The packaging is simple but clean. The pen and pencil arrive nestled in little "holders" in a felt-lined case with a clear, easy open top. Have you ever tried to gift wrap an individual pen? Well, it's pretty tough without making it look like a pen The little box here is handy, or you can just wrap a cute ribbon around it and present it as is (saves on wrapping paper too!).
The pencil is a 0.5 mm retractable mechanical pencil with an eraser under the cap of the clicker. Like all Pentel Super Hi-Polymer lead, the pencil writes smoothly and without a problem. Nice, dark lines that are not too soft and smudgy, nor too hard and crisp. It's a comfortable pencil to hold, and it's easy to advance the lead. It does the job and looks good while doing it!
The rollerball pen is filled with a black gel ink cartridge. I'm pretty taken with this pen, I will admit. It writes like the famous Pentel EnerGel-X pens do, of which I am a huge fan. This means it is 0.7 mm and smooth, consistent, and vivid. Of course, it is refillable, with two options - the regular EnerGel refills, or with a permanent black ink refill. Permanent ink refills as an option is pretty convenient, especially if you intend to use this pen as your everyday carry - good for signing checks and such.
Pentel - $39.95
This lovely pen and pencil gift set has quite impressed me. This really is a good-looking gift set that performs to the standard I expect from Pentel. And you can also think of the good you'll be doing for the environment by using refillable rather than disposable pens. I do feel they're a little pricy at $39.95, but the set makes a good gift that your recipients (or you) are bound to enjoy and it will last for years to come.
