I am LOVING the weight...
Verified Purchase
I am LOVING the weight and feel of this leadholder, very solid and substantial (I like my writing utensils on the heavy side). Nice, solid knock mechanism. A pleasure to draw with so far.

Wish I knew what hardness lead came with it, feels to be on the softer side. Also the chrome accent knock button and tip look to be already nicked and scratched! Looks good enough from a distance but if you look closely it's not nice at all.

I just picked this up...
I just picked this up from W*******s, with all these bad reviews in mind, and was somewhat surprised they really carried it. I popped the ink cartridge in, tapped it a couple times on a hard surface (cap-side down), and it wrote. It writes surprisingly well: the nib has a pleasant friction to it, and the ink flows freely for me. I left it uncapped for about a minute and tried writing, it still wrote, which is more than I can ask from a fountain pen. It writes in the expected range of angles for fountain pens (I have quite a few fountain pens). One star off for the styling, however, I don't like the way the pen looks capped. This will replace my "cheap, take anywhere, maybe give away after a while" fountain pen since I gave away my Petit1.

I bought this as a gift, and was really worried about the scraping sound and writing performance but the sound is fine (I was expecting nails on chalkboard) and it writes smoothly. Although, the button is loose enough to rattle a little while writing, which is more annoying than the scraping sound imo.

I love this brush pen!...
Verified Purchase
I love this brush pen! It makes kanji practice so much fun! The tip was a bit stiff at first (like a felt tip) but it became softer with use.

This, this product is...
This, this product is wonderful. Much more effective than relying on corners. I thought I wouldn't be using it much (and I didn't) until I started drawing comics again, and it's perfect since I work on a relatively small scale. I used to use an eraser guard (thin metal sheet with holes) but this is MUCH more convenient and effective. In fact, I may get the smaller round since for some cases this isn't small enough!

Such a cute color scheme,...
Verified Purchase
Such a cute color scheme, standard excellent Jetstream writing, although my first 0.5. A bit less smooth than the 0.7 of course. The tip white and the barrel white are different, however. The barrel is slightly more off-white with the one I received. Sadly I ended up giving this one to my mother (not for that reason, she just really liked it) and will probably order another.

This pen is GLORIOUS!...
Verified Purchase
This pen is GLORIOUS! Of course the grip is incredible, the finish is gorgeous, and it has a nice weight to it. One thing to note however is that the clip design has changed from the above pictures, the clip on mine is mounted at the very end of the barrel, allowing whatever you clip the pen onto to travel the full length of the clip. It is easier to clip while still being secure as well.
