Stationery | Sheaffer Ion Pen Review

Friday, June 23, 2017

On the back of national stationery week and my love of stationery, I have recently agreed to review a Sheaffer Ion pen, this small and compact pen measures just 3.5 inches at its smallest.

The pen is a rollerball and the ink has a gel consistency. My pen has black in, I’m not sure if they all do and it retails for £12.99, It comes in a range of 6 colours and I received the purple one which I love (I think it’s billed as lilac but I’d say it’s more of a true purple) The other colours are; black, blue, red, green and white.

I’ve been keeping my pen in the inside pocket of my work bag and it’s handy if I need to make changes or add notes in my planner. The ink pictured isn’t this pen as I took the pictures as soon as I received it. (Update Pictures)

Initially I struggled to open the pen, for some reason I kept unscrewing the barrel. I’m not sure why I struggled as it is very simple. You remove the cap and then extend the barrel to its full length, releasing the nib so it can be used. The nib is a medium width and is what we say in my family “A nice writer”, meaning it has a good and smooth flow. It doesn’t leave blobs or streaks and dries quickly.

The pen has a chunky barrel which works well for me, I broke my hand a few years ago and since then I struggle to hold thin pens and need a bigger barrel. I also like that the pen extends to reveal the nib and this not only protects it but it makes it feel like a real pen (how many fake pens have you used recently? Me and well!)

I’m really pleased with this pen and think I will use it a lot, as I’ve said the small size makes it handy to keep with me at all times and works well for my new cute planner. I think that might need its own post.Stationery | Sheaffer Ion Pen Review

I was sent the pen as a review item and as always all opinions and words are my own.

  6. That's a cute looking pen, and I do like a good writer. Nothing worse than a scratchy nib. Nice colour, although I'd probably have to have the red.
