I just love these pens, but beware they are popular and very nickable so I bought two this time and one of those has already gone walkies. People say Hey that's really neat, when they borrow it, use it and then put it into their pocket or handbag. I'm filling this one with Syrup of Figs or Nitroglycerin so I know who pinches this one! It writes really well. seems to last ages if it isn't pinched. Is very well put together and will last whoever steals it a long time!
