Review Review Review.

Summary: Very enjoyable, handsome pen. I don't know why it is so little mentioned. My recommendation: buy one.

Extra feature! See Whitelines in action! See how it disappears in the scanner! See how I still manage to defy its lines! Amazing!

Thank you for the review -- I had never heard of this pen before reading the review. Now, I'd like to try one.

Would this have been a contemporary of the Waterman Skywriter?

A PenHero article suggests they were competing for the same market, and shows several companies' similar styles. Now I'll have to learn all about mid-century school pens and buy too many of them, what a bother. Is "school pen" even the right term? I really hope next semester keeps me too busy to mess with pens.

Cool, thanks for this review! I have one of these that I'm slowly working on to get back to write-ability, and I'm glad to hear that it'll be worth the effort.
