This was part of my first JetPens order, and I couldn't be happier!

I typically use 0.3-0.4 points, and this isn't quite that small but it is definitely acceptable. (If I had to guess I'd call it 0.5?) This pen writes so smoothly and feels good in my hand. The cap feels very secure and I don't worry in the least bit about it popping off (an issue I've had with other pens similar to this - Papermate's Liquid Expresso/Liquid Flair, for example).

I'm curious as to how long the ink supply will last. I'm looking forward to trying the Fine point and maybe even the Broad points as well.

I don't typically like ballpoint pens [I'm more of a gel girl], but I have to say: I'm highly impressed with this pen. Upon purchase, I was initially worried about the 0.7 ink [again, more of a 0.3-0.4 girl] but have been pleasantly surprised. The pen feels fantastic in my hand - not too big in diameter and definitely not too small. The overall shape of the pen makes it very comfortable; the curves fit my hand well. I am not hugely impressed with the ring in the middle for selecting an initial, but it doesn't annoy me by any means.

I really wish JetPens would post additional photos of this pen. One feature that I absolutely love, I wasn't even aware of until I got the pen. The end to click the pen open/closed is surrounded by a silicone-type cone (similar to the grip).. Whenever you click the pen to open it, the silicone bends and creates a nice little squash. I realize this has nothing to do with the writing ability of the pen but I love this small detail.

All in all, I would recommend this pen to a friend.

This was part of my first JetPens order!

I love the Hi-Tec-C line (G-Tec-C here in the USA), but am generally not a fan of capped pens. When I found this pen, I thought I'd found the perfect little writing instrument for me.. While it is a good pen, it is definitely not my perfect pen. The ink is smooth, as expected, but the barrel is much smaller than anticipated. The barrel is approximately the same size as a G-Tec-C without its cap. However, the Slim Knock feels smaller in diameter than the G-Tec-C (I could be wrong, though). Additionally, the Slim Knock feels basically weightless to me (something I don't care for).

Despite the points above, the pen is great for those that are looking for something compact; the pen would be great for slipping into a small wallet.
