I love this pen! It writes well, puts down a fairly fine line - not as fine as
say, my Sailor, but it is a fraction of the price. It's design is very clever,
compact is an understatement! It also seems to travel well. The body is metal,
not plastic, and the finish and quality seem high. I'm not sure how the
anodized? finish will stand up to long term use, but for now it's a very
attractive and functional little object.

This is a fine little pen! And when I say "little," I mean LITTLE. It's super
tiny, but quite comfortable to write with when posted, at least for my smallish
hands. The cap snaps securely onto the pen, and holds well when posted, also, so
you don't need to worry about it flying off.
The only thing keeping this pen from getting full stars was that I had to
carefully adjust how the feed and nib lined up before I started writing. Didn't
take long, but I was worried I would break it, as this is my first foray into
the fountain pen world.
It's a pity it won't take a converter (truly, even a mini-converter would be too
long), but for now I'm liking the J. Herbin Perle Noire cartridge I have loaded

I wanted a mini fountain pen, and this certainly fits the description. Capped,
it's the same length as my Fisher Bullet Space Pen, and it's not much thicker.
Posted, it's plenty long enough to write with, due to the extra long cap,
although it feels a little thin. For now, I'll carry it in a shirt pocket, but
could probably carry it in a pants pocket like the Fisher.
Writing quality was very poor at first, with little ink flow. After flushing it
out, adjusting nib and feed, and finally spreading the tines slightly, it now
writes well. So far I'm using a Monteverde red cartridge, which isn't the
greatest ink in any case. I have other colors, and a cartridge can be refilled,
using a syringe, with any ink you want. This pen isn't suitable for eyedropper
conversion, and there's no converter I know of that would work.
After all the fiddling with nib and feed I had to do, this could have been three
stars instead of four. The end result is an excellent little pen, with no
defects in materials, and if you're lucky, you'll get one that works right away.
On the other hand, you might have to tune it a bit.

I love this little pen! It has a very smooth writing line, and when you post the
cap, it's comfortable in the hand. I generally prefer broad nibs, but this one
writes really nicely.

I bought this pen last week and I cannot make it to write properly. The ink
doesn't have a nice and continuous flow to the nib. I wish I could have my money
