Sorry about the title, but the finish on this pen tends to make one giddy with happiness to the point of using slightly questionable judgement in expression, and not giving two figs about it! But I do give this pen two thumbs up! If you like gold, you will love this pen. If you are indifferent about gold, you will love this pen. If you don’t like gold and always select white metal finishes, you will love this pen. Need I say more? Oh yes, you will love Truphae’s customer care!
