A Chinese pen of 1 quid would be superior
on 16 January 2015
Initially I quite liked this pen; it looked substantial, the gold trim looked professional and elegant. However, after a few months use, it became completely a nuisance:
1. It takes several seconds to keep its tip on the paper before ink starts flowing. When it does it is still unreliable, staggers and overall writes too thick. In my opinion the pen completely fails as an everyday writing tool.
2. The gold paint has started to fade after a few months. Now, the pen looks like a a very cheap pen with a fading gold paint leaving a very dull cheap looking surface behind - highly disappointing.
I am maybe a little bit stupid, but I have just ordered Parker's Sonnett pen - I hope the higher price translates into higher quality.
