I have seen a lot of reviews on these pens. Almost everyone agrees that they are wonderful pens and that they last for years. A lot of people continue to complain about cleaning the pens, and about the fragility of the tip of the pen (you can bend the wire inside the tip if you aren't careful while cleaning it, rendering the pen useless).

I've only been using Radiograph pens for three years now, but I use them constantly. I draw with them and, for the past two years, I have used them to take hundreds of pages of notes in class. I write with them instead of using regular pens. Using these pens requires a somewhat gentle hand. If you don't use them properly, you are likely to break them and you will wear them down very quickly.

As far as claims in other reviews that the pens stop working or that the ink clogs constantly - I have not ever had a problem with this.
If you leave ink in the pens and you do not use them for a number of months, you will have to clean the pens. (This is true of any pen that takes a thicker, more potent ink.) This involves careful disassembly. Cleaning these pens is very similar to trying to clean older calligraphy pens - you're bound to have ink all over your hands for a day or two, but, if you are patient, you can clean them completely and they are as good as new.

The lines are uniform in color and constant. The pens work well in controlling the flow of ink, and they do not bleed when you are writing with them. If you shake them a lot, ink will splatter everywhere, like a calligraphy pen with an open nib, but everyday wear and tear won't cause the pen to explode (in a purse or backpack), if you want to carry it around.

I've been using Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph pens for over two decades. They are one of the most reliable brands on the market - if you clean them regularly and follow the simple instructions included for maintenance, they will last for years. I replace mine about once every six years. These pens produce a clean, uniform line which is excellent for crosshatching, stipple drawing and pointillism, and great for general sketching. The ink is water soluble, which allows for some nice wash effects when necessary.

By W. Donovan on December 27, 2007
These are the best (really only) pens if you want a precise line. They are great for contour drawings, cross hatching, and I like to write little notes with them. The precision of the line lends an austere gravity to little notes.

You have to draw relatively slowly or they skip, so if you draw with a gesture don't bother. They work a little like a fountain pen, and ink wells up into the tube that you draw from, so if you touch the area just above the drawing tube you are likely to get ink on you hands. I like the closeness with the materials, but you might not. These are for a serious draftsperson and not a hobbiest.

These are my favorite pens on earth.

I found these pens in another location on amazon where they are less expensive:

I've been using Rapidograph-type technical pens to write and draw in my ever-present notebooks for over 40 years. I imagine it helps that I'm left-handed, I naturally write with my pen in a vertical position, and I make notes with mind maps and drawings. This Rapidograph pen is the highest-quality technical pen that I've yet seen and I could never find a more-enjoyable pen to write with over all these years to write and draw with than a technical pen. I've tried...as the manual filling of the ink cartridges is messy, even after doing it hundreds of times. I've personally found that the pre-filled replacement ink cartridges too expensive compared to filling the pens manually.

I have 2 issues with this pen and the pen set. The first is that the ink cartridge reservoir is less than half the size of all the other technical pens that I've previously used. Maybe Rapidograph believes that these technical pens are now only used for short work periods and then are put away. That would help waste less ink when the ink dries up and the pen needs to be cleaned to unblock it. It's not my case though, as I use it all the time...even though they dry up if I don't use them for a week and I have to clean them again. The second issue is that I would have liked to buy a double-pen set with 0 (0.35mm) and 1 (0.5mm) pen sizes at an attractive price rather than this 7-pen set.

I was using a small set of Rapidograph pens for years and then lost them in a move. I tried using Sharpie ultra fine point pens for labeling CDs and got sick of them always drying out. These pens work beautifully on CDs and I've never had any trouble with them clogging. I have a limited income and $100 was an awful lot to spend on a set of pens but I'm very glad that I purchased them. I expect them to last for very many years if I take care of them properly.

I love these pens for detailed art. Easy to use and clean up. It helps to know why one wants these, as they are not for the fluid lines of a traditional metal drawing pen. Terrific for deriving an "etching-like" look.
