Picked this pen up on a whim to get free shipping, turns out it's better than a V5, mainly for two reasons. One, it is way cheap for what you get, and, two, the point is finer than a V5. It's a perfect addition to a pen lovers collection.

This pen looks and feels like a normal, capped V5, so the experience is nearly the same, grip-wise.

So far, this pen shows no signs of slowing down. I've been writing (nearly) continuously with it the past few days and it shows zero sign of ink usage.

This pen gives my V5 a run for it's money. Partly because it's cheaper, has a finer point, and lasts a lot longer. The black is also a rich, deep shade that I love. I don't like blacks that look too gray. It does get finnicky on certain papers, but that should be expected as you get to tips below 0.5mm (at least with my writing).

I am thrilled that I managed to grab mine before it sold out! I know it will be back, but I feel like I've won some prize because of it. This is the best black liquid pen that I have ever written with - given my inexperience, that may not be saying much, but all the same I am very picky with liquid ink pens. This is a very reasonable price, and all I must say is that I wish I had bought more.

Good pen, though I don't think 0.4 is thin enough, as the inks sort of expands across the page, as with any rollerball. I think not having a grip is good, and gives the pen a cleaner look. The ink is a rich black, and therefore makes the pen very good for the cheap price.

I absolutely love this pen! It produces a fairly thin and very dark line and it writes smoothly. As the other reviews state, it is comparable to the V5 pen and like the V5, it feathers slightly before drying but unless you are using extremely porous paper it isn't very noticeable. As with most liquid ink pens, it does take a bit to dry and the slower you write, the thicker the line and the more it feathers. It is priced extremely well for the quality, so well I have bought another batch! I wish they sold these in packs of 12 or 24! I would recommend to anyone that likes a thin line and barely any pressure to write with.

I liked this pen, liked the fine point. The cap, though, would not fit on the end of the pen, so the pen was too short and difficult for my hand to write with.

Great pen. Too bad they don’t make this one anymore, or at least it’s no longer in stock.
I tend to write with 0.5mm points, but sometimes I like 0.3mm for margins and finer writing. 0.4mm is a great compromise for liquid pens, and is somewhat rare at the same time.

I'm using this a year later and it's still got quite a bit of ink. It's very nice and thin, thinner than the Stabilo Point 88 Fineliner 0.4mm, but I think my particular one already didn't have a very sharp tip. My only gripe with this is that the one I received didn't hold its cap very well, so it would fall off if you moved it (like even putting it in a pencil box). I'm fine with that, I just have to remember to securely hold it together.

It’s a great pen, but a bit scratchy. The perfect point between 0.3 and 0.5 (seeing as it’s right in the middle--duh). Surprisingly, pens and pencils in 0.4 are a bit hard to find these days, but this did the job just perfectly.

I tend to write with 0.5 mostly, but sometimes, depending on the pen or lead, it comes out too thick. The points and lead for 0.3 are too brittle and scratchy, and the 0.4 is better for me. I still prefer 0.5 overall, but it’s nice to have 0.4 as an alternative depending on the paper.
