This is quite possibly...

This is quite possibly the best pen I've written with. When I see interesting
pens, I usually buy one just to place it in my writeability list. I have a very
fluid writing style halfway between 'elegant' and 'unreadable,' so I'm always
looking for that one smooth, dynamic, heavy ink pen. Too thin a line, too
scratchy, or too much bleed, and the charm goes away.
This guy is perfect. It looks great, and it's light but with enough weight that
when I'm swinging it around (as much as one does when writing as I do) it swings
with me. Like I'm not going to lose my rhythm because I put a letter down too
quickly. The ink is dark, solid, and a good thick line. A man's line. A line to
be proud of. The ceramic ball is new to me, but I could tell the difference as
soon as I started writing. It doesn't matter if I'm scribbling furiously or
lightly taking notes - the line's the same.
The only problem I've run into is that the cap doesn't sit as well when you're
writing. I've taken to just leaving it off, but the main body of the pen is kind
of short. Not so short that it's unusable, but because of the tapered end, it
feels like it's going to slip into my palm. It won't; I'll get used to it - it's
just something I've noticed.
