I have had this pen for several months and just can't leave it un-inked. It fits perfectly in my hand, and it gives me a great feeling. No matter what ink I put in it, it writes beautifully. The pen is stunning. I had to buy another one - the aqua one is just as perfect. And what can you say about Goulet but good things. Their staff is just as customer friendly as Brian, Rachell and Drew. They are almost family!
