I received this pen for free by doing a survey. It is the best pen I have ever written with. Next I will purchase blue since I like blue better. This is a comfortable pen,writes so easily (glides) does not leak like a lot of pens that I have used. So far by far this is my favorite pen and I do plan on using if for a very long time. I do advise everyone to at least try one. They are not to expensive. At least give this pen a try. I am so happy that they included me in there survey and I got the pen for free. I probably never would have even heard of it if it was not for the survey. All I have to say is Thank You Staples.

Being a lefty who has gone through life with an ink smeared hand, I look for pens with fast drying, non-smearing ink. I found it with this pen. And I like a broad line, also found with this pen. At my job, I am required to use blue ink only. I bought the pen, even though it sells with black ink, thinking I would try it out and then purchase a blue ink refill later - a practice I'm used to since most quality pens can only be purchased in black ink. I should have checked before I purchased. When I returned to the store to pick up the blue ink, I found that the blue refill comes only in fine point and no other brand of refills can be substituted for it. So I had no choice but to get the fine point refill. I was disappointed to find that the fine point does not glide as smoothly over the paper as the broad point. It slows me down. So, sadly, this pen has been relegated to the "only as a last resort" pen jar until such time as Avant provides a broad point blue ink refill. If you are a broad point black ink user, you will most likely enjoy this pen very much. Keep in mind, however, that no other brand of refills will fit this pen and I've found it nowhere else but Staples.

Comments about AvantPro™ Retractable Pen with SilkScribe Ink, 1.0mm, Medium Point, Black:

This pen is great. Very comfortable to write with. If you apply a lot of pressure when writing this pen is the best. It was very hard to find a pen with 1.0 mm Medium point.

AvantPro™ Retractable Pen

Comments about AvantPro™ Retractable Pen with SilkScribe Ink, 1.0mm, Medium Point, Black:

The AvantPro Retractable Pen wrote well on the sample pad in the store. The 1.0mm is a good size pen tip for general writing. I wanted something that would write well on recycled paper. Unfortunely it starts out well but starts to skip on recycled paper e.g. Sudoku Book. A better pen selection would be the Bic Velocity 1.6 pen. It has a larger pen tip and it writes smooth on regular paper and recycled paper. The Bic is by far a lot cheaper than the AvantPro Retractable Pen. I like them both for different reasons and will use them on paper that they are better suited for.

GREAT PEN

By BIG MAC

Comments about AvantPro™ Retractable Pen with SilkScribe Ink, 1.0mm, Medium Point, Black:

Reasonably priced pen that looks expensive and writes almost as good as my $400 Mont Blanc. I could buy 60 of these pens and lose one a week and still be ahead of the game. Not as eye catching but in today's economy who cares.
I would suggest that you buy the gel refills as they provide a smudge free signature that enhances the value of the pen.

Fabulous Pen

By penuser

from east coast, usa

Comments about AvantPro™ Retractable Pen with SilkScribe Ink, 1.0mm, Medium Point, Black:

I love this pen! My new favorite. I use it at work daily. Smooth, clean lines and easy to use.
I will say that my husband is left-handed, and finds that it doesn't work as well for him. It tends to smear. But, as a right-handed writer, I find it works perfectly!
