The Boshi Gel Ink pens are as described on the product description page. These arrived nicely boxed containing 12 gel pens. These have black gel ink and write incredibly smooth. Being left handed has always posed a problem with smearing the ink after writing. This gel ink dries fast with minimal smudging from my left hand. I am really impressed with these pens. Each one has a tight fitting lid with a pocket clip for easy storage access. I received these gel pens for free in exchange for my review.
