Zebra Telescoping Pen

The zebra telescoping pen is a small and affordable pen that goes from about 5cm to 8cm when extended. To extend and collapse the pen you just push or pull, when expanded the pen is ready to write when collapsed the tip of the pen is covered so you can't write with the collapsed version.

The pen is made in aluminium and uses common refills, it is compatible with Fisher Space Pen Universal refills (not the ones for the Fisher Bullet Pen).

This pen has a pocket clip of good quality to clip the pen to pockets, wallets or a notepad, it does not have a small hole or attachment point for a splitring or a lanyard so it is not suitable for a keychain or neck carry. It writes fine with the normal refill and that can be improved changing to a Fisher refill as mentioned. The grip is very good and the pen is really nice to carry and use.

Retailing for less then $5 in most supply stores and supermarkets the Zebra Telescoping Pen is a small and affordable pen for EDC carry. You can read more in Zebra's website.

someone gave me one of these. i didn't like it. try the cross ion instead. not quite as thin but more comfortable and less likely for the tip to be exposed in your pocket. nice thought but not edc worthy.

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.

I bought one of these after years of using a Cross Ion. The Ion constantly has problems with the ink cartridge, the ink doesn't flow freely. I consistently had "dry-out" happening within the first 2 weeks of adding a new cartridge and had to shake it vigorously in order to get the ink flowing again.

That said, the Zebra has much better ink flow. Not a single problem after 2 months. Unfortunately, the Zebra's telescoping is not as good as the Cross Ion. I never had the tip exposed accidently with the Ion, not once in over 5 years of use. The Zebra's tip is exposed EVERY TIME I take it out of my pocket, even though I'm a very thorough person and ensure it is completely collapsed when I put it in my pocket. No ink stains yet, but I don't plan on using this for much longer. If only Cross would improve their ink flow...
