Bought this for my boyfriend...
Bought this for my boyfriend on his 30th birthday. I thought it was appropriate
to buy him an "Ageless Future". Get it?! :p Anyways, he's a writer, and always
carries a pen in his front pant pocket. This is great because it isn't so
pointy, and won't stab him in the leg so much when he sits down. Also, he's a
lefty, and he gives it the lefty stamp of approval. The weight is heavy and
balanced. The first day he used it, he wrote fourteen pages in one sitting
instead of the usual four or five pages.
The only downside to this pen, is that even though it's non-stabby, it really
isn't great for carrying around. It gets lint trapped inside the barrel. He
needs to clear the barrel out from time to time so that it will operate
appropriately. Also, the pretty silver finish dents and scratches really easily.
As soon as he received the pen, he dropped it on my dog's crate, and it showed a
very noticeable dent. He still loves the pen and uses it every day, but if you
plan on using it on the go, consider the Ageless Present (or Timeline Present)
model instead. I have that one, carry it with me everywhere, and the
plastic/resin body is really durable.
As or the ink, the included blue .7mm ink is bold and smooth. Love it! I'm a
teacher and am thinking of getting an entirely new body, just so I can buy the
1mm red ink. :) I just wish I liked the color choices a bit more (champagne
gold, dark teal, espresso brown, and burgundy would be great!)
