In my journey to find the perfect pen, I came across this amazing pen. I've
loved pilot for a long time because of their incredible tips and high quality
ink. And so far, this pen meets all of my expectations.
I bought this pen primarily as a pen body since it can house several different
Pilot branded refills, including the awesome G2 gel pens. I've already gone
through the original ink cartridge, a G2 refill and its 0.3 mm and the pen still
feels wonderful in my hand.
I must admit, this pen is flashy. I love watching people turn it in their hands
while trying to see how to use it, which should speak to its quality. It looks a
lot more expensive than it actually is. In fact, several people have though it
to be one of those 100 dollar executive pens. So if you want luxury without the
price tag, you don't have to search anymore.
Nevertheless, I cannot give this pen a five out of five review. Its pretty but
the paint will get damaged. I dropped it once and it now sports a gnarly looking
scar on the side. I do admit, however, that I screwed up that one; but as some
others have mentioned, the cap likes to scratch the pen too. Every single time
you open it and close it, there's a big chance it will get scratched on the
bottom of the barrel, where the cap rests when closed. Of course, the pen does
look okay when not in use, but the scratches feel awkward to the touch.
