Threw this pen in originally to round out an order—I’d been eyeing it for a while, but wasn’t breaking down doors to get my hands on it. The design is intriguing, and as with most Zebra products, the price is great.
I’m glad I bought it! The design is right up my aesthetic alley. Also, reminiscent of IKEA, no? I know Finnish isn’t Swedish, but they’re right next to each other, right? Any craving of Swedish meatballs is therefore justified, right?
The only thing I’m not sold on is the clip design. It looks cool—
But functionally, at least for people who like to clip their pens on things, this pen leaves a bit to be desired—like the ability to lay flat against a book.
For me, it’s not a game killer. The number of times I clip a pen to a hardback book can pretty much be counted on one finger. But if you want to clip this to books, reconsider. It won’t end well for you. Get a different pen.
You twist the tip to deploy (I’m ambivalent on this feature), and the pen you get is a nice, standard workhorse ballpoint. This is the kind of pen that should move in to replace typical, uninspired-looking stick ballpoints. If you want your business to look just a little more modern and with it? Toss your BIC sticks and get Piirto pens instead. My only warning is to watch where you keep these, as the plastic is potentially delicious to cats (my cat, anyway).
