This pen has a strong clip, so it doesn't drop out of your pocket; the top fits with a good "click" so it doesn't come off accidentally; it looks and feels great and ... oh, yes, it writes well too (although not on the internet!) That is what I wrote when I got this pen. Now I still use it but it looks terribly shabby because all the paint has softened and is falling off. It reveals the brass behind. Still like the pen to write with, but it is NOT the style icon it was.
