This was a gift. She loved the pen and loved how it wrote so smoothly.
This pen is comfortable to write with, surprisingly so, with its back-weight. The Dr. Gray design is unique, legible, and informative. And it glows in the dark! It writes a bit thicker line than I prefer, so I also ordered a slightly finer refill (Schmidt P8126) for when the supplied refill runs dry. I would buy from PenBoutique again.
Love the design.
Wonderful, comfortable and balanced pen. Separately, I note the original and memorable pattern on the body of the pen (by the way, not a very bad gift for a medic)). However, a very thick writing line for this roller. Apparently, I will change to "standard ball". Alex
Apparently, this pen is in great demand. I had a difficult time finding anyone who had it in stock. Penboutique does have the pen in stock, and the service was speedy and accurate. As for the pen itself, it is a great pen and a real conversation piece. The pen comes with a roller ball, but also can take Parker ball point refills.
