Aside from the other reviewer, whos only real problem is that they did not flush the pen prior to using it, nothing a quick rinse would not have taken care of....

it is a wonderful pen, a daily workhorse and if you get board of it you can swap out the nib with a pilot plumix medium italic....

REVISION (from review on black body) --- This pens barrel, based on my use at my desk, is prone to cracking, and making the pen unusable. This may be because of the increased barrel weight if it is dropped. This pen has become non functioning after limited desk use, due to barrel cracking by a drop of 3' (desk height onto vinyl flooring).

Good while it lasted, but it did not last long. My Zebra was well over a year and still going.

First lets say this is a LARGE Multi pen. It is longer than the Zebra clip on, and much heftier. It is also more durable. I love the Zebra, do not get me wrong, it has been my daily work pen for the past year. This one made the zebra go to the drawer. I have a large hand so the size is not an issue, the weight is well balanced, the clip is sturdy and the ink slides are well laid out and sturdy also. The pencil is a shaker, but is not advanced by simple movements, you need to give it a real shake for it to advance. It puts out the perfect amount of lead regardless of if you shake or knock it.

The inks are the pilot inks we know and love. they lay down silky smooth, like a .5 hi-tec c. The red ink even has a littel red band around the tip.

Drawback the black lever is really darker gray and the pencil is lighter gray, once you get the locations this will not be a problem. I also have not figured out how to refill the pencil, since there are no instructions....
