The weight and balance of the pen make it feel really solid and versatile in the hand.
The design is minimalist, but nevertheless communicates a kind of "stature" that Daniel really likes.
The ink flow is incomparable: it just glides across the page.
For the price, it's one of the best pens on the market.
Daniel and the rest of our staff are really enamored with the quality of this pen, and our customers are too! That's why the Hemisphere Ballpoint stands out among other ballpoint pens and is also one of our company best sellers.
If you're thinking about buying this pen, perhaps personalize it with your very own signature engraving.

It's super functional: The Tech 3+ offers a twist-action cycling mechanism that transforms a single pen into three different writing instruments (a black ballpoint, a red ballpoint, and a 0.5mm mechanical pencil). It also has a stylus tip on the back for touchscreen navigation and interaction.
The thinner barrel fits the hand really well: TJ just doesn't enjoy writing with a cigar-sized, corporate-style luxury pen because he likes function without overpacking the experience. The Tech 3+ synthesizes a whole bunch of different functions within a slim, sleek barrel design.
The finish feels really good: This is definitely an underrated aspect of the pen. A bad finish can make even the best writing pen feel a little aggravating, but TJ loves the finish on these because it's the perfect balance between grippy and smooth.
The weight is solid: Because of all the internal components, the pen is just a bit heavier than most pens in its size range. So it feels like your really wielding it, really writing with a tool and not just a fancy piece of luxury and gadgetry.
These are the reasons TJ says he loves his Tech 3+, and I think they're pretty solid reasons to go for a hyper-functional pen.
They make great gifts for loved ones who need multi-faceted use out of their personalized pens.
It writes unbelievably smoothly: a Braxton set comes standard with a rollerball and a ballpoint pen. Both pens exceed every expectation and surpass most other pens worth two or three times the price of the Braxton.
It comes at a super affordable price for such an enjoyable writing experience:
The weight and barrel size are perfect: Mary says she doesn't have to adjust her grip a lot, so her hand is less tired over longer periods of writing.
That's why Mary's top choice of pen is the Braxton.
It's got a completely unique design: it just LOOKS and FEELS so cool. Instead of a rounded barrel, the Exception is squared with four sides. It makes the pen really stand out, aesthetically speaking.
Besides its looks, it has Waterman's signature smooth writing experience: Sam loves using the ballpoint, but the rollerball version is even smoother!
Sam said: "I'm kind of mad about how much I love this pen. I tried it out thinking it would be overrated...but I just love it. It's the weight and balance of the pen that really get me. It's so perfectly weighted that I could write with it for hours without my hand cramping or feeling like I need to press harder."
It can offer a general special feeling: it's not likely that you'll meet someone else with this pen, but if you did you'd have a surprising amount to talk about. Sign your name with one of these, and you'll feel like a mighty mogul.
This pen is, in the words of Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone 2, "luxurious and spacious." It's somewhere in the highest heights of luxury. It is definitely the most expensive pen in this list ($299.99-$339.99), but Sam thinks it's worth every penny if you're looking for something in that range.
The Jotter is another best seller we offer, and it also ranked #7 in The Strategist's List of the 100 Best Pens. I think it's obvious why, but here's why I love it:
It's got a really solid body: It feels like the kind of thing I could use if I was running through a collapsing temple like Indiana Jones and I needed to prop a downward-closing door open in order to roll quickly underneath it and make my escape. It might also helpful if you find yourself in an enemy spaceship's trash compactor and need something to brace against the walls. The Parker Jotter: the right pen for when the walls are closing in.
It's super lightweight without feeling cheap: There's almost no plastic in the pen, so it doesn't rattle like a cheap click pen.
The CLICK: Probably the most satisfying part for me, a chronic fidgeter, is the resonance and satisfaction I feel just using the click action. Apologies to all the people who just simply CANNOT with people who click pens repeatedly.
Customer reviews of the Jotter pretty much tell the same story: personalize this this custom pen product, and you'll keep it forever.
Anyway, that's why I love my Jotter!
