I've seen reviews of...
I've seen reviews of this color that complained about it being too light. I'm not sure what is expected of an ink called "Sepia," but it is true that it is not a dark brown by any means. And that is its appeal for me. It is dark enough to be very readable, but light enough to offer some shading in the stroke reflecting the speed or direction of the nib. With an italic nib, it is a delight.
If you are looking for a color that has a vintage look to go along with the vintage look of fountain pen writing, this is a great choice.
My only complaint was that it went a bit dry (without quitting writing) in the pen in the middle of a note-taking session, but I think it was a problem of my own making in how I'd filled the pen.

Can't fairly rate this item because it didn't fit in my Bexley Jitterbug. This is a plunger-type converter, so it's nearly double in length when filled.

I like this pen a lot. Writes reliably without any skipping on any paper I've tried. It does great on a single sheet of paper on a hard surface, which plays havoc with my Jetstream pens (they write like a dream otherwise).

I love how compact it is. I can carry it in a pants pocket without it becoming a nuisance or tearing up my clothes.

I would have rated it a five but for a couple of things:
1) The body of the pen is sort of rubberized, which is fine except that it gets dirty and can't really be wiped clean. My white one looks pretty dingy.
2) The spring seems a little weak on the extend/retract mechanism. I have to keep it extended and ready for eight hours at a time and it seems to be leaving the spring mechanism a little compressed and loose when the pen is retracted.

Finally, and this is my problem not a problem with the pen, it's not at all obvious how how the ink cartridge would be removed and replaced, unless you just yank it out. But I am unwilling to try it on a $10 pen for fear of destroying it . I am sure the folks at JetPens will be happy to instruct me whenever I get around to asking.

I want to amend my comment about how easily the pen retracts. It does retract a little too easily for my taste, but it does NOT retract when jarred.

Love this pen. It is...

Love this pen. It is everything the other reviewers say it is. Ridiculously smooth writing pen. Wish I'd found jetstream sooner!

I might have given this pen a 4.5 instead of a five for one reason: the pen retracts too easily. The slightest touch or even jarring the pen causes it to retract. Still, it's a really cool pen and I love having all the colors available in a single pen for the work I do.

I absolutely love this...
Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this pen. It is true that it lays a somewhat heavier line than expected of a .3mm pen, but it is soooo smooth. I like the slightly hefty size and feel of it and the rubberized case, although if you are one who slips your pens in and out of a shirt pocket frequently, the rubber case will become a nuisance. Great pen. And how often do you get such great pen in interesting colors?
