The Two Tone comes in a package with a short stylus/ballpoint as it's mate, has a conversion system to turn it into a rollerball, and in the brown and black color is quite appealling for such a low priced pen. The chrome accents bring out the semigloss coating on this pen and really make it stand out. The screw on cap also adds a look of quality to the pen in spite of it's low price tag.
The nib on this pen was wonderful right out of the box, an excellent fine tip that wrote as soon as I place nib to paper. I had some issues with nib skipping and ink flow until I popped a Waterman Florida Blue ink cartridge into it, after which I have never again had an issue. The pen writes without hesitation, even after a few days idle and there have been no more problems with skipping or ink flow. With the right ink this nib writes like a dream. For those of you who like a stiff nib, you'll be pleasantly surprised, the Two Tone has a nice stiff nib without writing like a nail.
The weight of the pen is middle of the road, not too heavy for long term use, but also lets you know that you have a solid pen in your hands. With the cap posted this pen is a little off balance, but is easily adjusted to.
The converter is nothing special and has issues with continued flow, I prefer just to use cartridges with this one.
Over all at $19.95 this pen with all of it's extras and fine writing is an amazing deal and would be at an even higher price.
