Got the pen today and just wanted to post a quick photo and a few words before heading back to work.
I would like to do a full review with a number of photos and update the review after some long term use of the pen.
Would it be best to start a post in the Review section for that or just post it here?
I was not sure if the Review section would be the place for a pen review or if it was just for multitools and knives.
My very first thought was that is was maybe a bit longer then I thought it would be.
Once I got it out of the package (got photos of that too.. ) it did not seem bad for size at all.
Then I pulled the cap off and thought wow! It seem to be made out of some heavy gage steel.
I thought it would have a cheaper feel to it as I have had some other (police) space pens and for the price I thought they had kind of a cheap feel to the bodies.
Not this one!
On the the writting. The first test on paper was preaty amazing. Once again the other 4-5 space pens I have used alway's seem to have a bit to thick of a line and the start alway's left some what of a blob of ink at the start.
Once again, not this one. Seems to write about the same size line as a pilot G-2 .05 ( my daily pen)
I thought the pilot was much smoother then my other space pens too, as they alway's seem to have a thick feel to the ink, unlike my pilot G-2's.
This may change over time, thus the reason for a longer on going , put it to use in the field test.
Here is one quick snap shot.
