This pen has been on my radar for a long time. I write a lot, and so have been considering investing in a pen that I would enjoy writing a lot with. I'd caught Neil Gaiman mentioning it on Twitter as a pen that he uses pretty exclusively for book signings which, for him, must be pretty exhausting and demanding pen sessions. Respecting his opinion on such things quite a lot, and after doing a lot of my own research, I jumped in.
To date, my pens have been under $50 (Lamy Al-Star, Safari, and a whole lot of cheap Chinese pens). I did try buying a Pilot Namiki Falcon a few years ago through Levenger but that was a train wreck and I still have Pen Traumatic Stress Disorder from that purchase. Spending a lot on a pen again, especially a Pilot, took a lot for me to screw up the courage to do after that.
No writing samples below, but it suffices to say we're off to a great start. I'm keeping this one loaded up with Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses and it's working out quite lovely thus far.
