I absolutely love stationery, and don't need much of an excuse to treat myself to a new pen! However, I have in the past been swayed by pretty but skinny pens which, after furiously making notes during 3-hour lectures, have left me with a crampy claw hand! So when I saw this pen I thought it might be just the pen for me. It fits beautifully in my hand, the ink flow is consistent and smooth, and the choice of colours is appealing. My pen also came with three refills which was nice. I also think it's great that there is the option of a left-handed version.
There are a few negatives, which are far out-weighed by the positives, but here they are'
* The refills come in blue ink, and I could not find the option of black ink. Sometimes black ink is a requirement, for example filling out application forms, so if Stabilo were only going to go for one colour, I think black would have been the best choice.
* When you remove the lid, you cannot attach it to the end of the pen. I worry that I may lose the lid and the ink will dry out.
All in all I am very happy with my new pen. Now I hope they bring out a mechanical pencil with the same ergonomic design!
