Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 0.3 MM Super Fine Point Pens

Staedtler is a brand that I grew up using at school and home.  In South America you can find their pens and pencils everywhere.  To my surprise here in the US they are not as common.  They are very good quality writing instruments, and they have a nice selection, specially for architects and drafters.

During one of my last visits to the office store I found the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner.  Even thought I had never seen this specific product back home I knew that this brand would not dissapoint.   And it didn't. 

The 0.3 mm tip is very nice to write with, at least for me (If you like to press the pen hard against the paper this might not be the right product for you).  The barrel is an interesting triangular shape that provides a comfortable hold when writing.  The case shown here comes with 10 different vibrant colors.  The ink is acid free making it ideal if you like scrap-booking  or crafting.  Also it comes with Staedtler award winning case that snaps to the back and holds the fine liners upright.   All their products are made in Germany. 


PS:  I went back to Staples and they now have Staedtler colored pencils, erasers, and pencil sharpeners; hopefully soon they'll have their complete writing line.
