I bought this pen more...

I bought this pen more than a year ago and really like its weight and balance. Thin pens typically cause fatigue in the forefinger and thumb over prolonged use, but not with this one. But it does have couple of other issues :
1) All needle points are a little scratchy, but this one is a little more scratchy - probably because the needle is a tad bit longer.
2) This needle point tends to gather more paper fibers than other needle points, causing some clogging and ink buildup at the tip. When this happens, a quick wipe of the tip does the trick.

When the original refill ran out, I replaced it with a 0.38 G-Knock refill. It is comparable to the original 0.4mm point, the fit is perfect and the traditional conical tip is stable and smooth. Both the above issues were resolved.

Some other reviewers have asked about refill interchangeability - I can confirm that all Pilot gel refills fit this pen. I have even hacked a Uniball Signo RT refill to fit this pen.

Overall, I like this pen a lot - very elegant and professional looking, yet compact and easy to carry. Do be careful though, when uncapping or recapping the pen - the clearances are really close and any tilt will cause the edge of the cap to scratch the plastic grip on the pen.

I write notes everyday and am very particular with the weight and diameter of my pens. My prior favorite pen was the Cross classic due to the weight, small diameter and build quality. After reading various blogs and seeking advice fromThe Pen Addict blog. I purchased this pen from Jet Pens and was extremely pleased with the Hi-Tec Cavalier.

If you work in a corporate setting, and want something better than the usual cheap plastic BIC pens, look no further. The gel ink dries fast, I haven't noticed any smearing and its super black.Take pride in your writing insrtument.

Furthermore, I recently went into a pen specialty shop to browse around, luckily I was carrying my pen in my shirt pocket and asked them for something compareable and they offered me a few Lamy which were decent, but I much preferred my Cavalier.

This is currently my favorite daily writing pen. It's slightly thinner than a normal sized pen but still has a good weight and heft. The only catch, as a previous reviewer mentioned, is that i MUCH prefer to write with it without the cap at the butt end. Adding the cap adds quite a bit of weight that become uncomfortable when writing for long durations.

I also didn't really care for the default ink cartridge and replaced it with the Ohto 0.7mm Gel cartridge. Works wonderfully.

This pen is amazing! I love the way it feels in my hand-good weight and everything. The fact that they refills are basically a brand new pen is perfect for me. I use it to draw with mainly and it's exactly what I needed.
