Where to buy Passion4Pens
Both pens have the same shape - slightly larger barrels that taper towards the tip and center, then flare outwards towards the end. A metal ring circles the center of the pen, separating the barrel section from the clip section. It has Perraz written on. The clip is also metal and is unremarkable in that it is not an unusual or weird design. I feel it matches the pen's design well.
PERFORMANCE & USE
Well, there's not much to report in this section. The Gipsy pens are ballpoint pens, so it's basically they either work or they don't. And they do! Quite well, as a matter of fact. There were no hard starts and once the pens were going, they wrote well. No ink blobs either, which was a relief, because that would really ruin it. As such, there is no smearing of the ink so this is safe for left-handed users. This is a function of the refill though so if you are interested in this pen, make sure you are picking up quality refills and don't just stick a garbage refill in here!
The Perraz Gipsy ballpoints surprised me in how comfortable and nice they are in hand. The barrels are a perfect size and are nicely contoured for being held in one's grip. I truly am pleased with the comfort of this pen. It's just awesome. I am also a big fan of acrylic pens in general because they don't get slippery during long writing sessions and feel nice and warm to the touch after being in hand.

- Very comfortable to write with.
- Very pretty!
- It's "just" a ballpoint.
Sometimes you need a ballpoint, and these are quite decent ones to carry around with you. Great price and quality refills available all over the place. The acrylic bodies are also very attractive and comfortable to use! I really like them and the prices are very reasonable.
