I like the pen. Great writer in medium. The pocket clip is strong and helpful
for me since I have a job that requires a good deal of physical activity and
sometimes pens with poorly made clips fall out of my shirt pocket. Not so with
this pen. It's pretty rugged and I like the ergonomic grip. It's not a
decorative, pretty pen. Utilitarian, rugged and typical great German
engineering....it's great to take along in the field.
The only problem I had with the pen was a lengthy time (compared with other
fountain pens) in getting the pen settled in during it's first use. Lots of
skipping, etc. Once it was past this problem, it has been flawless since.
