With our thoughts turning to school, study (and who knows if you’re lucky, writing the odd postcard) we’re showcasing the uni-Eye rollerball collection as our pen of the month.
The uni-ball Eye’s history
The Mitsubishi Pencil Company created the first uni-ball rollerball in 1979. Its excellent quality and fantastic writing finish made it an instant success. Building on this, uni-ball Eye rollerball was developed and launched in 1994. It is still one of the world’s most popular rollerballs. Why? Because we combine quality, innovation and design to deliver an exceptional writing experience every time.
One of the most amazing things about the Eye range is that it’s available in range of nib sizes and colours to suit your writing preference or a particular project, here we run through each pen in the range. All the pens combine style and substance and feature a handy ink window in the barrel to indicate your ink levels, so you won’t get caught out
Do you know someone who likes to write small and precise? The uni-ball Eye Needle is made for people who wish to fill every bit of their pages with tiny text or intricate, delicate doodles.
While this needle tip can create refined, delicate writing, it’s no wimp. The 0.5mm nib may be fine, but its strong needle tip can withstand heavy pressure without bending or breaking. Plus the Eye’s smooth-flowing solid pigment ink makes writing legible at practically any size. This is a discerning, thoughtful choice for a someone who loves to write down their thoughts and make little notes.
As you’d expect from this much loved pen, the Eye’s ink is water resistant, fade-free and tamper proof, making it an excellent choice for short notes, important documents or lengthy written projects.

The Eye Needle is available in black, blue, red and green with coordinating barrel colour.

However we also think the Eye Fine is the actually the perfect range for bullet journals and some creative adult colouring in and doodling (we love making mandalas with this range).
Some of us like a neat, compact writing style and some of us like to be bold and write broad!
