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!)

I purchased the same...
I purchased the same pen in Japan as "Timeline" brand and lost in Japan.
I'm glad to purchase again in US!
This pen is well designed for weight balance to use longer and the diameter is best for me.

really a fantastic writing...
really a fantastic writing experience. Nicely weighted pen, love the quality of the ink. Only complaint is that the body of the pen scratches extremely easily. No doubt this is why it comes with a highly engineered protective case.
Still worth it though due to the perfect feel in the hand.
