We bought two of these...
We bought two of these in Japan years and years ago. One for me and one for my
husband. He used his maybe a week. I can't remember why. I use mine
intermittently through the years, but when I do use it, it is day-in day-out,
heavy duty workhorse.
Mine does have minor paint chips and scratches, but I have abused the pen. It
gets thrown in bags and pockets. The mechanism still works smoothly. There are
no loose joints. The refills do not wobble when I write. I mostly use 0.4
black gel refill and I love it! That's the main reason I keep going back to this
pen. The ink is smooth, dark and consistent.
The pen is expensive, and I am constantly buying and carrying refills. So be
warned. This is an expensive investment. This is like putting premium gas in a
gas-guzzling sports car. I could not have afforded this as a student. But
since I'm not a student, I spoil myself with this pen. I would definitely buy it
again, but it's not for everyone.
