The new Zebra Blen attempts to reduce stress associated with writing by having a pen that is relaxing to use. The pen has a low center of gravity, controlled writing vibration, noise free writing control, ink blur control, and dense and smooth ballpoint ink. Available in blue, black, and red ink. (Black and Gray bodies have black ink.) Available in both .5mm and .7mm tip sizes. Refills available.

  • Designed by Tokyo based design studio Nendo
  • Brass weight placed in the tip of the pen lowers its center of gravity
  • Stays more stable in your grip!
  • Ergonomic design
  • Featured in our Best of 2018 set!

Very comfortable to write with! My mother has essential tremor in her hands (mild to moderate), and she found that the weight and shape of these really helped her write more clearly. I got one .7 and one .5 mm to use for myself, but ended up passing the .7 onto her- she found the .7 easier to write with at various slanted vs. upright angles, whereas the .5 requires more precision. The pen writes very smoothly, and it has excellent weight and shape. Recommend!

Got it in 0.7 black and gray. Its pros: (1) slightly heavier weight at the tip's end, (2) rubberized grip section which extends close to the pen's tip, (3) grip width which provides for a comfortable hold, (4) retractable end stays put which gives a visual cue as to whether the tip is extended or retracted, and (5) dark and smooth ink. It amazes me that I haven't come across many others who find this ink/ink refill to be the best of all the hybrids on the market. I've used the Pentel Vicuna, Uniball Jetstream, and Pilot Acroball which all produce gaps (railroading) -- does this have more to do with the ink or the rolling ball at the tip of the refill?? Zebra's emulsion refills produce a dark and consistent ink line. The features I don't care for is the width between the clip area (it took 17 sheets of paper for the pen to hold securely) and the tip number on the retractable end (more useful feature if it were a technical/artist pen or if it were nonrefillable) Overall, I'm enjoying thi
