If you love fountain...
If you love fountain pens, but you are always on the run, this is the pen for you. I purchased this pen locally, because I wanted to support a local pen shop, but if that wasn't there, I would have gone to Jetpens. No cap to fumble around with or lose, If you have medium to large sized hands, you can even open this one handed. I've put it through its paces writing a years worth of medical school notes, and with a fine nib, I only need to refill once, at midday. With the new EF nib unit, I suppose it would cut down on the refills even more.

This ink is very interesting....
Verified Purchase
This ink is very interesting. It will make your pens write like a dream. It goes on nice and smooth, and doesn't feather, no matter how junky your paper is. It's light proof, as well as waterproof. If you want something to withstand anything you throw at it, this is the ink. It cleans off very easily with water, but does tend to leave a residue that can just be wiped off. It does have a unique smell, but if you've used any acrylic paints, it's 1/100 of that smell. It's pricey, but for those who demand it, there are no substitutes.

I had a chance to handle...
I had a chance to handle this pen in person, and I'd like to say that this is a very well built pen. The cap posts smoothly, and it feels substantial. I certainly don't believe that the weight to cost can be applied to any pen, as I have some custom ebonite pens, and they are light, but certainly not cheap, and I also have cheap no name pens, that have a metal barrel that is heavy. This pen, didn't feel too light, especially for its size. It's a bit smaller than what I'm used to, but it fits my large hands just right. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this pen for myself, and neither should you. The line is just exactly what I expect from Pilot, not too wet, not too dry, but wet enough for its fine nibs to glide effortlessly over the paper.

Verified Purchase
OW.... This is very unexpected. The refill itself is about 2 inches long. I am glad that I bought 2 of the same for a 3 slot Sharbo, but REALLY? How much can you write with this? I hope a decent amount. Doesn't look like much, and considering it's a gift, I'd really REALLY hope that its going to last a while. Considering the price, I'd hate to have my sis keep shelling out for refills...

This is a wonderful ink,...
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful ink, permanent on paper, and a subdued blue, it has become my daily writer ink for my school work where I can't risk my notes smudging. It's a bit pricey here, as I can get a 350 ml bottle of this ink in Hong Kong for what amounts to $15 USD, but at least you don't have to fork out a $2000 airplane ticket. It's still a good deal, especially for the properties it offers: smooth, well behaved on a variety of papers, and permanent (on paper). I would get more in a heartbeat when I run out. On top of that, it's got the old-timey ink smell to it. I think it's the only one with that scent, and it just might be the preservative they use.
