uni-ball Vision Elite Bold 0.8 Blue/Black (come fly with me.)


uni-ball got it right on this one. I hooked up with these guys on Twitter and they fired these off for me to take a look at. All I needed to see was "Blue/Black on the packaging and I was sold. I am a huge fan of my blue/black fountain pen ink, so to get that combo in a roller ball is awesome and very welcomed from the norm.

Their bold is listed as a .08 and that feels about right compared to my .7's. Not too bold, just right. I just cant got over how great the color of this ink is. I mentioned that already right? A larger view gives you a better look.

I never noticed this before on their packages, but they claim they "won't leak in flight." which is a huge bonus considering the traveling I have been doing. Now you know why in the first picture the pen is resting on two planes. I am trying to be a little clever here as well. This is a good pen, I am throwing on in the travel bag as well.

The waiter at the restaurant I went to tonight had 3 black G-2's perfectly lined up in his apron, but gave me a crappy ballpoint to sign my check. (Smart man.)

I recently stumbled upon your blog and as a stationery addict, I love it! I adore these pens, I used them in all my exams because they're so smooth and easy to write with and now I use them at work and for journalling.

I, too, am a pen addict - and I am aware I shouldn't suggest that you are an addict - but I feel so validated now that I found your blog! Seriously, that blue/black ink is the best! All the benefits of liquid ink; none of the mess of fountain pens!
