Perfect pen for beginners, feather light and thin that fits perfectly on my small hands.
The flow is great and not scratchy, writes in super thin line.
The ink is really dark black (compared to Sailor/MontBlanc) and it's perfect for asian language writing.
Even though it's extra fine nib, it writes English pretty good.
If you're looking for inexpensive, everyday pen, I highly recommend it.
Not for signature signing, though.

I *LOVE* this pen. It write so smoothly, has a super fine nib and is a joy to write with. It's great for tiny number work and is well-weighted considering it's materials.

I temporarily lost this pen for about a month and I thought it would be dried up upon first use but no! it wrote just as smoothly as when I first got it.

I highly recommend this pen!

Looks: FAvORITE. Compared to all the shorter, stouter Lamys and Parkers, the long pointed end is wonderful. At first the peach cap was a little off putting, but it's easy to see. I'm very nitpicky, and I don't like the space between the cap and the gold band when the pen is capped. Overall design is sleek and elegant.
Quality: The pen is very sturdy for the material. The ink is very smooth and writes well for a normal pen, especially considering the nib is EF.
very happy with this pen

This pen is an excellent writing instrument at a decent price. Very well balanced. Not fat or bulky, not too skiny. The Gold colored tip gives it just the right professional look. Others at my job were very impressed and not they want one.
