Verified Purchase
I love this pen to pieces. It looks great, has a good weight, and the fine nib writes smoothly (line thickness similar to an 0.4mm roller ball) with only a slight amount of scratching on a Field Notes memo book.

I previously had the medium nib "dot" version of this pen, and it wrote about an 0.7 mm equivalent line thickness and bled a bit on the Field Notes memo book. I recommend both versions.

I'm still using the ink cartridge it came with.

I'm coming back to fountain pens after a long hiatus. I love the way this pen looks and feels in my hand. It writes very smoothly. The cap is secure on the front and back.

The one thing I don't like about it is that it's really not a fine nib. It lays down a pretty thick line, comparable to an 1.0mm pen. I got the Pilot Metropolitan pen at the same time. Although that pen is labeled as a medium nib, it lays down a thinner line than this one.

This does not work as a capacitive stylus for iPhone and other modern smart phones. It's for pressure-touch screens only. It would be nice if JetPens mentioned that in the description of this item.

I just bought eleven different kinds of pens and this is my favorite of the bunch. I scarcely have to use any pressure to produce a consistent fine line. Comfy to hold. My one concern is that when I store the cap on the back of the pen it seems a little loose there.

I love the rich color and the extreme smoothness, and the pen is comfortable to hold. The line produced seems thicker than the line on other 0.5mm pens.

I love the ink color. The ink seems to blot a bit.

This pen puts down a tidy thin line but I found that it skipped some unless I put the paper down on a flat surface and used a certain amount of pressure. The 0.7mm version didn't have that problem but the line wasn't as delicate.

The ink flow feels a bit sticky compared to the 0.5mm and this ink color is lighter than I would have preferred. Comfy to hold.
