The Pilot Envelope Address Writing Pen (From JetPens) sounded kind of like a strange idea to me at first when I read about it over at The Pen Addict, but now that I had the chance to pick one up from JetPens, I have a little bit of a different opinion.
The version I picked up was the Extra Fine, and although I seems to write a tiny bit thicker than I thought it would, it’s still pretty fantastic. The line is really quite dark, and the pen doesn’t even think about skipping while it lays down its super smooth line. I tried it out on a few different envelopes, including one that was made 100% of bubble wrap, so it was a bit of a slick surface, but surprisingly it still wrote with a nice bold line, and didn’t smear. After the experience with the bubble wrap, I also tried it out to see if it would work on the signature panel of a credit card, and as long as you write slow with it, it works really well.
Now although the Pilot Envelope Address Writing Pen is not designed for every day writing, I still couldn’t help but try it out on my Black n Red Notebook. Again, the writing experience was fantastic, it writes with a bold black ink that is super smooth and doesn’t skip. This might even be a good pen for some of you left-handed writers to try out.
