The design, weight, and size of this pen make it a great everyday carry.
However, it will scratch, so don't get too emotionally attached. BTW, if you're
looking for a blue refill, the Retro 51 Tornado refills (a Schmidt P8127 short)
will work. Does Schmidt make every refill on Mother Earth?
I've used this pen for about 6 months and am not very impressed. Several
different ink cartridges have been tried, but I can't get the pen to write
consistently. It seems very scratchy and skips far too much.
