This review is from: Parker Urban Premium Ball Pen with Gift Box - Mandarin Yellow (Office Product)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A pen shaped like missile has got to be good! It is, with the bottom half (bottom barrel) and the very top in shiny gold (colour) and the middle section in brushed gold (this must be the mandarin yellow section cause the other bits are gold coloured, no matter whose eyes is doing the looking!) effect in a different hue to the other two parts it looks expensive and well made. The nib is exposed by a simple twist to the bottom barrel. Supplied in a very nice Parker two tone box, gold top and black base, with detailed user instructions under the bottom base insert.
It writes well too. I have tried it upright, slanted left and slanted right and it writes evenly in all directions. Not much more one could ask of a biro, so well done Parker. Based on my experience with Parker Pens, I have one that is going on 20 years old and still going strong though admittedly it's a fountain pen, this one should last for years.
If there is a caveat it's around the size of the bottom barrel, it could be a little on the large size, depending how one holds a pen, for some people. In the way I hold a pen, index and thumb to control and finger next to index (it must have a name!) as support, I found it right on the limit of being too large, but my wife who has smaller hands than me found it just right for the way she holds a pen and writes.
