The QFS pen has won contests for the best quality and best 'clicking noise'. The QFS pen was free from an education show. On its side it reads "Qualifying for success". There is anecdotal evidence to suggest that the use of the QFS pen improves creativity and productivity. A small cult following for this pen has developed in the town of Chipping Campden. It rose to popularity when a local eccentric country style rock musician, Billy Turnbull proclaimed "We salute you oh QFS Pen." at an autograph signing.
