It feels nice to write with, but the line it puts down is rather watery and faded; if you draw a line really quickly, it will also skip a bit (noticeable when I try to underline or circle things). The case also looks rather lame. I think the pen bodies for the 0.4mm version are much better, so even if you want to use a 0.7mm tip, I'd switch the cartridges (they fit).

For a $3.00 mechanical pencil, this thing is simply awesome. Given it's low price tag, I don't see a good reason for anyone not to order this thing, even if it's just for novelty. It even looks awesome. Excellent value for money.

Personally, I find this pencil much more comfortable to hold than the Uni KT High Grade. The grip and size is more or less perfectly suited to my liking. Mechanism works, but definitely preferable for more heavy handed writers because it requires a little push to get it working. However, the excellent design of this pen's body makes that seem like much less of a chore than the other versions if you're not used to it.

If you're getting a KT, I would recommend this one.

This is probably my favourite colour for the Frixion. The faded colour is the least noticeable.

Just wanted to add something after using this pen for a while: this is my favourite pen, and I have a lot of good stationery (Jetstreams, Signos and other reputedly good stuff). It is incredibly good looking and above all, it writes excellently. It is nicely weighted and comfortable to hold; at first I thought it would be difficult to use for extended of periods of time given that it's thin and made of metal. I was wrong. It is not overly heavy at all and the excellent balance of the pen ensure that it is not exceeding uncomfortable (see my last post though; the cap should be taken off when writing).

Again, highly recommend buying this. Easily worth the $15.

Nice pen in almost every way, except it smudges easily and takes considerable time to try. It's not a big deal, but it just irritates me. If you've used a Signo 207 before, then this is quite similar, except with a much nicer finish and an awesome grip.

I have to say, this one doesn't look anywhere near as cool as the black one. It doesn't detract from the quality of the pen, which is about as good as you can get for $2.25, just thought I'd put it out there.

Excellent pen for only $2.25. I'd definitely pick one up if you're ordering from this site and haven't tried one before. One point of preference I'd like to add: I tried the blue jetstream ink in my 'Style Fit' and it looks nicer than black, in my opinion. That's probably just my taste, though. Either way, you won't go wrong with this one.

Verified Purchase
Nice construction. Should note though, it works better if you like writing with your hand higher up the pen (given the positioning of the grip). It is quite heavy, but most of this is concentrated at the bottom due to the grip, so it's actually not very noticeable when you're writing. Considerably thick due to the grip obviously, so if you like slim pens, you might want to think about that (squeezing the grip can sorta make it feel like it's not as thick as it is, though). In any case, I don't find the dimensions of the pen to bother me at all. Ink is nice, of course.

I doubt you will be disappointed with the quality of the pen as a whole, just be careful that it suits your writing preferences. That being said, it's nothing you can't get used to. I bought a large range of pens recently and this is my favorite ballpoint, so I recommend it.

Don't know about the other reviewers, but the 0.4mm refills I use feel very smooth.
