Just recently received one of these in my last order. I have had some issues with past mechanical pencils I have tried, but this one seems to be one of the best I have seen in a long time. Some of the other reviews (on the other colors) indicated that the eraser cap feels a bit loose, which it is able to freely spin however it has a resounding snap as it clicks on to the back of the pen and doesn't come off very easily. The lead advancing mechanism is well made and the grip is comfortable. Finally I really like the size and overall feel of this pen. Awesome buy if you need a decent mechanical pencil that won't have any issues.

I must contradict the previous review of this ink. I have used Parker Quink for quite some time it has a deep black color and dries relatively quickly. The lines are sometimes a bit watery, but not to the extent of many other inks I have used. Perhaps this previous reviewer got a lemon or something strange, because from my perspective this is a solid buy. Try it out for yourself.

This pencil is pretty nice but not amazing. The barrel seems to be made of a type of plastic however the eraser cap and front end seems to be made of metal. The overall feeling of the pencil is a bit shaky and the back cap seems to fall off easily. The lead indicator is a piece of loose tape under a plastic bit that can become loose if the front metal end isn't on properly. The clip is pretty cheap but works alright. The mechanism for pushing out the lead is actually really good in contrast and I haven't had any real issues with it. The back part which holds the eraser in place, a little metal bit is extremely easy to bend and break as well. Overall it is functional, just a bit cheap feeling. That is to be expected however for such a low price.

This pen is wonderful, from the high-quality plastic to the super smooth nib, this thing has blown me away completely. This is a must buy for anyone looking to switch to a fountain pen, but doesn't have very much money. Also shipping from Jetpens was very fast and there were no issues at all. This was a great first purchase and probably many more will ensue...
