  A joy to use. If this..., February 27, 2014

A joy to use. If this pen had been available in the 1930s, the ballpoint would never have been invented. It writes so smoothly, you'd think you were writing on wet glass. I measured the line width (on Rhodia paper) using a pocket microscope, and it's 0.22mm. This puts it in the same league as the finest rollerballs, like the Slicci or the Hi-Tec C. It never skips, and yet I can rest it point down on a piece of paper and no ink blob forms. It has only happened twice that the nib dried out overnight, and all I had to do was touch it to a wet paper towel to get it going.

The only negatives are that the pen looks cheap (although it is actually fairly sturdy), it has no pocket clip, and that the grip keeps my fingers a little too far from the point for my liking. But those are minor quibbles compared to how well it performs. For eight bucks, it's a steal.
