I had a chance to handle...
I had a chance to handle this pen in person, and I'd like to say that this is a very well built pen. The cap posts smoothly, and it feels substantial. I certainly don't believe that the weight to cost can be applied to any pen, as I have some custom ebonite pens, and they are light, but certainly not cheap, and I also have cheap no name pens, that have a metal barrel that is heavy. This pen, didn't feel too light, especially for its size. It's a bit smaller than what I'm used to, but it fits my large hands just right. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this pen for myself, and neither should you. The line is just exactly what I expect from Pilot, not too wet, not too dry, but wet enough for its fine nibs to glide effortlessly over the paper.

Got my new Pilot pen...
Verified Purchase
Got my new Pilot pen and tried it out. The cap posts well and the nib lays out a nice fine line, but it's too light for my taste. If you like light pens, then you might want to try this one out. But if you don't, you might want to think twice.

I know the pen's acrylic but was still expecting something heavier. If you're like me and compare weight to cost, then the pen is overpriced. Not to say it's poorly made - it writes very well - it just "feels" like it's about $20 overpriced. The cost to weight ratio doesn't really give a fair assessment on the pen's performance. But if you're like me and use that formula, then you'll think that you paid too much for this pen.

AMAZING! I am in love...
Verified Purchase
AMAZING! I am in love with this pen. I ordered this pen along with Pilot iroshizuki ink in yama-budo. It writes smoothly and consitently. I have smaller hands and this pen fits perfectly. It has a good weight to it, not too much, not too slight. Really, I couldn't have chosen a more perfect fountain pen for me. I love the color of this pen paired with the color of my ink, a lot! I can't tell you how nervous I was about investing so much money in one pen, but I am completely satisfied!
