This pen has its faults. Yet I keep coming back to it, because it's a cool and
The point is scratchy. One should expect a superfine nib to be scratchy, and
this one is very, very fine. But my next finest pen, a Sailor HighAce Neo, is
worlds smoother. It's also prone to skipping and slow starting when using a
less-than-sturdy writing support, like a folder. I assume that's mainly due to
the fineness as well, and it's flawless on a desk surface.
I get a lot of nib creep, to the point of having a few tiny ink spots in the
cap. This isn't a real problem, but it's also not present on many other pens.
In any case, the shape is really as awesome as it seems it might be. The
three-sided grip part is smooth and comfy (for a lefty, no less) and it's just
an interesting pen. I'll be interested in how the black body compares, but IMHO
this pen is worth the price.
