Hands up if you’re also a little (lot) stationery obsessed? Then you will love this Pilot Pen Australia MR3 Retro Pop Collection review because these pens are just delightful.
When was the last time you used a fountain pen? I’ll be honest, for me, it was about 25 years ago when I was at school – my goodness!
I remember how using it felt so special, refilling the ink and the way the pen glided on the paper. It even made my hand-writing seem more passably neat and just felt good to hold a fountain pen.
Of course, back in those days, the design of fountain pens was pretty plain – even the expensive ones. These days, many of us want our pens to be as pretty as our notebooks.

A survey of more than 1400 Australian women conducted by Pilot Pen Australia revealed that 90% said that pens make a smart fashion statement and that 55% have a favourite pen they like to keep in their handbag. I’m the same!
“Pens, just like mobile phone cases, purses and handbags make a stylish statement and can add more personality to your appearance,” says fountain pen expert and ambassador for Pilot Pen Australia, Sophia Le.

My Review and Opinion
Using a fountain pen has been just as special as I remember. These gorgeous, bright and bold designs give a pop of colour to my desk and they’re so vibrant.
The Aqua pen is my favourite – no surprises there!
I love how this pen feels in my hand – it’s almost ergonomically shaped to sit well and feel comfortable.
One thing I do remember from my school days is how my fountain pen would sometimes drag across the page – this doesn’t happen with the Pilot Pen MR3.
I’ve also experienced no ink splattering – something else that would annoy me as a child!
Inserting the ink cartridge is easy – simply unscrew the bottom of the pen, remove the refillable ink cartridge and pop in the cartridge that’s included in the pack. After a little shake the ink started to flow.
I think these pens are beautiful and are going to make the most special gift ideas!
