I haven't written a review...

I haven't written a review on this site despite spending hundreds of dollars
here so far, but there are some things that I think people should know before
buying this pen.
The parts that I like about this pen are the refill interchangeability and the
thickness (or rather thinness...). I have tons of G2 refills, signo RT refills,
sarassa clip refills,etc. and they all fit.
The part that I do not like is the fact that the cap scratches the pen body
because of how small the clearance is between the cap and the body. I have the
pilot prera fountain pen, with a similar air tight cap, and it worked great for
that pen (plastic body). For this pen, with its metal body, it scratches.
So, as a recommendation, if you already have a large collection of pens, and
plan to use this one as an everyday carry or a go-to pen (like I am), it's a
great choice. The scratching doesnt really bother me because I know that this
pen is going to see a lot of heavy use and is going to be places where I
wouldn't put pens like my Kaweco AL Sport or Lamy CP1.
If you plan on buying this pen, and some scratches on the barrel will bother
you, I would stay away from it.
