I have reviewed the Sakura Grosso Gel twice now, and on the second go-round, Sakura of America emailed me with the answer to my question of whether or not these pens are available in the U.S. The answer is yes, under the name Sakura Sumo Grip II. Sakura was kind enough to provide me with some samples of this pen - some complete with promotional lanyards - to giveaway on the blog, so here we go!
There are a total of four individual pens and one two pencil pack to giveaway, so I will pick a total of five winners randomly from the comments section. The first number picked will get the pencil two-pack, and the rest get individual pens with lanyards (one standard black lanyard/three promotional red lanyards). Here are the rest of the rules:
1. Leave one comment on this post anytime between now, and Thursday night at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. You are limited to one entry. Feel free to link this giveaway on your blog, or share it with anyone you feel is a true pen addict. If you have a blog, I would love a link back, but it is certainly not required for entry into the contest.
2. For this contest, I will pick five winners at random from the comments section of this post. The comments will be numbered in the order they are received, i.e. the first comment is #1, the second #2, and so on. The Random Integer Generator at random.org will be used to pick the numbers of the winners.
3. The contest winner will be posted on Friday, June 5th. The winner will have one week to email me at the address posted in the right sidebar.
4. I will ship internationally. I know there are many international readers and fans of The Pen Addict, and I will gladly ship to you at my expense.
Thanks, and good luck! And thanks to Sakura of America for providing these pens!
