I was somewhat surprised at the look of this pen when I first
received it. The 'slots' on the top of the pen (where you
put the cap) are much more obvious than in the pictures.
It looks it bit cheap to me. It wrote well (exactly
like the Lamy Safari -- same nib), so I kept it.
Unfortunately, after using the pen for a month,
the silver paint on the plastic top of the pen
started flaking off, perhaps exacerbated by
taking the cap on and off. Now it looks really
beat up, so it sits in the drawer, unused.
Lamy really cut some corners on the top of the pen, it's
painted plastic, not chrome plated metal.
