This has quickly become my favorite gel ink pen. The color is beautiful- dark

Funny, I didn't like this pen at first. It seemed to be dry and scratchy until I
put Iroshizuku ink into it. Then it suddenly began to write with a beautiful
smooth and wet line! At least the one I got seems to be fussy about its ink!
Also the screw-off top was a little annoying at first but it does keep it from
drying out. All in all, it really grew on me! I may even order another one in a
different color, now that I know it only drinks fine wine.
This pen writes amazingly smooth for a pen of this price and it's nice to look
at. Some may not like the way the plastic connects with the metal above the nob.
There's a ridge there so you have to hold it below or above that ridge. It
didn't bother me but someone else who wrote with it mentioned it.
