  GOOD: perfect grey hue..., November 5, 2013
By mse...
GOOD: perfect grey hue | barrel won't roll | eye-catching | slim design without clip | durable nib
BAD: water-based ink will bleed thru cheap paper (like generic legal pads and lined school paper)
UGLY: this is a beautiful pen that is the embodiment of function and design -- nothing ugly about it

Do you love the light grey hue achieved when writing with the hard lead of a 0.5mm mechanical pencil but hate the scratchiness and smearing of lead? BUY THIS PEN! It's RIDICULOUSLY INEXPENSIVE for such a LONG-LASTING pen that DOESN'T DRY OUT when left uncapped for a few hours. Its ink doesn't smear and it's super comfortable to hold, so don't be surprised that it'll be the pen you turn to for sketching, note-taking, subtle underlining, and discreet doodling during long meetings. Invest in better quality paper, such as one finds in the classic Black n' Red notebook series, and you'll find this pen is a MUST-HAVE: buy one for your backpack or purse, another for your pen tin, and a few more as backups: even your most trusted colleagues will end up taking it. For those who care, the ink is a cool grey but visible despite its light tone. If Staedtler Triplus fineliners are your thing, know that their grey is not as easy to read, and other colors they offer are too light in my opinion. If you buy more Stabilo Point 88 fineliners, however, the only one not easy to read is yellow. Even better, Stabilo's Colorkilla pen set (sold here!) offers erasable inks.
