2018-10-10 11:32:23 UTC Cheap feeling, but not so much that it falls apart at the seams, just not very fancy. I ordered more.

2018-10-10 11:34:36 UTC Well made, takes a bit to un-crush it from shipping, but stands up well on its own. On the smaller side, but super neat. Bought more.

2018-10-10 11:36:16 UTC Suuuper cheap, and looks it, but quality isn't bad. You'll look kinda like Mickey Mouse as a wizard.

2018-10-10 11:37:51 UTC Quality is good, fits my big-ass head. I bought more. Little star up top is pretty much just flat though, so might flop over.

2018-10-10 11:38:04 UTC  

@timsandtoms why did you buy so many

2018-10-10 11:38:40 UTC  

Work at a retail store. Got one for all the employees at the customer service desk two years back, the whole front-end last year, going for the whole store this year.

Worth noting is that MOST of these aren't going to be super fluffy inside, they're more on the scratchy side and have disappointing pompoms. Usually. I can check specific ones for whatever if anyone actually wants info on one, but that seems like a lot of effort unless someone actually wanted to know. Usually these are more of a wear it for a couple of evenings type things.

We have those SOMEWHERE in the store, we just haven't done all the Christmas resets yet.

2018-10-10 11:43:59 UTC  

So those I'll get at work.

2018-10-10 11:44:06 UTC

keychain balls

2018-10-11 18:28:21 UTC  

perfect chinkmas gift

2018-10-15 04:32:44 UTC  

I own a couple of these pens and I've bought them for others. Edgy spike aside, they're comfy as fuck and very durable, they also take standard Parker pen refills

@Matthew could you do us a favour and see how hard it is to break something like a beer bottle with it? The degenerates that have just moved into my complex don't break down their rubbish so the recycling bins are always full. Looking for something to break glass with so our inside bin is more space efficient

2018-10-15 07:56:41 UTC  

Just get 2x4 wood plank

2018-10-15 08:09:21 UTC  

Not space efficient or quiet + my recycling bin is a fairly small target

2018-10-15 08:18:39 UTC  

Break glass with a pen?

2018-10-15 08:18:45 UTC  


2018-10-15 10:06:20 UTC  

Yes it has a glass breaking function dear,

2018-10-15 12:42:39 UTC  

@kylemd The breaker tip is plenty hard enough to break glass bottles, but I wouldn't recommend shoving your hand into a bin of glass trying to break it. I personally use the breaker tip more as a scribe to mark measurements and whatnot

i love bolt action pens
