To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was skeptical of the pens due to the brand, worried it was going to be a sharpie that wrote like a pen, but they are indeed pens. Also the best pens. Very comfortable to write with for long periods of time. The ink writes smoothly and I've had no problems with the ink being spotty or interrupted. It is also the first pen that has actually run through ALL of the ink in the pen before it stops working. I am now buying these pens anytime I need new pens.
I write a lot, and I'm also very forgetful. I lose pens consistently and find them occasionally. black ink is my preference, and the way this writes is just lovely. though I would advise to allow ~5 seconds for ink to dry to avoid smearing. the older sharpie felt tip pens were one of my favorites, and these are worlds better than those ones, imo anyway. comfortable to write with, they don't make the joint pain in my hands/fingers flare at all, and they write well, the ink and tip size are great too. definitely recommend and already have gifted these, too.
I thought I'd try to buy these since I've been seeing them all over my social media saying that these are the best pens to write with. I've been wanting a better pen to take notes with since cheap pens make my hands cramp after awhile. These pens however only write okay if the surface you're writing on is completely flat. I have a pretty thick notebook so that isn't the case and the ink was skipping a lot even with writing with a lot of pressure. Other times even no ink would come out. So I suppose I'll be sticking with my cheap pens for a while longer.
I love these pens, they are great to hold and they ink stays put. I purchased one box at a local supply store and found 2 pens had dried ink on the tips and would not write until cleaned. All I had to do was pour a little rubbing alcohol on some paper and draw a few lines until the ink flowed.
On my last purchase from amazon the box only contained 11 pens instead of 12.
I'm no pen snob by a long shot, but when testing these with other gel pens.... They just weren't as smooth. Another downside was the plastic ball they put on the tip of these. They do not come off easy at all. They do work as advertised, and are quite nice, but there's better out there.
