    Overall, I really like the pen. It has a nice, quality feel, and is comfortable for extended writing sessions. The artwork is really nice and tasteful, too. The pen came with a gel refill already inside. I'm really pleased with this purchase, and feel it was very good value.

    A beautiful pen that's worth all the money. It writes well and is one of my favourites now. It may be a little bit lightweight though, but that's only a very small part that doesn't bother me that much

    I've bought 3 of these now, one for me and the others for presents. They are simply beautiful and every pen-lover's dream. They are great in the hand, weighted nicely, write beautifully and look fantastic.
