    • Cap can fall off easily

    Best Uses

      Comments about GENE MEYER HORIZONTAL STRIPED PEN:

      I have this pen in roller ball and fountain. The pen itself is a bit heavy, but not a problem for me; the cap tends to fall off easily and was lost recently. The fountain nib dried out easily and I cannot get it to write again even with refills. I'm sure there is some adjustment that is needed and I am not a pen tech. If I could replace the internal part of the fountain with another internal part of a rollerball, I would certainly do it.

        Comments about GENE MEYER HORIZONTAL STRIPED PEN:

        The pen has a nice weight and is very stylish. I don't know if I would keep it, but I have the matching business card case and it's nice to have a set. I bought this for myself, but if I had received it as a gift, it would have been even better.

        • Gift for dad

        Comments about GENE MEYER HORIZONTAL STRIPED PEN:

        I received this pen (to give as gift) too close to Christmas to exchange it. Its major charm is the colorful design, and there was a small but clear black mark in the yellow stripe just below the cap line. It was visible while still in the gift box, so the makers or sellers should have easily spotted it. Still nice-ish, but not the knockout gift I'd hoped to give.

              This pen is very stylish and I feel great when I use it. It is a very nice pen and the ink is very bold. It is a bit heavy, but not uncomfortable to write with. It is a classy, but fun pen and I love it!

                Eh, it's colorful but not really worth the price. I'm actually hesitant to use it because of that factor. Makes for a good gift, though!
