Uni-ball Jetstream

I first found out about the Uni-Ball Jetstream Ball Point Pen on Cool Tools last week. It was claimed to be the “best pen for left handers”, so, being sort of a pen nut, I had to try it out.

I got a 2-pack at Target a couple of days ago, one black and one blue. They had both the 0.7mm and 1.0mm varieties, but since I had just recently purchased a pack of 0.38mm pens, I decided to go big. After years of using fine point pens, the 1mm seems sort of like the old jumbo pencils that I used way back in kindergarten. The lines are big and bold. The tip just seems to flow across the page. It’s a really nice pen.

While I’m not quite on the Danny Gregory level of pen consumerism, I know a good pen the moment it hits my paper. Next, I will probably need to hit the opposite end of the spectrum and try out the Uni-Ball Signo Bit — a needle-like 0.18mm!
