pilot hi-tec-c coleto multi-pen

a bit of a different post today, but i'm currently in stationery heaven and have to share the love!
my search for the perfect multi-pen has become a bit of a quirk; my mum put one in my stocking, lauren bought me one for my birthday, and i have bought a few myself and been disappointed. the colours are meh, they aren't nice to write with and they are always too chunky to fit in my filofax pen loop.
the muji pen that lauren gave me had come closest to being perfect- the colours were really cute and there was also a pencil and rubber added in too. annoyingly, the ink ran out insanely quickly, and i had a little accident (read: snapped the spring) trying to change the ink (sorry lauren!)

after a little google search, i came across the pilot hi-tec-c coleto which seemed to be popular, so i spent some time on ebay choosing what i'd like. |this seller| was super helpful, let me customise my refill colour choices, combined the p&p and it all arrived about a week and a half later. pretty sweet.

i bought a 4-pen barrel; there are loads of barrel colours to choose from, but predictably i went for this mint green which i love. the reason i love multi-pens so much is that i can colour code within my filofax and not be bogged down with tons of pens, so i tried to pick colours that i know work for that.

if there was a little rubber on top of this pen it would be absolutely perfect. i love the inks, they write so nicely and make a nice change from biro. the option to customise the pen however i want to is obviously the main selling point for me, and so far this hasn't disappointed.

...who knew i had so much to say about a pen?! if you've read this far, congrats, and welcome to the land of stationery obsessives ;)
