Dear Pilot Pen,

I must apologize for typing this letter. If you saw my handwriting you’d understand why it is necessary (my girlfriend makes fun of it and calls it “Christopher at 5” and I have to admit it looks like a doctor’s or serial killer’s).

Anyway, I do a lot of singing of letters. Sometimes three or four a day. Previously I used a Papermate Flexgrip Ultra Medium point pen to sign all my letters. That pen doesn’t have the best flow, but the ink looks good on paper and it doesn’t really smudge much. Recently, I ended up using one of your Pilot Precise V5 Extra Fine pens and I have to say, not only is it a more stylish pen, it also glides across the page effortlessly and doesn’t smudge at all! I’m using it nearly exclusively!

This pen is great, but this got me thinking that there might be something better out there, so I started to do some research on the internet, and I had no idea there were so many pen nuts out there! There are whole sites dedicated to nothing but pen reviews. Before using the Precise V5 Extra Fine pen I would have never understood how a person could get so excited about a pen.

I love this pen and am going to use it to sign this letter!

Special thanks to The Pen Addict for initially hosting this letter. I like guest posting on other sites. It’s fun to interact with an audience different than my own.

For the record, I do love this pen. It’s a Jackass Letters exclusive. I seldom use anything else these days. It was pointed out in comments on that site that the Pilot Precise V5 Extra Fine also comes in a retractible. As soon as the ones they sent me die you can rest assured I will be trying those!
