Does not suprise me one...
Does not suprise me one bit that this pen sold out immediately. I was lucky to
get mine. . .figured it would sell out. What a beauty it is! Too much money? Nope.
Worth every penny. I have an extensive pen collection from high end fountain
pens to 99 cent ball point pens but I have never encountered anything like
the CW7T Pen Type-A. To say that it is exceptionally well made doesn't do it
justice. I am not being corny when I say you can actually feel the love that
went into the making of this pen, both from the inventors and the people who
crafted it. It is a pure delight to hold. The case is wonderful. It is fun to
play with! And writes beautifully. In short: perfect. I am totally in love with

The good : this pen is...
The good : this pen is definitely special. The craftmanship is exceptional, is very heavy and it makes for a fine toy - for example, you can spin the "cap" and the thin air layer acts as lubricant, can make a "pop" sound with it, or you can even use it as a weapon in more than one way !
The bad : the pen is so heavy, so it is fairly easy to damage the fine point. Then, being perfectly cylindrical it rolls easily - this can be corrected by adding a small bump at the top of the cylinder. Finally, the low air pressure in the container might mess up the gel ink continuity, meaning that there's an impression of running out of ink after you start writing.
Overall, the good parts definitely compensate the bad ones, and the pen should be used as intended - meaning as a toy that writes rather than a pen. A line to cw&T : make it of gold ( spend 10k) and sell it for 100k :)

I recieved this pen as a gift from my daughter, it is the best! As a designer from the old school I still like to use ink and paper for my craft and this is perfect. My lines are smooth and the designs look great. Everything is uniform. Thanx for the creation of this fabulous pen.

I received my pen as...
I received my pen as part of the Kickstarter campaign as well. I was one of the last to receive mine, but it was well worth the year wait. The most unique thing about this pen is definitely the pop sound it makes when you pull it from the sleeve. This is due to the amazing tolerances that they manufacture these pens to. Writing with it gets a little tiring after long periods though, the barrel has a bit more thickness to it than I'm used to and no grip, so my fingers tend to get a little tired of holding it. My normal writing pens are hi-tec cavaliers and rotring 600's for comparison.
All in all it's a lovely pen and eye catching.

While I have a couple...
While I have a couple more expensive writing instruments, this pen is the prize of my collection. I guess I end up appreciating a work horse more than a race horse. And that's what this pen is, a beautiful writing instrument that is rugged and offers a range of pen tip sizes via the Hi-Tec C cartridge. I usually like the .25mm for all of the creative work that I do, but I carry a .4mm in my pen case in the event I'll be taking a lot of notes. The ruler pen case is also the perfect accompaniment, another tool that comes in handy almost every day.
