the pen body is really cute in person, not cheap looking, and the colours are really nice. these are the same quality as the normal style fit pen bodies, but if you havent used a uni style fit before then: they are extremely good quality and very easy to assemble. has a suitable price too, same as the regular, when i thought they would be more expensive!

First thoughts: This pen is very lovely in person. This is my first time ever owning a multi-pen. Before ordering this, I was concerned that the lower part of the barrel, where it's completely clear, would really annoy me. You see a good bit of the pen refills inside. When you're writing, this won't make a difference, you won't notice. If you love just looking at your "beautifully designed" stationery from time to time, well, to see all those colors (so much of them) through the lower part of the barrel. . . ehn. . . I can't say that I think it was a good choice for the two companies involved in the creation of this Majolica Majorca pen to have so much open space for you to see the colored refills inside. Well, they also don't allow you to see which colors you have inserted already from the top (where you depress the levers to push out or retract the refills), so, it was one or the other. I feel like they could have done something more, like what the regular Uni style fits do, in terms of having the lower portion of it a solid color, but still allowing that slight see-through window a short way up to see the colors.

About the Construction: Enough of that minor nitpickiness, however. The pen is gorgeous, the colors and sparkliness of it are very nice. It makes me think of a cosmetic item (lipstick mostly) when I look at the label, as opposed to just seeing a "pen" only first.

The mechanism that pushes the refills forward/retracts them is slightly noisy. You can hear the metal coils springing when you press them, and it makes low clicking sounds when they snap into or out of place. This same mechanism, though, requires very little pressure. It's very, very sensitive when pressed. It's very easy to load and unload refills, and the few refills I ordered (2 to start) are very beautiful colors. I've been using solid black, single-color Uniball Signo Micros for the past four years, and I'm a fan of those. This gel ink is the same, and so I expected nothing less in the quality and application of these inks.

I plan on buying more refills, and will more than likely purchase a lavender Uni Style Fit pen body later on as well.
