J. Herbin Refillable Rollerball Pen is rated 4.1778 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from J. Herbin vs. Visconti I purchased this pen to see how it compared to the Visconti Eco-Roller. The J. Herbin pen is much smaller, the Visconti is the same size and girth as they're associated fountain pen. The J. Herbin writes with a finer line than Visconti, I'm able to legibly use it on the cheapest paper I have, Ampad Efficiency Setno Book, with very little bleed through. Since each persons writing style is different the bleed through will vary. The only draw back I have is on the size, the pen is small, I usually like smaller pens as I have a small hand. With the cap posted the smallness is forgotten. Would definitely recommend and purchase for gifting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5 stars until it cracked Overall, this is a great pen at a great price. The flow from the rollerball tip is better than other refillable pens I have used. Also, the size is great (I clip it to my Traveler's Notebook). Unfortunately, the barrel of the pen cracked at the threads during normal use. Now, when I attempt to remove the cap from the pen, the barrel comes off instead (the cap snaps on pretty tightly, which is otherwise a plus). I can't say that this is a basic flaw in the pen, because my single experience does not constitute a statistical sample. Still, a word to the wise on this pen - treat it very gently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Herbin Rollerball Pen So far I have used three inks in the pen. Noodlers Bulletproof Black, Diamine Royal Blue, and Parker Quink Blue. The Noodlers Bulletproof Black was in the pen for a week and a half before I started having trouble with drying out. The Diamine Royal Blue also started drying and an effort was needed to get the pen started. The Parker Quink Blue has given no problems one week into use. The only pen characteristic that is noticeable is slight scratchiness. I think the scratchiness is the ball not being a tight fit in the point which could be the manufacturers method of letting ink move past the ball when writing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cartridge Converter If desiring to use bottled ink with this pen, look no farther than the Monteverde Mini Converter, which fits this pen well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like nerdy glasses... ...and by that I mean held together with tape. I love this little pen and I own two of them. I love that it makes this soft whirring scratching sound when you write. Checking off something on a To Do list is more satisfying. I use J.Herbin catridges that I had around and refill using the Goulet 5ml Ink Syringe Set. I usually change to a contrasting color without cleaning the pen so that there is a random color transition in my notes/letters. I like the size and the lightness. However (this is where the tape and lost star comes in), screwing the barrel in on both of these has cracked them. In order to keep the barrel secure I wrapped tape around the cracked part of the barrel and they hold up fine even if it's kind of goofy. I would give them 5 stars if they were made of something a little more indestructable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from J.herbin refillable rollerball pen I love this pen. I prefer a slightly Wider point but having a pen I can fill with my own ink is great. The ink flows smoothly and the pen fits perfectly in my hand. I use the pump converter so my ink is my choice. I love Waterman blue black , now mysterious ink bottle is almost empty so I fill everything by syringe with a long needle.(I work for a MD)also it is less messy as I am clumsy and usually have blue fingers. Thanks for your website,pens and ink.i love writing by hand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serviceable Rollerball Pen is compact 4 5/8 inches capped, very comfortable 5 1/2 inches posted. Only uses international cartriges, cannot be used as eyedropper without pluging hole(s) at end of barrel. Good flow, writes with a medium line. Using Private Reserve "Velvet Black" and pen actually writes a little wet. Recieved mine with a crack at the thread end of the barrel. Crack does not extend to edge of barrel and does not interfere with the pen's function. I do like that I can throw this pen around and carry it in a shirt pocket without concern that it may leak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Novel idea! I have very large hands, so when I opened the box and saw how small this rollerball was, I got worried. Would it be comfortable to write with? I can easily answer yes. It performs very nicely, just the way a standard rollerball pen would. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 for two very specific reasons: 1- The pen is a bit scratchy when I use it. I am getting used to it, but it is not what I would expect a pen I don't plan to throw away would behave, and 2- There is no option for a larger size. I can't write with the pen unposted comfortably, and WITH the cap on, it's so light, I just can't imagine using it for long periods of time. For someone with smaller hands, it might be perfect for them. I only intended to ink it up with a nice red ink for use with strikeouts and corrections, so it suits my needs perfectly.
