design of this instrument seems like a sensible approach for an executive or business multi-pen.

The problem for me was apparently also a problem for the previous reviewer. I expected a metal or mostly metal body instead of the metallic looking plastic. This was a surprise based upon the JetPens description. I'm afraid that the plastic may also tend to make the "real wood" portion of the pen suspect -- why would you marry an exotic wood with such an obviously plastic body (the wood sleeve is real).

I had this item about two weeks when it slipped out of my shirt pocket and fell 3 feet to the pavement when I was getting into my car. The "Pure Malt" did not take the fall well -- the plastic cracked in one place and was scratched in three or four others. Oh well...

A decent looking multi-pen, but you should be clear that you are paying for mostly plastic construction. I would have preferred something closer to the construction of the Pentel S20 series of mechanical pencils in terms of marrying wood, metal and plastic to perfection.
