Mont Blanc Classique Ballpoint Refill Broad Black by Montblanc
I'm not sure about this particular refill, maybe it was a dud; in use it's prone to a build-up of ink around the edges of the ballpoint tip.

When working on a more substantive piece of writing I've taken to periodically cleaning the tip with a piece of scrap paper; while this regime solves the problem, it certainly isn't what you'd expect to need to do when using a premium writing instrument.

I needn't have worried, even allowing for this adapter being at the cheap and cheerful end of the scale it's works as well as other much more expensive adapters/devices. I'm very happy with its performance.

More than happy to recommend.

It prompts you on which sockets to plug the probes into, which is handy and will help to minimise the risk of damaging the unit. The probes seem to be good quality and should last for years given normal use. The thermocouple probe for measuring temperature is a useful facility to have. I don't personally see myself measuring dB or lux too often, but you never know when you might need them; likewise the always on ambient… Read more
