Purchased one from JetPens...
January 26, 2015
Purchased one from JetPens a few months ago and immediately started using it. I
owned one in black received as a gift, used it for a couple years, enjoyed it
until one day it mysteriously disappeared; so, because of that earlier
experience I bought a new one and selected the silver finish. Same experience
initially. Then, while still on the first cartridge last week the retraction
mechanism stopped working. The pens retraction mechanism failed not the ink
cartridge. This particular example did not deliver for it's price or it's
Rotring reputation or did it live up to the favorable experience I had with the
previous example. Still, it was comfortable, functioned well (before failing)
and I used it often for several months. It should have been more durable. That's
my reason for awarding two stars.
