This novelty pen is a fun gift for anyone in the medical profession. Syringe pen with red "blood" barrel. Writes in black ink.
This pen writes well in black ink. I have gotten many complements on this pen. The red liquid is clear and does flow smoothly around. However, the red liquid does not fill the syringe like in the picture it only fills to the 5 mL mark when straight up and down. I like fun little things like this as a nurse and student but I don't know if I am going to buy anymore any time soon as I am not willing to pay the shipping for such a small item. Maybe if I buy quite a few things at once but if I need more anytime soon I think I will look at a medical supply store instead!
I really liked these pens. They were better than I expected. I read most of the reviews before I placed my order and decided to order them anyway. I was not sorry. I will be reordering very soon.
Pros: writes well Cons: instead of a clear, red fluid in barrel, it is less than half full with a gory looking, viscous, cloudy red fluid in the barrel. This is not what is pictured. Will only purchase these in person from now on.
Instead of being filled with clear red fluid, the 10 I recieved were half filled with a thick, cloudy fluid. These look disgusting. On the upside, they write well, so I am not going to deal with trying to return them. Buyer beware, item may not be recieved as described. May I suggest purchasing these in person at a scrub supply store.
I ordered 10 of these because they looked so cute! I received them today, and they write well, but... I was expecting something looking more like what was pictured: syringes filled with a clear red fluid. What I received were syringes half filled with a cloudy red fluid. This looks... very realistic... and by very realistic, I mean disgusting. Had I known the fluid was going to be so dehydrated, I wouldn't have ordered a bulk amount of this item. Since they write well, I will still use them. I am not going to deal with trying to return them. Just be forewarned, if you are interested in ordering these, you may not receive exactly what is pictured. you may be better off buying these in person at a scrubs or medical supply store.
Great fun, gave these nurses I work with. They loved them. Black ink and write well.
I love these
The pen is great looks like a real shot,
this is a cute item, especially for gifts!!
As described, I didn't had a problem with the liquid getting out with from any of the 3 I got
I am in nursing school, so I ordered this pen since I was placing an order anyway for another item. It has been the hit of my class. Everyone loves it. I would love to order more, but I refuse to pay more shipping and handling on an item than the item itself cost. I guess when my little pen dies, I will have to find something else to amuse my class with.
Love this and I get a lot of comments from other people. Also, it writes nicely (not clumpy or anything like that).
I bought these to give to fellow co-workers. Just to let them know I was thinking of them during the holidays. They seam to enjoy them and the the pens write well. They even are something a conversation piece at times. I was very glad that I purchased these pens. And would do it agin. Medical staff always have a thing for pens anyway and are seam to enjoy them. So I rate them very highly.
I'm a chronic pain paient and I don't spell very well so forgive me. I first head about this product some time back while in the hospital a Nurse had one, wasn't as neat as this one. She told me about your catlog. As time has gone by I have friends that share the same health issues we send little gifts to each orher This pen with the fluide in it was great and Jim D just had his 4th back operation and is a month out of the hospital he love it. So do I and the Wife like these pen.
These pens look so realistic with the moving red ink they are almost disgusting! I was going to give them for Christmas gifts but decided to save them for April Fool's Day! A great gag gift!
In the past, I have bought this item as a gift to my nursing students and they were on back order. In an effort not to have this happen again, I purchased 20 syringe pens at the same time. When it was time to give them to the students, the red dye had evaporated in over half of them and the pen lost all effect. the pens did write still. Unfortunately some of my students got this poor gift. I do continue to buy this item;however, I do it later and cross my fingers that the red dye (""ink"") will still be in the pen.
