The pen feels lighter than I thought it would be for a pen with a metal body.
The clicking system feels a little flimsy. I'm not sure I really like this pen
as much as I hoped. The ballpoint doesn't write better than a cheap papermate
ballpoint pen. But this pen looks good and people will comment positively on it.
This is a handsome pen that writes beautifully - nice smooth dark lines.
However, I was disappointed that the refill listed on Jetpens for this pen is a
"Uniball" refill and not a "A. G. Spalding & Bros" refill - which is what is
marked on the ink cartridge that is inside the pen when it arrived. I tried out
the "Uniball" refill - seems to write just as well, but I wish it was from
Spalding anyway... For this this pen loses a star.
By the way the Ohto ceramic rollerball refills fit this pen perfectly too.
This is fine as mechanical pencils go but I'm still wearing the tip to a slant -
the lead isn't turning enough to do what it is supposed to do, which is to wear
to a point. The looks of this pencil are ok, but not extraordinary.
I just received my order with three of these pens (two in black, one in blue)
and I'm impressed. After you remove all the stickers the pen looks very
professional, elegant and sleek - and much more expensive that it really is! The
pen has a good weight to it and is not at all flimsy or cheap feeling when you
hold it in your hand. The cap clicks when you close it and when you post it at
the back of the pen when you are using it. It writes as well as any Hi-Tec C or
G-Tec C4 - smooth, but needle-sharp and substantial.
One thing I've discovered with this pen which for me really makes it even more
incredible value for the money is that you can use a lot of different refills
for the pen body, not just the Pilot Cavalier refill! This is a list of refills
that also work (I just tried them):
Pilot G-Knock 0.38 mm refill (if you are not a fan of needlepoint pens but want
the same fine line)
Pilot G-2 refill
Uniball Jetstream refill
Uniball Premier 207 refill
Hi-tecpoint V5 RT refill
Super cute and the brushed metal body is so elegant. Writes like a dream - sharp
and smooth at the same time. Capped it's short so it doesn't take up space and
is easy to carry around. I love this pen.
The metal body of this pen makes it really striking - a colleague picked it up
from my desk and was instantly impressed! Beautiful saturated ink flow and lines
as would be expected from G2... I love this pen!
This a beautiful pen - classy and professional looking. The description is
accurate - it writes sharp and smooth at the same time! The black lines are
gorgeous, and the weight of the pen is just right. Putting the cap at the back
of the pen was tricky at first - you have to slide the silver part of the cap
into the space between the silver and blue part at the end of the pen - but once
you understand it, it's easy! A great pen to use at the office.
