I really like how the pencil mechanism is built into the clip. I know it sounds trivial but sometimes you have to look at a multi and turn it upside down or shake it or squint to see which actual color you are trying to get. But I could find the pencil portion of this without looking and the ink color markers are clear. There's also a REALLY satisfying clunk when you change colors.
The oil based ink is light and water resistant and really does flow nicely across the paper.
The clip had a little sticker on it letting me know that there was indeed a 0.5 pencil in here. Need to advance the lead? Just press down on the clip a little more. Easy. These come in a ton of flavor and styles, and if you are interested, head over to Jetpens and take a look. It could change your mind also, unless you already like multi's then well, have a cupcake and enjoy.
