Impressed. I got this pen a few months back because it looks cool and it's inexpensive. I didn't expect much, but wanted something I'd be less sorry to lose than my Parker, Pelikan, or Montblanc, none of which travel well without leaking anyhow.
The pen has a pleasant heft without being too heavy - feels solid. The nib was a bit scratchy at first, but still better than expected from an inexpensive fine nib pen. The ink flow is reliable, using Pilot Namiki cartridges - blue/black is my preference and it's hard to say whether the overall smoothness of the experience improved when I ran out of the black cartridge it came with, or as a result of it having been broken in to my handwriting, but it's no longer scratchy.
As I did get this to be transportable I'll stick to cartridges with this one, but I am looking forward to getting one in another design to put in a converter and try some diamine inks in. And as to the portability - it beats my pricy pens for sure. So far there's been no leaking at all, and I've not been particularly careful.

This one is only my second pen so while I am not a very experienced fountain pen user I can say that I have really enjoyed and been pleasantly surprised by how nicely the pen writes.

Like many others, this is my first fountain pen so I'm not nearly qualified as others to review what is logistically wrong with it. However, I enjoy the silver body as well as the snake pattern very much. I would definitely recommend to anyone that wants to start practicing with fountain pens. I only wish I started using them sooner like in college when I had pages and pages of notes to write.
