Looking for a great pen? You don’t have to pay a lot of money for a sturdy, well-designed pen that looks as good as it functions; one that works as hard as you do. Consider the Steel line from Zebra Pen, a collection of remarkable writing instruments that are a significant upgrade from everyday plastic pens, and they are surprisingly affordable.

These are popular pens, and for many reasons. First and foremost, the barrels are made of stainless steel—sleek, smooth, strong steel. Add in features like a comfortable grip, smooth flowing ink and easy refills, and we are talking about a special collection of pens. Whether it’s the best-selling F-301 that manages to be both lightweight and durable, or the impressive F-701, as precise as the best tool on the workbench, there is a Steel pen or pencil that is right for you. All very reasonably priced.

Like a maker of fine automobiles, the Steel Collection is numbered. Choose from the everyday 3-Series, high quality 4 Series or top-of-the line 7 series. An array of different ink colors, grips and barrel designs let you and make it your own. Here is a detailed guide to the Zebra Pen Steel Collection.
