Pilot V Razor Point

I had to run into Staples today and literally jogged through the pen aisle because I did not have any intentions of buying anything...mainly because I just feel like I know everything that is there already. However, I saw Pilot and Extra Fine and I grabbed the package hoping for the best. I bought the 4 pack for around $6.00.

I like the way the pen felt right away. Nice and light and it feels nicely balanced. I grabbed the notebook that I have been using for work lately and remember that scene in There's Something About Mary when the paramedic screams "We got a Bleeder" ...yeah it was like that. Wrong paper. My problem is that when I see extra fine on the label... I expect a .38 and without any bleeding. Life is just not that simple.

But here in the Moleskine, it works a little better and I was little more comfortable. But at the end of the day, the 3 unused pens will probably end up in my next giveaway, I would be better off with the Razor II that markets itself as the Super Fine Point. (that means buying more pens :)

Yeah, sometimes I see a pen that is labeled fine, then turn over the package and read that their idea of fine = .7 point.

Frustrating that the manufacturers can't be a little more consistent.

Right! We need consistency. Agreed!

Hi, I just discovered your blog and it's really neat. I love pens, My favorites for drawing are the prismacolor .05, the pilot varsity (i refill it, a bit messy but it can be done) and of course the best - ultra fine sharpie. I didn't know they came out with a new pen. I guess I'll be off to art supply store tomorrow.

Hi, I just saw your blog and you are right on spot about consistency! One of my favorite pen for drawing (or writing) are the Paper mate Liquid Flair Marker Pen -0.70 mm Extra Fine Pen. If you love drawing or writing with a good pen, you should definitely give it a try.

I love the Pilot V Razor Point, but haven't found it in retail stores recently. It writes boldly but sharply.
