I love this pen. It has a nice design and a good weight to let you know you're not using a $2.00 pen. The ink cartridge that comes with the pen writes smooth. The only problem I had was with the refill pack. I tried one of the blue ones and it seem to 'bleed' on the paper more often than what came with the pen. I hope it's just a defective one. Otherwise, it's a great everyday pen.

I bought this pen because I loved using the Platinum Preppy, but I wanted something more sturdy and long lasting. This pen does writes well, just like the Preppy BUT, as noted by the previous reviewer, "There is a significant depression around the nib section; when I filled the pen using the converter there was ink sitting in this depression that I found impossible to remove." I also ran into that situation and I had ink splatter on my paper when I inadvertently dropped it. I, too, prefer using a converter with bottled ink and my resolution was to just fill the pen up half way, remove it from the bottle and then retract it again so that the ink in the 'depression' would be sucked back into the converter. There was still some ink left, but it did not splatter as much initially and then it went away as i continued to use it. I should really give this 3 stars for the inefficiency, but I give it 4 stars because I like the feel/weight of the pen and how it writes just as well as the Preppy.

At this price, it's a steal; I have one of these and it works great. I just wish it was a little heavier.

It states Royal Blue, but on paper, it looks more like a lighter shade of blue. However, I'm giving it 4 stars because it works well on my Lamy Safari fountain pen---smooth and consistent!
