I like the feel, style,...

I like the feel, style, and function of these pens, and use them daily.
Unfortunately, they have one design flaw; The plastic "bump" where the wire clip
anchors itself to the pen body has broken in the same place on 3 different pens.
It appears that the two small insert holes are a weak point which eventually
fracture/break from repetitive use. I don't clip these pens to anything other
than my shirt pocket, but apparently, even this slight stress is too much for
this pen to handle. Each pen has lasted about 4-5 months before the plastic
snaps. I have 3 broken, clipless Tombows rolling around in my desk drawer now
and one "Clip attached" Tombow Airpress left in my arsenal. Regrettably I won't
be buying anymore unless the flaw is corrected or the price is lowered.
