I purchased this pen...
I purchased this pen in July of 2012 and have used it as an every day pen since. This is the first fountain pen I have ever purchased.
I loved the packaging. I am not sure that it's packaged the same way anymore. Generally the pen writes very well
My only complaint is that the finish, after much use, is wearing off and showing the copper metal color of the body. While it doesn't effect the writing of the pen, it makes it look very cheap and/or used. This is the reason for my 4 star review.
I also purchased a fine nib for this pen. If you're ordering for daily writing, I suggest the medium nib. I barely use the fine nib.
Another suggestion I have is that you should always, ALWAYS, leave the pen retracted when not in use! Even if you're just shuffling some papers to continue writing. The nib will bend easily.
