I remember these pens from when I went to school ions ago. Wanted a little something extra to embellish the pages of my journals and doodles, something to keep the creative juices flowing. These pens are AMAZING! They write smoothly and seem to inspire tons of new creations. The make the ho-hum workday a little extra special...honestly I cannot recommend these pens enough. Sakura has to be one of my favorite pen brands.
