    I cannot leave a review that expresses how much I adore your f-series pens. I have never loved another pen more… BUT the Sarasa ones come in so many more colors!!! Will the refills fit into an f-series?

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Hannah, the Sarasa refills are not compatible with our F-series ballpoint pens. If you’re looking for a Steel gel pen, I suggest trying our G-301 retractable gel pen. The same pen body you love of the f-301, with the bold, crisp lines of a gel pen.

    I’ve been using the 0.7 in red and blue for over 6 years through school and my job. I can no longer find them anywhere in Spokane WA. Have they been discontinued or is distribution causing this problem? I really need them.

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Steve, we have not discontinued our Sarasa RDI gel pens and they are available to purchase on our website here. If you are interested in purchasing them in store, check out our Where To Buy page at the bottom of our site. Thanks!

    I do not have a review because I cannot purchase one of your pens. I want a SARASA pen in green ink with a .05 tip. Does anyone sell these ? Where are they ?

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Jerry, currently the Sarasa is only available in 0.5mm point size in Black, Blue, and Red. Thank you for your interest! We will pass it along to our product development team.

    Awful pens. Unless you keep them upright 24/7 they dry out too fast. I’m a student so I usually keep my pens in my backpack and they always stop writing mid-sentence because the ink dries on the tip. So disappointing that I wasted precious dollars on this crap.

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Anna. Sorry to hear that! Please fill out the contact form at http://staging.zebrapen.com/contact-us/ and a customer service representative will be in touch with you shortly. Thank you.

    Damn I’m in love with the Sarasa Series. Using it since forever. Its been almost 6 years when I bought my first one. And something is just so special about it. Never loved writing so much. <3

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Thanks for being a fan! We like the Sarasa too.

    As others have said – some of the pens run out of ink VERY FAST. Have also had some that have “bled” all over the bottom of the container that they r in. However they still continue to b my favorite pen. Where else except KMart can u purchase them- KMart is not handy and there r few KMarts left and they don’t always have them in stock – wasted trip!!!

    I am immediately impressed with the Zebra SARASA Gel Pen! I stumbled upon one of these while walking to the library and the exterior just caught my eye. At first I was assuming it was some kind of Brown, or maybe some kind of Red, or some kind of Red/Brown hybrid…like Mahogany(really!, this one was on the tip of my tongue). And so, I decided to search, and Eureka!, I think I’m a fan.

    I want to be able to buy the 0.7 blue pens that I have been buying for years – at Staples. Not thin. Not wide. Just as the 0.7 pens were.

    Linda Grant

    For years, I have used the 0.7 pen in blue, and, fewer, in red. I used the blue every day and was loyal to the brand. I, recently, bought a ‘package’ of new blue pens (0.7) knowing that I would continue to enjoy them. If I knew what these new pens were like I would not have bought them. These pens write thick/wide – not what I want – not what I need. I know the 0.5 writes thin … I’m not looking for thin. That’s good for accounting – fine detail. Should you make 0.7 pens as they were – I’d appreciate knowing. Or, if there is some old stock – in good shape – I would be interested to know.

  12. Rated 3 out of 5


    My three star rating is due to the fact that the pens in every colour except the black keep jamming up. They work beautifully for a few lines but then, despite the ink being fresh and full, it fades out and won’t write anymore! What can I do to get them going again or avoid this problem? I LOVE these pens and really want to be able to use all the colours but find that aside from the black and sometimes the red or pink they have all had this problem. Pink, green, blue, port, purple etc. It is heartbreaking that I have spent so much money and had to toss out pens because they won’t work consistently and I need a pen that works so my work notes are consistent.

    LOVE the SARASA gel pens. Usually like a bold line but your 0.7 pen fills the bill nicely. My FAV pen BUT the only place I can find them is at Kmart. Where else are they available?????

    Leaked everywhere.
    I got this Sarasa 0.7mm as a single pen in Violet. Just started using about a week ago. Left it on my office desk upright for 36 hours in a ceramic mug with a few other pens and highlighters and it is full of purple ink. Was dripping ink out the end, when I picked it up, and got a large spot on my clothes. Not a fun way to start a busy work day. (It was not left clicked out, it was retracted).

    Why doesn’t staples sell the pens anymore?

    We use SARASA 0.7 pens in our office and really like it. Which refill can we use to reduce my impact on the environment?

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Mylene. We’re glad you like our Sarasa gel pens. The Sarasa gel pens fit the JF Refill.

    I like SARASA pens, but have not been able to find my favorite color “PORT”, which used to be available at Staples Office Supply. Is the “PORT” color still manufactured?

    Very smooth writing pen at a great price. Now if only the same technology could make its way to the G301 Refills(Hint! Hint!)

    Great pens. I typically use the Sarasa roller ball pens. I tend to use these pens for art and inking drawings. I have tested dozens of pens and inking. Even custom combinations of inks, nibs, cartridges. Nothing beats Sarasa.

    The black is a very… super black. Nothing but India Ink even comes close. Flow is outstanding and controllable. With a 0.7 mm, I can typically achieve line widths of 0.3 or less. Despite the ink being low viscosity, I do not have issues with bleed. I can usually produce very fine sharp lines and no bleed through even with the lightest of paper. I do however have problems with smudging if I am not careful. I do tend to run the pens dry fairly quickly as well. But I tend to use them for shading and use them for lots of line work.

    I’m excited to test the Sarasa Porous Pens.

    Also, I have a request if this is a forum for such a thing. I also use brush pens, such as and particularly, Pentel FP5M and FRH. Though I tend to use my own ink (Speedball Super Black India Ink). The brushes are not too bad. Just and idea maybe.

    Keep up the great work!

    Excellent pen. Very smooth. Ink begins flowing immediately without drag. Only wish that the blue ink was lighter and more vibrant. The blue is dark like some other gel pens and very close to black. I review and mark up documents and would like a blue ink that easily stands out compared to black print and even other blue pens.

    Great pen. Smooth writing, good ink penetration into the paper. Excellent choice of colors. Two problems though – 1. the refills are not available in all colors. 2. the pens run out of ink too fast. Perhaps a bigger ink reservoir? These are my favorite gel pens.
