The Stalogy ballpoint pen is a low-viscosity pen from Nitoms, which is part of Japanese conglomerate Nitto. Nitoms is primarily known for their tape and stationery accessories, so while this pen might seem like an random Ebay or Amazon find, it actually comes from popular manufacturer of related products.
The Stalogy ballpoint has a full-body grip coating that is non-slip and glove-friendly. This is the same sort of material you’d fine on the outside of a Lenovo ThinkPad, often described as “soft touch” rubber. It’s over a body that appears to be a heavy-duty plastic. The top button, clip and front cone piece are made of chromed metal.
The refill on the Stalogy is an interesting one. It’s a short, plastic refill that looks like the “G” line of refills from Zebra. This is an odd size that is hard to replace, which is one of the reasons swapping the refill on the popular Zebra F-701 and G-301 can be such a challenge. It’s unclear how or why Stalogy ended up with this refill in a full-sized plastic pen, but it writes reasonably well. The refill is similar to the Zebra emulsion line of hybrid ballpoint inks, which is to say that it is a ballpoint with a smooth, lubricated feed to it. This type of modern ballpoint is versatile, easy to use, writes on many different surfaces, and reasonably fun to have around.
So in this video, I want to take a quick look at the Nitoms Stalogy low viscosity ballpoint pen usually refer to as the histology pain, and it's sold on Amazon. And eBay, usually on eBay, usually was shipped from Japan. It's made in Japan.
It's pretty interesting pen and one that's been recommended to me a number of times, So one check it out. Cells are about between six and $10 to call it like an $8 pen. It's is from a company called NiTome. Uh, it's known as Stalogy. Apparently, that's some sort of knowledge is, um, for stationary standard and technology. But if you look at the packaging, which is very simple to see low viscosity ballpoint, I think it's a hybrid ink, but they always call it ballpoint just on the side. There, smooth writing, non slip grip.
There's the name breakdown, but it is manufactured by Nitto. Uh, I was sort of NATO as a tire company, part of Toyo, but this isn't that Nitto. This is, ah, the conglomerate Nitto, and they make of fiberglass and plastics and all sorts of fabrics and stuff like that and the actual website being did. Just interesting fact there.
Not too much else to see from the packaging to Penn, Spain, Japan. It's about it. As for the pen itself is really simple. It's kind of old school. It's the full length of the pen is a non slip material. Even, says non-slip grip. In here, there's a lot of writing on it. You see, it says stationery, sent Technology and Low viscosity Oil based Inc Ballpoint Pen. So oil based is why a credible point s. So it's probably could be a hybrid. If it's a more high tech ballpoint, it's hard to say for pleasure. Also sort of splitting. Harris. Here is what some companies called ballpoint.
Others might call something else. 0.7 millimeters is a little bit on the wider side, and then there's some or writing. The link between stationery and people began when people first used a stick to draw on the ground. What should have been comma is, uh, it just doesn't really mean anything. I guess it's kind of cool. Leads there. Major pan number. 1503 millimeters in length. Very simple past that. We have a low profile kind of cheap feeling clip. I kind of like zebra uses on some pants, but not quite as nice. Very simple piece up front again, reminiscent of zebra and then just a metal clicker kind of in distinctive feel that in the whole body again, it's covered in this nonstick material, which I don't even see.
It is perpetually filthy. No matter what you do to clean this off, short of wiping it down, it will put pick up dust from anywhere S O. I find that to be really annoying. It is grippy. That's nice. I'm sure this writing will wear out over time, has a sort of grippy, sort of oily feel to it. Definitely not my favorite, but it's comfortable enough pens a little bit back. Heavy, I will say, which I find to be annoying and no interruption to the grip. You can't feel the writing. There's no grip area. All this is grippy. When doesn't really need to be so kind of a strange thing. There.
Open the pen up. We could see that the front piece is metal, which is nice, very tiny little spring here, which would be hard to replace, but kind of interesting. And then we see the refill and this looks just like a zebra gel refill to me. Oh, our Zebra emulsion refill. They kind of look the same. Uh, if you look at it closely, so hard to make out, but it does say probably just make it out. It does say Stalogy black, then 18 0 to maybe I don't know those numbers being but does taste ology on it. So I don't know if it was manufactured Bye zebra. Or maybe that's just in my head that this seems and feels like a zebra to me. But it is interesting that it is that kind of strange size that you see in F 701 and some other pens. So as far as for the body goes underwhelming, click pretty underwhelming as well. It's just kind of fine pen for 8 or $9 should get much nicer. Penn buys out there, so move on to the writing and this is the boat. The official name: Nitoms Stalogy. This costs. That's a tough word: Viscosity oil-based Full point. And so the writing is fine. There's really not a whole lot of character here, it writes like a hybrid or a newer ballpoint again writes a lot like kind of zebra or something that you have lying around doesn't really feel to me like anything super special. It's definitely reliable, and it gets the job done. But this is a sort of refill that you could pick up from almost any pennant. Look and see what's on my desk. Uh, and almost everything I have lying around is better here. Here's a for example, here's a timeline, which is the gel pen on. This is the Timeline from Pilot and a little hard to make out. The timeline definitely has a smoother rink. It's a gel to be fair, so it's not apple apples. It's a smoother, darker black on. It works better with this sort of cotton paper.
The low viscosity feel is true. You know it is a lubricated ink. But there's just not a whole lot to it that really makes it stand out to me.
It's a good pen. If this pen sold in your local pen store or in a supermarket and like that, I would definitely say go ahead and grab it it's gonna get a job if someone bought, you know, box of 110. It is for the office. And you could just grab one on the way. Your desk. Perfect pen for that. Something you're gonna hunt down on eBay or and pay $10 for wait two weeks for shipping that it doesn't really make sense To me. It's totally adequate pen, but I'm not particularly impressed with it. And, uh, yeah, it's fine, but it's not worth hunting down. So that about covers it.
Thanks for watching. Let me know if you have any different opinion.
