I was really surprised the first time that I wrote with this pen. The line is
really thick (maybe a little too thick for grading papers), but the color is
dark enough, and the glitter shows up very clearly. On the whole, it's pretty
comfortable to write with. It almost feels like writing with a crayon in some
ways. You can very clearly feel the paper beneath your pen. The ink looks like
it will smudge and bleed, but it doesn't. The ink flow is pretty good, but
there are a few moments where you need to stop and adjust the angle of the pen.
