Upgrade the refill! Cute...
Upgrade the refill! Cute pen, but the ballpoint refill that comes with the pen is atrocious in that it skips and requires all sorts of pressure to lay down a straight, solid line of ink. I agree with Jetpens' recommendation to upgrade the refill to a Sharbo or Pilot D-1. However, the D-1 mini refills do not last long, given their very small size - which can run out while taking copious notes. The Kaweco rollerball is the more economical choice, given its greater versatility in being able to use rollerball, ballpoint or even G-2 refills, while maintaining its excellent portability due to its equally small size.
