I picked this up for...
, October 5, 2011
I picked this up for 1100 yen in Tokyo this summer, so Jetpens is offering this
for a really fair price. I had previously been using the cheaper, clear
3-cartridge body, and I finally wanted to upgrade to something a little more
grown-up looking. All in all, I'm really happy with this body. It operates just
as smoothly when deploying the pens, and has a good weight to it. Other reviews
on the web have questioned why the bottom half of the barrel can be unscrewed,
as it serves no real purpose... but I actually like this feature, since I can
quickly check the ink levels without having to extract the cartridge from the
However, if you need the rubbery grip of the cheaper clear models, then you
might not like this pen. It's got a matte finish (doesn't show fingerprints
yay!) but I find it to be just the right thickness, so it has never slipped from
my grasp. I'd recommend this to anybody who loves the coleto-c series and wants
a more "serious"-looking pen.
