This pen writes well and the ink is quite nice (too bad there isn't a blue ink
However, please be warned that you probably shouldn't buy many extras if you
want to stock up and use them later.
I bought a couple dozen of these pens, in all point/tip sizes last March (2012).
In the past month, I've tried using them and they've all dried out except for
one of the medium/broad point pens.
It's unfortunate that the cap or the body fail to keep the pens properly sealed.
I'd suggest getting replacements every couple of months and not storing them for
more than a few months, at most.
FYI, I did try a few things to "re-activate" the pens after trying to write with
them on various types of paper. I soaked the tips of a couple of pens in 90%
rubbing/isopropyl alcohol and then in some warm water, both for a few hours,
testing the pens every 15 minutes, or so. Nothing helped.
Twenty plus pens worth nothing now...
