Verified Purchase
This is a very cool pen, although the shade of blue shown on the page for the blue version is not accurate. For a better idea of the true shade of blue this pen comes in, look to the photo of all four colors on the main Multi Pen page. The pen itself is actually a deep slate blue, not the lighter silvery blue shown on the item page (and no, my monitor's settings have nothing to do with the washout or overexposure of the photos shown on the specific item page). For my taste, this pen could've also stood to be a bit heavier weight (I'm not always easy on my pens), and somewhat more solidly made, but the body IS solid metal, and the switching mechanism is really the most innovative I've ever come across.

As far as refills go, being an artist I like to have a wide selection of colors available to me. For this pen, you'll be hard-pressed to find many refills that are not what seems to be the standard 0.7mm multipen refill size. The ballpoint refills that fit this pen are, of course, the ones made for it, Hi-Tec-C SLIM refills (and no other Hi-Tec-C refills), any refills made specifically for the Cross Tech 3 multi pen, or any other multi or mini pen refill that measures 2 5/8" long by 1/16" wide/high/across. Monteverde refills that will fit this pen ARE available at colorado pen, and in a GREAT selection of colors (purple, red, pink, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, blue black, black, AND brown) and two tip widths (medium, which is approximately 0.7mm, and broad, which is probably 0.9mm). If you're looking for fine point refills, Levenger also offers multi pen refills (which they've since renamed "mini pen refills") that will fit this pen and other multi pens. You're stuck with black, red, or blue ink with them, but they do at least offer medium AND fine point refills that will work beautifully with this pen.

If you're looking for a great, all around go-to pen for both drawing and writing, you really can't beat the cool factor of this one with the weighted switch mechanism, and the low price!So whaddaya waiting for?! ; )

Fyi, the pen's length...
Verified Purchase
Fyi, the pen's length is 5 1/8". Most pens are at least 5 1/2". The pictures do not show very well but this pen is labeled as "Mini" right under the clip. I was disappointed as I thought I located the Platinum multi pen I lost a few years ago. I shall keep searching...
