The primary thing to remember about this pen is that it's pretty and it's cheap. So anything else (good writing quality, etc.) is sort of a bonus. To that end, I haven't really had problems with mine skipping a lot; good ink makes a difference, also the tines needed to be spread just a bit. What I do take issue with, however, is how after about three weeks of use, the gold band around the middle has been tarnished. You might think a pen manufacturer would expect that area to be frequently touched... It's an ugly gray now, and though I'm still attached to my pen, I only wish that it had been better made. Could that be a problem with my pen individually? Other reviewers should give feedback.

I own this pen in silver and have come to love it. What a great pen for the price! I was initially surprised by the weight because it's rather light, but now like that. It writes smoothly, no issues with skips. The design is very attractive, and it gets a lot of compliments -- ironically, more than my other more expensive FPS ever have. Given another review that mentions wear to the gold plate, I also want to mention that the gold bands on mine show no wear. After three months of regular use, it still looks like new.

Really nice pen with a shiny body. Nib is abit rough at start and feed has problems at start but after its washed the feed works perfectly. I would recomand anyone that's thinking of buying this pen should buy it without a doubt. Design and nib are nicely made.

If you want shiny, the F-Lapa has it in spades.

I was initially a bit skeptical about the quality of this pen after reading a few negative reviews on Ohto's Fine series, which seems to have much the same mechanism and construction. For the price, though, the F-Lapa left me pleasantly surprised.

It's not spectacular, but it's by no means bad - Just an average, performs-as-advertised elegant pen for a fantastic price. You could certainly do a lot worse for yourself with a 15 dollar spending budget. The nib may be cheap, and it may be "fake" gold (it's just plated) but at least it writes nicely and smoothly. It's actually about as fine as my Sheaffer fine nibs. There are no skipping or starting problems to speak of, and the pen taking standard International Short cartridges is a plus. There are no seam lines on the plasticwork, the shiny chrome finish is flawless, and all the parts fit together nicely. My only real complaint is the somewhat tacky black lettering around the base of the cap, which can't be removed without damaging the finish of the pen (apparently it's silkscreened on).

For a lousy fifteen dollars you should be buying a five-and-ten special plastic bodied knockoff brand pen, but instead you can get the thoroughly capable and undoubtedly stylish F-Lapa.

This pen felt slightly hastily made. It writes thicker than I would like for a fine nib. It writes thicker. It does have the nice feature of fitting a spare ink cartridge in the top barrel. Didn't like using this regularly. Felt a little awkward due to the slickness and weight distribution. The ink flow also bothered me considerably. Probably wouldn't buy again.
