A very nice pen for a good price

Pros: writing is very smooth and consistent. If you're quick/delicate with your strokes you can get some good line weights out of it and I've found that unlike most water based pens once you let the ink settle in the page its actually quite water resistant (lines only get a bit hairy)

The only real con is that the inks water based so it takes a bit to soak into heavier papers so smudging can be a big issue if you're quick to grab an eraser or slide your hand a lot, on lighter sketch papers (-50lb) it tends to want to bleed through, but so far this hasn't occurred or been an issue to me personally it just prevents me from using the other side of the page.

TLDR:
- good pen, good price
- lines can be tapered
- fun for sketching and note taking but would not recommend for serious archival work

I came back to re-order this pen, and saw only one customer reviewed it thus far. I would give this pen five stars even if it didn't cost this much. I can't even BELIEVE that such a great pen is that inexpensive. For those of you who are reading before purchase, this is a needle-style point, capped pen. The needle is wide enough that it won't bend if you put a bit of pressure on it. It writes evenly and rarely skips. The only con I can think of is that it goes through ink quickly and it can make the other side of the page (if you have paper that isn't too thick) unable to be used because of the thru-paper visibility of the gel ink. You cannot beat the price, and no matter how you think about this pen, it's a win/win! :)
