Uni-Ball Signo 207 takes a bath
There's a huge sticker on the front of the package that says "Helps prevent check fraud." Sanford uses a special ink formula that traps the ink into the paper fiber to prevent washing your info off of your checks.
So being the curious fellow that I am, I wrote down a quote and did my best to get rid of it.
Click for better views....I did not feel like having a bunch of guys in suits knocking on my door so I didn't do any online research on how to commit check fraud. I did do a 6 hour soak and then sprayed on some Spray and Wash and gave it a little scrubbing. The first picture is just after the soak.
It reminds me of the Office Space quote: "I can't believe what a bunch of nerds we are. We're looking up "money laundering" in the dictionary." Good Stuff.
This was after the scrubbing. Bottom line, it held up very well. In the past I would sign my checks with a fountain pen, but... no more, this is my new pen of choice when it comes time to give that little punk up the street a check for mowing my lawn. (I never trusted him anyway.)
It's a Good Pen. It's a .7 and writes like it, puts down a nice fat line of ink. There's one more day to get your guess in on winning a free pen. Just check yesterdays post, and the winner will be announced tomorrow.
