When I first saw pictures...
When I first saw pictures of this pen, I was not overly enthused with the plastic look of it but I did like the idea of the pen being see-through, so I ordered it. And when I did receive the pen, I was pleasantly surprised by its looks, which appeared to be quite solid and eye catching. There are some nice classical curves with gives the pen a somewhat refined look. As for the ink inverter sitting inside of it, well, it’s quite cool. As for the twist cap, it is made of plastic but it does not feel like it’s going to strip away anytime soon.
Nevertheless, it is the iridium point on this pen that makes it what it is. With a constant, unperturbed flow of ink, it is any writers dream to write with this pen.

I didn't like this pen...
I didn't like this pen very much. Every single part, the nib, the grip, the plastic body, the converter and cap just felt and looked much cheapter than Lamy Safari demonstrator which costed me nearly half as much. It didn't write smooth and was skipping all over the plan. Maybe I got a bad batch because people generally rate this pen as a good, smooth writer that is also aesthetically pleasing. I tried flushing, different cartriges and converters and just couldn't get this to write properly. :(

Got this as a demonstrator...
Got this as a demonstrator to fill with the Diamine Orange ink. It looks really good, especially when the orange ink fills the feed to give it an orange color. One thing that's not so great is that when left for a few days, it's really hard to get it started again. Otherwise a well-built pen.
