Pen Review: Black Drawing Pen Comparison

In today’s post and video, I am testing and reviewing the JetPens Drawing Pen Sampler – Fine Tip. You can watch the video here but below I have summarized my review. Since the picture is a bit small, I have included a pdf. download file for you.


I want to start with a quick disclaimer. Paper choice is everything! I used the Rhodia dot grid paper pad to do the testing. This is smoother than average paper so I just want you to know that these would work differently on planners such as Erin Condren or Happy Planner. In the short clip I share below, I used a Moleskin notebook for your reference. Now, on to the pens!

I hope you have found this information useful. Are any of these pens in your favourites category? Let me know down in the comments. I always love seeing other peoples’ favourite pens and why they like them! Sometimes there are other applications that I don’t realize and then I like to test it out.
