pen 14: uni-ball deluxe fine

so, a promised, while not shooting the undead, i went for the practical solution when it comes to protecting yourself in case you run into the walking dead.

one of the things that always bugs me in all those zombie movies the have been making for the last ten to fifteen years is that they never seem to run out of bullets, unless its like the climax of the story arc and they have to either shoot a propane tank or decide to take out a few of the zombies or save the last bullet for themselves... clearly that is what sticks out as s major glaring error and what makes the whole situation unbelievable...

anyway, the pen.
these babies are kinda pricey, $23 on amazon for a 12 pack. i know, that's still less than two dollars a pen but when compared to pen 08, it isn't really all that noticeable. the pen flows well, the bleed is minimal to almost moderate, it does fill in blacks faster than the micro but seems to run out of ink faster as well... now that i just read what i typed i'm thinking to myself: "duh, no kidding."

i think that the biggest thing it has going for it is that it's a good looking pen, it's exterior color is a light brushed bronze or brass, it looks professional and it's not the end of the world if you lose it.

so yeah, if you want to fill out a form, write a letter, sign whatever, this might be the way to go, if you're looking to ink a pencil sketch, make sure that you are working in a larger format, as the ink tends to bleed into other close lines and makes fine detail a hassle. im not saying it cant be done, ive done it myself, but there are far better pens out there for the same price that are better suited to that task.
