REVIEW – Believe it or not, it has been years since I started my search for a nice writing ballpoint pen. I have purchased several pens from online stores, in the under $30 price range, but none of them feel just write or should I say make me feel like that is the pen that I want to reach for each time I have to write. Now I get the chance to try another one. It is the Faber-Castell Hexo Pen. Hmmm!! I wonder which pile it will end up in.
What is it?
The Faber-Castell Hexo Pen is an anodized aluminum twist ballpoint pen designed for right-handed and left-handed users.
What’s in the box
1 x Faber-Castell Hexo Pen
Design and features
- Hexagonal barrel made of anodized aluminum
- Ergonomically shaped grip zone for comfortable writing
- For right-handed and left-handed users
- Solid metal clip
The pen is aluminum and comes in 3 colors: Black, Silver, and Rose. It has a twist top that moves the ballpoint refill in/out.
You can remove the refill by unscrewing the spring-loaded tip.
The pen writes beautifully. Do not judge me by my terrible handwriting.
What I like
- The sleek design
- Solid yet lightweight
- Writes nicely
- The metal clip
- The easy twist operation
What I’d change
- No complaints so far
The Faber-Castell Hexo Pen is a well built, lightweight pen that writes well, and feels great in my hand. Changing the refill is super easy, and the twist-action feels as if it will work well for a long time. So far, it is much better than any of the pens I have previously purchased in the =< $30 range.
