This multi-pen leaves...

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
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.
