I know I usually write about fountain pens, but I thought I would change things up a bit.
Besides fountain pens, I am also a gel pen and pencil user. Why? Due to my frugality, I have a limited supply of really fountain pen friendly paper and sometimes cannot deal with long dry times when using really good paper.
I have recently tried out the Pentel Energel line of gel pens after using pens from Pilot and Uniball for a long time.
What immediately impressed me is their short ink dry time and lack of smearing. They also produce a nice, dark black line. And are they smooth! I have used the needle point and ball point versions and am impressed with both.
By the way, I was not compensated in any way for my recommendation of this line of pens. I just love them!
Check out my YouTube video on the Pentel Energel and look for more videos in the months to come!
