He is currently looking to collect 1,000,000 more pens to work on projects to re-use and recycle the vast waste generated by disposable pens.

We have reached the final post in this 3 part series of the Uni ball Power Tank pen…and the results might be a bit surprising. I managed to successfully freeze all of the pens in a test tube and get some more writing samples from each of them. I also did a quick test to see how each of these pens write on wet paper.
