Pilot? Precise? V5 Liquid Ink Retractable Rollerball Pens, Extra Fine Point, 0.5 mm, Metallic Silver/Purple Barrel, Purple Ink, Pack Of 12
I meant to order some of the regular precise v5 pilot pens in purple, but got these, instead. Wonderful mistake! We all love these in the office! They write smoothly, don't skip, and you don't have to fumble with the lid constantly.

Pilot Rollerball Pens
Words of Advice: KEEP 'EM CAPPED!!! I have written with nothing but Pilot Extra Fine Rollerball pens for years and years. I absolutely love that they are now available in retractable (except for the fact that it seems ONLY blue and black are available for the refills!!!) I have only had a problem with leakage under 2 different circumstances. #1 A non-retractable, in my purse, that built up pressure while I was flying. Solution: Loosen the cap and put it in a zip-loc baggie to protect from POSSIBLE leakage. #2 If an uncapped Pilot OR a retractable is left "open" (Not retracted) they will leak IF they are touching a piece of paper (Mail, magazine, kleenex, paper napkin, etc.). It seems as if the paper products act like a sponge when the rollerball tip touches it. Otherwise, I've never had a problem with leakage. Best on the market as far as I'm concerned.

this is one of the Best writing instruments on the market, and the purple ink is very very pretty, but the pen LEAKS!!! careful where or how you store it. I bought a case of them, 1 dozen, and all but 3 of them have lost their ink because it leaked out, in large, nasty spots!!!! so if you plan on putting it in a pocket or in your purse, store it in a leak proof container, or you'll really be sorry!!!!
