A pen is a pen is a pen is a pen…right? You can buy them in packs of 10 for $1 at most stores. When you get them home you rip open the bag and get one out to use it – about 1 in 5 actually work for me – and the ones that do work – still are a little “choppy” in their ink release – so the words I am writing look like they are dalmatians. There are a few that write ok – but I find myself touching the pen to the tip of my tongue or tapping it against the edge of the desk while holding it upside down. I hate having a pen that does not perform. I have thought about buying more expensive pens – and actually tried out a few of the $2-$5 ones – they all worked ok – but weren’t much better. Then I was offered the Faber-Castell Ondoro Smoked Oak Rollarball Pen to try. I actually enjoy writing again!
It came packaged in a very nice box. The pen itself is heavy, but not uncomfortably so – just enough to let you know that it is made with quality materials. It is a perfect size to hold, and gives me a feeling a quality and luxury. The materials that it is made out of are beautiful and the feel of the pen as it is writing is smooth and reliable. I don’t have to worry about the ink stopping unexpectedly and have to rewrite something – leaving your papers looking sloppy or messy. The is a elegant writing pen and I LOVE IT! The ink dries quickly so I don’t have to worry about smudges and it is great for men or women. You can buy ink refills for a very inexpensive price – and with a pen this nice – you don’t have to worry about it breaking or leaking.
You can see how beautiful the chrome plated metal cap is and the smoked oak solid wood is. They go so well together. Overall I am very pleased with the quality and the design of the Faber-Castell Ondoro Smoked Oak Pen. It is so smooth. My kids keep trying to take it and use it and that is when they hear me growl a little, lol. This pen is one thing I am not sharing with them.
