Since I've been interested in multi-pens lately, I thought I'd check out this Pentel Karen C4 multi-pen, especially as I loved the pastel colors. It's not a bad pen, but it is a ball point and the line is too small for my taste although I normally love 0.5mm gel ink pens.
The pen itself is cute but not too cute: the pastel colors are lovely, and the green ink deploys when you press down on the pen clip, which is definitely cute. But I'm just not that into ballpoints, and I couldn't get into writing with this. I'm thinking a gel ink hack is in order, and will have to compare it to my Hi-Tec-C ink refills to get a sense if any will work. Otherwise, into the pen tray it goes for those rare times I need a ballpoint.
