Parker Jotter Premium Ballpoint Pen Medium Point Stainless Steel Barrel Blue Ink - Reviews
Parker Jotter Premium Ballpoint Pen, Medium Point, Stainless Steel Barrel, Blue Ink is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Andrew from Style over Substance It's not actually metal. Its innards are cheap plastic, and it just has a metal shell. The ink cartridge it comes with writes no better than a Bic. The spring mechanism is stronger than the friction of the screw cap, so it can unscrew itself if you don't tighten it hard (which means that after a few months, it'll probably need tape to keep it together). There's a weird rim of raised metal at the clicky part that can cut your thumb if you're not careful. The click of the cap feels and sounds excellent, but that's the only positive about the build quality of this expensive pen. I used to use a Jotter when they were made of solid metal and cost about $6, but this is one of the worst pens I've ever used. I prefer a Bic to this seriously disappointing "fine writing instrument".
