Altho I tried several times I couldn't get the ink to flow in a steady fashion. In fact half the time it quit flowing at all! Might as well had bought a cheapie!

I bought this pen to write letters to a friend who does not have computer access. I am very pleased with the way it writes.
The only downfall is the ink runs out quickly, but I am also writing a lot of pages 10-15 per letter.

Rated 4 out of 5�by Khnem The jury is still out.....
This item seems to potentially be a good product. The product I received at purchase is one what I choose to be a believe got through the quality assurance process. The cartridge fit into the bottom part of the pen with the nib but the first stage, the part with the cartridge and the nib did not properly align and therefore after several attempts did not come together to create or form one unit the unit eventually broke altogether into two pieces.
However, although through a pen that was slightly angled, the pen wrote immediately without incident. There was no skipping and I did not have to press down to make ink come onto the page. There was no ink bleeding on the page or in my pocket which has ruined more than one suit or sport jacket. Since I do write letters and send them via USPS (remember that?) having a writing instrument that enhances the writing experience is important to me. At the price point that that I purchased the pen, I can't say that it is the Mont Blanc writing experience but dollar for dollar I'd purchase this writing instrument before a Mont Blanc. I have owned Mont Blanc.
I look forward to replacing this pen ASAP. If the replacement experience is without incident I'll edit the review. Let's see what happens next.
