I bought one of these at a local shop, did some extended writing with it, and compared to my other favorite pens. It's quite a good pen, and the ink dries rapidly which is a plus for us LEFT-HANDED WRITERS. If you have a good writing speed, like I do, you have probably experienced some pens that need a "pause" because of starvation at the tip. These pens have a generous supply, so the next step if you do a lot of writing is to also have a good notebook like a RHODIA whose pages are still designed for real ink. With these pens you can have a beautiful stroke, almost like a good fountain pen, and unlike many others, they don't leak in your pocket in hot weather. Only drawback is that the ink supply is a bit limited. Buy them by the dozen. The blue ones have a nice dark color.
The amount of ink in these is outstanding. They take forever to run out. I usually end up losing the pen well before it runs out of ink.
These pens are tough. I forgot I had one if these pens in the pocket of my work shirt before I ran it through the washer and dryer. When I took the shirt out there was no signs that the pen leaked on the shirt.
The area where the fingers grip seems to be a place where the ink likes to drip into. This only seem to happen if the pen is sitting in the hot or frozen car. Never had the containment been breached though.
The only down side to these pens is if you are done writing something, you need to take the pressure off the tip or ink will continue to flow, and a blob of ink will form on the paper.
