#OnePenOneDay Pilot Precise V7 and Zebra F-701

It has been a few of weeks since my last #OnePenOneDay post, so I wanted to catch up real quick with two pens that recently made it through the challenge.

Pilot Precise V7

The Pilot Precise V7 is a Hall of Fame caliber pen. It has made it through decades relatively unchanged, and with good reason - it’s hard to mess with perfection. Known for is smoothness, the V7, along with the fine point V5, is a wonderful writer. They can be found in stores everywhere, and if you like writing with a needle tip liquid ink pen there is no better.

Zebra F-701

The Zebra F-701 on the other hand, is more of a niche pen, but is starting to gain quite a following. Between just these two pens, I reach for the Zebra 9 out of 10 times. I like the build quality, and the ballpoint ink cartridge is super smooth. This pen just oozes quality and functionality. In fact, the guy who repaired my dishwasher this week was even sporting one (I did toss him a Power Tank to try out).

One pen is established, and the other is an up and comer, but every true pen addict should own one of each.

#OnePenOneDay A.G. Spalding Bros. Bullet Roller

A.G. Spalding Bros. Silver Bullet Pen

This is a long forgotten pen in my stash, but the A.G. Spalding Bros. Bullet Roller design is so sleek I had to break it back out for the #OnePenOneDay project. One problem I ran into right out of the gate: the refill had dried up. I so badly wanted to use this pen I tried refills from about 10 different pens before hitting on a winner in the Ohto Ceramic 0.5mm Roller Ball refill. Worked like a champ!

The one flaw with this pen in some eyes is the lack of a clip to keep the pen from rolling away. It doesn’t bother me, but it is a quick one when it is ready to roll, so pay attention! Otherwise, it was fun to revisit, and I will be using it much more frequently. Be sure to check out the original review to see what the old reviews used to look like on The Pen Addict.

#OnePenOneDay Blue Sharpie Pen

Sharpie Pen - Blue

The Sharpie Pen is one of my all time favorites, so I had no trouble using this pen all day long for the #OnePenOneDay project.

The long, slender barrel is very comfortable, and the plastic tip doesn’t break down as quickly as other similar type pens. I don’t even mind the sharp edge in the grip area, but it looks like that has been taken care in a recent update. I also like the original lighter blue ink more than the darker blue, which is the more common shade.

The picture above shows the paint chipping problem that many people encounter. I prefer to say that my pen has been loved. There is no reason to not own at least one of these pens.
