I love pens and pencils. It's very hard for me to not purchase them on a grocery trip. I really love them, so I purchased these on a whim. They were rather expensive, but I love pens so I thought I would try them. Unfortunately, they bled through paper and I did not like that. Being a college student, I try to take notes as effectively and efficiently as I can and bleeding through papers does not do that for me. Also, the thickness of the felt tip slurred some of my writing. If you like that kind of pen, this is the pen for you. If you don't, then don't purchase it.
