Customizable Multi Pens: Part 3 – Zebra Sharbo X

JetPens presents, Customizable Multi Pens,
Part Three: The Zebra Sharbo X. While normal multi pens are limited to a predetermined
set of conventional ink colors, customizable multi pens offer a wide range
of body and refill components to choose from, allowing you to create your own perfect multi
pen from the ground up. In parts one and two, we covered the Uni Style
Fit and the Hi-Tec-C Coleto. Now, let’s look at one of our premium customizable
multi pens the Zebra Sharbo X. There are several tiers of Sharbo X body components, but they all share the same basic features. Each features a sleek, attractive design and a high-quality continuous twist mechanism that lets you cycle in either direction through two pen components
and one mechanical pencil component. The word “Sharbo” is actually a combination of the words “sharp” which means mechanical pencil in Japanese, and “ballpoint.” The standard Sharbo X lines include the slim
LT3 and the full-size ST3, both of which feature solid brass construction. The CB8 Carbon Fiber model features a striking combination of aluminum and carbon fiber body materials. Finally, the TS10 Premium model features a
brass body finished with a stunning high-luminance metallic paint and shiny, rhodium-plated accents. It is also the largest Sharbo X pen body and
can hold a third pen component for a total of four refill components, including the mechanical
pencil. Refill components for the Sharbo X include
gel, ballpoint, and emulsion ink refills, as well as mechanical pencil and stylus components. Gel ink refills are available in a variety
of colors in both 0.4 and 0.5 millimeter tip sizes. The Sharbo X refills are small, so they don’t
hold as much ink as other refills do. Gel ink refills generally go through ink much
faster than ballpoints, and the Sharbo gel refills can run out after
a few pages of solid writing. The Sharbo X features a variety of colorful
ballpoint inks in 0.7 and 1 millimeter tip sizes. There is also a selection of emulsion ink
ballpoint refills, which use a specially formulated ink that
combines the best features of gel and conventional ballpoint inks for a smoother and more consistent
writing experience. Emulsion ink refills are available in 0.5
and 0.7 millimeter tip sizes. Mechanical pencil components are available
in 0.3, 0.5, and 0.7 millimeter lead sizes. Like the Hi-Tec-C Coleto, the Sharbo X also
features a resistive stylus component, designed for use with pressure sensitive touch screens. To assemble the pen, grip it below the twist cap and unscrew the barrel. Inside, you’ll see mounting slots for one mechanical pencil component and two other refill components. Insert the refills into the mounting slots… Then screw the pen back together. To use the pen, simply twist until the refill of your choice is extended. The tips of the refills are color coded to
help you remember which refills are in which slots. To retract the refill, twist the pen until
it is halfway between two slots. When the mechanical pencil component is in use, you can extend the lead by pushing down on the top of the pen. Unscrewing the cap at the top of the pen reveals a small, refillable eraser. The top of the cap has a grippy, rubber texture and can be used to help turn stubborn pages. To refill the lead in the mechanical pencil,
unscrew the pen barrel to expose the refill components. Next, pull off the tip of the pencil component, this can take a strong pull. Add a few leads to the storage tube. The tube can comfortably hold three or four leads in addition to the one currently in use. Once the leads have been added, replace the tip and reassemble the pen. With its range of high-quality refill and body components, it’s no surprize that the Sharbo X is one of the most popular customizable multi pens around. Design your perfect Zebra Sharbo X at If you haven’t already, be sure to check out parts one and two of our customizable multi pen overview, where we cover the Uni Style Fit and the Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto.

    I'm glad you fully address the cons of these products – definitely speaks to your trustworthiness as a company.

  2. Josh Nguyen June 10, 2015 at 6:03 pm

    Hey JetPens, can I ask you what is the highest maximum number of lead refills in the mechanical pencils that the three multi pens can hold?

  3. Kidd October 21, 2015 at 10:32 am

    Hi JetPens, is the clip for the Sharbo X ST3 All-Black is made of steel? or is it plastic? thanks!

  4. Phanic! at the Disco October 25, 2015 at 9:35 pm

    Out of all the mulitpen's refills which one lasts the longest/has the most ink?

  5. ♠Ripley♠ November 16, 2015 at 12:58 am

    Ohh the Sharbo X TS10.. That ones my favorite.

  6. Limietaru November 29, 2015 at 4:03 pm

    Thanks for such a wonderful series! I did have a question – can any refills be used in different bodies? For example, I'm a huge Hi-Tec C/Needlepoint fan, but the Sharbo bodies are much more my style. Do you think it is possible to pull out the color tab on the Hi-Tec C Coleto refills and put them in a different pen?

    Hey Jet Pens! Will you be restocking more of the colorful D-1 refills from Zebra (or anyone)?
    I particularly like the sepia one and my daughter the purple you once offered. So.. any chance we can refill our CL-5 and ST-3 pens with something besides black and red?

  8. BlastFromYesterday April 4, 2016 at 11:59 pm

    When you buy the barrel from the website, are there already pens/pencil lead in it, or must those be bought separately?

    I have this pen in 'champagn gold' and it's lovely. The mechanism is so smooth and it feels really high quality.

  10. hukes July 29, 2016 at 4:13 am

    I wish I wouldn't mind the slanted points of multifunction pens.

  11. Chris Lee July 30, 2016 at 3:27 am

    I am impressed with the outstanding presentation.

  12. Julian Heske October 18, 2016 at 3:01 am

    How well does the eraser practically work though?

  13. Abbie Cervantes December 10, 2016 at 10:49 pm

    Hey Jetpens, I know this is unrelated to this video, but which one is cooler and more easy to use?
    A twist multimpen or a pendulum multi pen for school?

  19. Raquel Wood March 27, 2017 at 1:17 am

    as an artist, something like this is VERY nice. but i would love to see one that holds more than one mechanical pencil component so i could have three different lead sizes in one pencil. still, this is incredibly nice and i can't wait to get money to buy one

  20. Tori Topaz April 21, 2017 at 11:14 pm

  24. stargolden warrior April 4, 2018 at 4:51 am

    Can you put all 3 pencil sizes in one of the pens?

  25. chandran natesan April 25, 2018 at 1:53 pm

    Does the emulsion ink feel like a ballpoint or a gel pen jetpens

  26. Luke Shepherd November 6, 2019 at 2:45 pm
