I just love pens & pencils. So I love when it is back to school time and I have even more of a reason to acquire new pens & pencils. The timing of Zebrapen.com brand reaching out to me was perfect. I was so excited when I got my Zebra package in the mail & quickly went to work putting these pens & pencils to test for our up coming school year.
The Z-grip medium point pen is meant to provide excellent performance with also making a statement. This pen did just that. It writes wonderfully. I love the Z-grip handle for writing with ease & it feels great in my hand. Every one in my family tested this pen and wanted to keep one for themselves & my family is pen PICKY let me tell you so this pen passes the test. It is going to be great addition to our new school year.
In this next picture below is the Sarasa rapid ink dry gel pens. They are also smudge proof which is perfect I get so annoyed with smudgy pens! So, I already have a main mission for these
( & a tip for you). We have a new back to school day planner shown in the picture with a monthly & daily outlook. I love to use different colored inks for different subjects, dates,appointment types and topics of importance, not to mention to do list . I also use the different colors to sort categories, each one will represent one. My teen will also be using these in some of her art projects this year.
The Sarasa gel retractable pens did in fact write amazing & will do the trick. These will be wonderful to help our family stay organized in the planner. I love how these gel pens seem to be more durable than other gel pens I have used recently. I love the vibrant colors! What is even more surprising is these are refillable. There are a lot of gel pen brands that are not. This makes me super happy because it does help the planet. Also they come in a sturdy reusable clear case for easy storing. I think Zebra thinks of everything!
Ok now to the highlight of my testing. My favorite pen was the F-402 fine point stainless steel pen! This was the writing tool of my dreams. It is everything I would of wanted in a pen. It's weight is perfect, durable, beautiful, classic in design with the stainless steel, fine point writing with the comfort smooth rubber grip. This pen is the best one I have used in years for writing. I love the way it feels in my hand.
The mechanical pencil was just as amazing. The pencil will be perfect for school this year. I have no doubt these writing tools will last me for years. I am grateful they are both refillable for years of service to come.
Below I dive into more detail about each product and share final thoughts. I am awarding Zebra my Homemaker-Mom Seal of Approval for outstanding quality. Thank you Zebra!
