The pens are great, but the paint coating on the pen constantly flakes and comes off, and it gets on EVERYTHING. Anyone who uses these pens will have little black and silver specs on their hands, clothes, face etc.... its very annoying.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great pens for the most part, but they leak randomly. You take off the lid and suddenly you've got a blob of red (or other color since they all do this) ink on your hands, shirt, pants, etc... The color ones do it more often but the black ones do it too.
They don't bleed through paper which is one of the best things about them for drawing/writing. If it weren't for the constant leaking and ruining my clothes these would be the best pens ever.
Was this a gift?:
