I got this pen in my subscription box this month. I wouldn't usually buy a pink pen, but the color is nice and I got several comments on it in class yesterday. Yes- I was in an ISO 9001 class, and took notes all day. I actually ran my pen dry, so I got a really good look at how it writes. I find it to be smooth and flowed nicely on my journal and on the notebook provided by the instructor. (the paper was some kind of slick coated paper.) The ink they send was Noodlers, Operation Overlord Orange. What a fun pen to have! It was easy to fill, didn't leak on me and it has a very nice weight in my hand- lid on. Thanks!
