This pen makes me love writing. I can change the ink color if i wish. Refills are easy to come by and relatively cheap. I do tend to get ink on my fingertips every once in a while, but it’s a small price to pay for better penmanship. It almost makes me want to write in cursive, if i knew how. - pavethewayforthemantaray
