This is a very nice pen...

This is a very nice pen and well worth the price. I think the only ballpoints in
the $15-$20 price range that I would rate higher would be the Caran d'Ache 849
and the Lamy Safari.
However, it is a pity that Spalding has seemingly discontinued the wood series
ballpoints. They had the same fine quality and affordable price. The orange one
was particularly nice. JP doesn't sell them but stay away from the Spalding
'Streamline' collection. I think they are the line that replaced the wood
ballpoints. They are a cheap plastic and of an obviously lower quality. Spalding
has them for $15 but I'm not sure they are even worth half that.
