I am a pen freak. This is the only pen I use at work, and if you try to take it – I will walk around the office until I find it -that’s how good this pen is. I constantly get compliments when people borrow it in the office – “This is a nice pen”. Its so smooth, the ink never stops or gets clogged, it basically runs all the way until there is nothing left. Im a left hander, so I need a pen that dries quickly before my hand rolls over it – this is it, no smudges, and no ink blotts on the edge of my hand. Ive tried every gel pen that Staples and Office Depot carry, and this is BY FAR the best.
