Looking on my desk for inspiration, I find myself wondering just how many pens a girl needs. That said I like to make sure that there is always one to hand albeit for something as simple as a telephone message or shopping list.
The Zebra Jimnie retractable ballpoint pen is just the kind of thing I'd use for those day to day tasks. The red ballpoint has a transparent barrel (handy for keeping check of the ink level) & is tinged with pinky red hues that is met by a soft rubberised grip. I find it to be a good fit in my hand & the grip is comfortable making the pen easy to write with & the ink flows smoothly through the 1.0mm tip.
The pocket clip provides a good space for the logos & is sturdy enough to clip on a notepad without slipping & will ensure it stays put by the phone. I can't think of anything more annoying than having to go search for something to write with in the middle of a conversation.
All in all a perfectly acceptable ballpoint, nothing fancy, just something reliable for note taking & the reliable retractable mechanism is a bonus. This particular Jimnie is also available with black & blue ink. When the ink runs dry you can use Zebra K refills.
