I have several of these, but Orange is definitely my favorite. I've had to defend it from my pen-pilfering sister several times, and I now jealously guard it in my main pen case. It's a great color and a great line width, and I enjoy this pen a ton, especially for making notes on papers that I'm proofreading.

I love using this pen for my daily planner, it's the easiest and simplest way to carry 4 different colors for marking different things, such as homework, classes, assignments, and meetings, without having to carry a separate pen case for the colors I use in my planner.
The colors are easy to change in and out of the body, simply flip up the top and slide out the old ones, and in the new.

I won this in a contest a while back, and I do love it for making varied thick and thin, smooth lines--the ink cartridge lasts quite a while, I'm still on the first one!
The brush is the perfect size, not too thin, not too thick, and the fact that you can cap it up and use it to draw anywhere doesn't hurt either!

Definitey a great pen. I've already started doodling with it.
For those without a desk pen holder--you can use the cap that comes with it. It works just fine, and no one will give it a second look. the only issue is that it slips out of the cap, and doesn't snap on or anything. but if you have an art bag or a pencil case that fits it perfectly, it's no biggie.
I love how it writes, a really nice thin line, no bleeding, no issues whatsoever.
The little silver ring does come off when you unscrew the body, though. So be sure not to lose it when you're using the carts sometime.
What jetpens says _is_ wrong, I got two Sailor cartridges with my pen, along with the box of them I bought to use with it. The ink that comes with it is a good, dark black, and you get two of them--plenty since it's a very thin-writing pen.
I like this pen. and I can't wait to get a desk pen holder for it.
This pen, I've dropped...

This pen, I've dropped it, I've had to push the nib back in, I've had to take it apart and clean it out, then let it dry completely, I've refilled it at least 20 times now because I use it every day to take notes in my classes.
The left-handed grip works perfectly, and this nib has been put through proverbial bootcamp. I've managed to bend the entire thing up by dropping it and then back again with a paper towel, and it still writes smoothly.
Sure, it's not elegant, or fancy, or a $200 monteblanc, but if you want something that "takes a licking and keeps on ticking"(or writing, as it may be), this is the pen to get. And at $11.50, once you do destroy it, it's easily replaced.

Got this in my last order, and I absolutely love it. It's still the ink cartridge that was sent with it, and it doesn't come with a shmancy ink converter or nib cleaner or anything, but it does work beautifully and has a very nice feel to it.
I'm slowly but surely choosing pelikan as my favorite fountain pen company to buy from.
The ink in the included cartridge is a blue-black, and I like using it for everyday writing, because the tip is small enough to not lay down too much ink that it bleeds through paper, but still a nice calligraphy nib for letter-writing and the like.
Heartily recommended to anyone who's making the transition from a regular fountain pen to a calligraphy pen. or starting out in calligraphy.
