Poor quality nibs led to poor quality writing. Would definitely not recommend this product to anyone.

I got this pen set for myself. I have saw this same set online, at other companies for way more than its worth. Don't get me wrong this is a good standard pen set. Overstock has the best deal on this pen set I've seen so far. I saw that Overstock also, carries other Calligraphy products at nice prices as well. And to get this with free shipping, when others charge ridiculous prices. Shop here first. It did take a while for it to get to me. But came in good condition. Thanks Overstock!!!!!!

The pens did not work very well. Some of the pens were dried up. None of the pens actually Puff the ink.This was a big waste of my money. I could have just used my puff paints that I have already and had better results. And if I would not have been in such a rush to used the pens that I threw away the bag they came in I would have returned them.

I have been using these pens for years; the only problem in the past few has been finding them in a store. But Overstock.com still has them available. I have my brass-nibbed calligraphy pens for fine work, but for something you can carry in your pocket and depend on its not leaking, these are my constant shirt-pocket companion. I've made a lot of friends over the years with these. When I meet someone new, as a memory aid, I write their name in 20 different fonts and then hand them the 3x5 card. They have a colorful memento of the occasion and people have told me they've kept that 3x5 card on their dresser for decades. They see it every morning and remember the calligrapher who wrote it. The points are hard enough to give you a good, clean line, but soft enough that you can do tricks like turning the point for the down-left strokes of copperplate scripts to make them look proper, the way they never could with the ballpoint pens you were taught with in school. They seem to last quite a long time, but, at this price, it's nice to have another pen, another color, waiting for me when this one finally goes dry. And they never leak in my pocket the way my brass-nibbed fountain pens do.

I do a lot of card making and good pens are important. So I went by the Fiskar name which I shoudn't have done. Right now I'm doing a project were I need some good sparkle pens and these are not. I had told several others about what I thought was going to be a good deal. I showed them and they agreed.

I was surprized that all the pens had the gel in them. I had sen them in a couple of stores and alot of the pens did not have the gel in them. All the pens worked fine. I brought them for my mother and had them delivered to her in TX. I was there there when they arrived. It had just about all the colors she needed for her drawings. I will be ordering more when she needs more.

I love Sakaura Pens for all my art projects, writing letters, and more. These are the best.

These are calligraphy felt markers with the chisel-shaped point. I have been using them for years and have been very satisfied. Yes, I have my old Osmiroid fountain pens and some others for formal work, but for something to carry around in your pocket that you can count on not leaking yet still give you good quality on the spot, I keep coming back to these markers by Speedball. Unlike hard metal nibs, you can rotate the point to get an extremely fine line at all angles, so they work for a good everyday pen too. They've gotten hard to find lately so I was happy to see that Overstock.com still had them available.

I am enjoying my pens. The only thing you need to remember is to not rush or you may smear your artwork. Overall I am very pleased with this assortment and it even includes WHITE which is a hard color to come by.

I am a cardmaker and use the gel pens for coloring and adding accents. I have found that for the most part the pens are good. I did notice however, that some of them skip and some don't seem to have much ink. For the price, it was a good deal

These pens r great for craft projects, scrapbooking, and drawing. I have been looking everywhere for a set of gel pens and the biggest set I could find was around 8 or 10 pens and they weren't cheap either. This set gives u every color u can imagine and at a great price! Ordering was easy and I was surprised how quickly I received them. Very happy customer!

These pens are the best and its a good price for the quantity that you get. I almost went to another store to get the same type of pens for a lesser quantity and same price. But I'm glad that I went with Overstock.

Love the product, delivered promptly as promised. I don't understand why Overstock won't ship to a PO Box when that's where my stuff always ends up anyway.
