I replaced my ink with the ‘bold’ refill and I like how it writes better. that is just a personal thing. Other than that, here are a few impressions.
1. when you put the cap on the back it is a regular size pen and very comfortable. If you leave the cap off it is short and not comfortable. Don’t worry about the cap scratching the body, never had it leave even a mark.
2. This is small when it is folded up – so it is really easy to lose. They sell a clip you can add to it which helps but personally I just keep it in my pants pocket with my wallet. So far have not lost it yet. The finish on the body looks really tough so I think that I could carry it in my other pocket with my keys and it would not get scratched up.
3. makes a unique and cool gift. Works upside down so it is great for me for the checkout sheets at work that are mounted to the wall and I am writing with the pen facing up.
