This is a great looking...

This is a great looking pen, no doubt. It's definitely fun to play around with
and the compact form factor makes it extremely comfortable to carry around in a
Problem is, it's the worst writing utensil I've ever owned.
After using it for a couple weeks, it stopped writing, as if it had run out of
ink. I don't do a lot of writing at all at work (most of my work is done on a
computer) so I probably only got one week of life out of it.
I wrote an email to JetPens complaining about this, and they apologized and sent
me a free ink refill right away (great customer service!)
I popped the new ink in, and the pen lived again! FOR ONE MORE WEEK.
It's currently just functioning as a piece of art on my desk at work. Every
once in a while I pick it up and try to write with it, knowing I'm just going to
end up disappointed.
Now, I think most of the blame lies with the ink cartridge ITSELF, because when
I remove it from the pen body and try to write with it, it does the same thing,
it acts likes it's bone dry, even though it's brand new.
So bottom line, if you want a good looking, compact pen and you don't really
need it to work for more than a month, go with this one.
