The pen build is pretty...
December 25, 2015
The pen build is pretty good overall. Good matte feel, nice weight and balance.
Everything but the clip and the plunger mechanism is 5/5 to me.
The clip feels flimsy. I mostly use a Maxmadco titanium pen, and the clips on
those are known to be indestructible, so maybe the bar is set pretty high for
me. I feel a bit nervous clipping this pen into my side jeans pocket. That said,
it doesn't feel too weak.
The plunger mechanism is a significant let down. I'd say it's the least
satisfying plunger mechanism I've ever used. There isn't a point at which you
feel a strong *click* and know that you can ease up the pressure and use the
pen. It's a bit of a scratchy movement on the way down, and then at some point
you get a faint feeling that the nib is extended past the threshold point, and
then you can let go.
Finally, I am not a big fan of the refill that comes with the pen. It is very
wet and has a fairly thick line. You can use this refill if you have fairly
large handwriting and write fast. I will have to find a good replacement and I'm
not sure what that will be yet. For reference, I am a fan of the fine Moleskine
For less $$ this would be a great pen, but I expected a bit more for the price.
If I find a refill replacement I am happy with that will make a big difference.
