Great pen, but not very...
Great pen, but not very durable. The pen is actually two plastic parts that are
basically snapped together, but unfortunately the pen is pretty weak where they
meet. I take care of my supplies, but the pen ended up cracking in spots.
Eventually, a big chunk just fell right out. I've only had it for about 2
If it were a little more solid, it would be an excellent pen. The spring
mechanisms were flawless and the grip is subtle, but helpful. Putting in new
inks is a snap, but the top has always stayed securely. I've never had any issue
with pens hitting one another.
The pen itself is a bit thicker than normal pens, so if this is problematic, it
would be wiser to choose a 4-ink component.
Despite the cracking, Coleto pens are still my absolute favorite pen. I strongly
suggest spending a little more for a more durable body. Unfortunately, as this
is the only 5 color pen component at the moment, this means using 2 pens if you
want/need 5 colors.
I strongly recommend the pen style, but not this particular body.
