“Newhard” is a kind of the oil-based ballpoints produced by Zebra. Most of Japanese people are considered to have seen the pens lying at offices or other working places.



"Newhard 0.7"

Weight: 79 g
Diameter: 0.7 mm
Price: 80 Yen + tax

We can easily know how much the ink is left out of a lucid pipe. Moreover, it is so cheap ( just 80 yen! ) that we can be easy to use. If goes on an emergency like losing or breaking, there will hardly be regret.

Ballpoints are very important to adult persons. When you write your name on precious papers or write down an address for a home delivery service, ballpoint pens work better than pencils and automatic pencils. Adult men without ballpoints are just like hawks without any nails.

The standard of ballpoints must be oil-based ones, I have believed so. Real things always spike someone’s plans, however. I heard that water-based ballpoints were more popular than used to be and the scale of oil-based ones at the Japanese market was on the decrease.

In the stationery field, there is also rapid advance. Then, you can find and have good water-based ballpoint pens so easily. I will choose oil-based ones for a use at an official scene, but. The solidity makes belief upon papers and it is very useful on most kinds of paper. After all, oil-based ballpoint pens are the best partner of adult persons. The top must be “Newhard.”
