I bought this for myself for Christmas/New Years and I love this pen. It has a wonderfully smooth writing experience, the weight balance and diameter of the pen limits hand fatigue when I write for pages. The amount of ink this pen holds has been awesome for work trips when taking meeting notes or old school handwriting drafts of articles. I have goofed twice and forgot not to post the pen when it was unlocked and in the process of removing the cap from the unlocked ink forced a good bit of ink out, but that was on me and not the pen. It is easy to fill with the Pineider travel filler. I would recommend getting that filler if you get this pen.
