Pilot Precise V5 and Pilot Precise Grip Review

Here is the next in my series of Reasonable Office Supplies reviews. In particular, I concentrated on the V5 version of the Pilot Precise. They also make a V7. Without further ado, here is the scan of my hand-written two-part review:

These pens come in a myriad of colors and while I have read a lot of praise for these pens, to me they are just so-so. The writing experience is fairly smooth with the V5, but I cannot recomment the Grip version due to the scratchiness and occasional skipping. If you want to go for the Precise, go for the V5.

Bic Cristal Gel and Cristal Clic Gel Review

Sorry for the delay in posts. Here is a review of the Bic Cristal Gel (stick version) and the Bic Cristal Clic Gel pens.

This is the first post in my "Reasonable Office Supplies" series. In the upcoming weeks I will be reviewing typical pens/pencils that you would see in a typical business environment. Tentatively, I have planned reviews for the Uni-Ball Onyx Micro, Uni-Ball Vision Elite, Pilot G2/G-Knock, Uni-Ball Jetstream, and the typical Papermate/Bic ballpoints. That is subject to change, of course. I will also take recommendations from readers if they want to see a particular pen/pencil reviewed, that I already have or can get for a reasonable price.

After my series of reviews, I will be doing a giveaway of some of the products I am reviewing. Stay tuned!

Without further ado, here is my written review of the Bic Cristal Gel and Bic Cristal Clic Gel.
