First off I must say that I did not write with this pen - I returned it. I
bought this pen because of the unique shape and simple lines, replaceable nib
and all metal construction. It does have all of these features, but I was also
expecting extremely high quality fit, finish and design at this price point.
The fit and finish were fine, but design elements like the small o-ring between
the grip section and the body were not executed well. I also expected a
secondary mechanism inside the cap that would reduce the captured air volume
that is trying to dry out the pen, my cheap Pilot Kakuno's have this and so does
the cheaper Platinum Preppy, but this pen just has a plain empty cap. Lastly,
even though I read the size in JetPens excellent description of the the pen, I
just expected it to be larger, it is a small pen - about the size of a wooden
pencil that has been sharpened to the point that I might consider discarding it.
