A no-nonsense, good quality, well-priced hardworking pen. I picked this pen up
on a whim on my last order and was pleasantly surprised at ti's performance.
The 0.4 mm feels like it's actually 0.4. My experience with needle point pens is
that they are scratchy and the tips can sometimes feel fragile. The morning
glory has a sturdy needle point that I'm not afraid to put a bit of pressure on
and writes surprisingly smooth (on bulk 3-ring binder paper and standard printer
paper at least).
The design of the pen is simple and straightforward. There is no grip but it
doesn't seem to get slippery when I'm writing for extended periods like some
pens do. The metal clip does not hurt the web of my hand between thumb and
forefinger as some metal clips do (I have large-ish hands, so this can be an
issue for me).
The ink is a nice dark black, and writes smoothly, doesn't skip and writes the
first time every time yet it does not seem to bleed through the paper very much.
The pen can be left uncapped for a while (for example, when taking notes in
class) without any threat of drying or skipping ink.
Overall, I found the morning glory mach II 0.4 mm liquid ink pen surprised me
with the quality and usability. Before ordering it, I had not heard of this type
of pen, but I'm glad I got it. Add this pen to your next order - you won't
regret having this hard worker in your arsenal!
