A week or so ago I was gifted a bounty of Pentel products from Tiffany, one of our distribution reps.
Instead of hoarding them all away in my lateral file, I thought I would pay it forward to our followers and fans. The swag spans from today’s BL407 to an assortment of chalk markers and, well, other pens.
At first glance, you may think the BL407 is too much of a good thing or too flashy for you or that it was only engineered to coordinate with Robocop’s armored body, but when you get behind the driver’s seat you’ll soon realize it was made with you in mind and that it’s all that and a bag of chips with few cons.
Below, I’ve jotted a few points while using this pen.
Now the weight is something to note. Upon hoisting it onto the paper it might as well write for itself, especially considering the blend of ink and gel effortlessly flowing from the 7 millimeter ball point. Due to its comfortable heft, while writing it requires almost no pressure on your part –and isn’t that what we’re all striving for?
Let’s talk about smoothness. Much like how I felt in the western bolo tie I sported that fearful dance night at Ed White Middle, we would be hard pressed to find anything smoother in the category of economical upscale writing pens. Expect fluid to flow from every consonant to every vowel you place on every piece of paper, including the occasional Will You Go To Prom With Me note–highlighting distinct crispness on the squares you draw that will fill out the Check Yes or No section.
