Visconti Rembrandt Rollerball
very nice pen
First I should say I'm a bit obsessive about pens. I am always on the hunt for a great one. Here's what's most important to me and in order. First, it HAS to write smoothly and effortlessly. Secondly, it has to feel good in my hand, the grip, the weight,etc. And of course it should be aesthetically pleasing. This one fits all of these categories for the most part. This pen has a nice weight. On a scale of 1-10, its about a 6. That's 10 being the heaviest, 1 being the lightest. That being said it is on the heavier side for me. But that's because I have a mild case of carpel tunnel. My hand starts hurting pretty quickly if a pen is the slightest bit heavy. I still really like it. I just can't use it for long periods of time. The ink flows seamlessly..I also bought the Levenger sampler pack of fiber tip and roller ball refills. And I think I like the Levenger refills even better than what it came with.
And last but not least, the pen itself is just beautiful. I purchased the ivory one. I think this color is very nice for women especially.

Very nice pen
I've been looking for the perfect pen for awhile, and this one is very close.
It has nice weight and balance, the blue of the cap and barrel is very pleasing. It is a little too big for my hand and the top gets stuck on the end of the pen- very small details.
Overall I am very happy with this pen!

Great for writing, poor construction
Like the weight of the rollerball and how the ink lands on the paper. However, only 2 days after receiving the pen, the top silver cap (end opposite the tip) came off and is lost. Still writes well - but looks cheap without the cap. Disappointing.

Love this Pen
I just splurged and bought this pen. I love the weight of the pen and the magnetic closure. But best of all, I love the way the pen writes. The flow of ink is totally smooth, without skipping, and really takes very little effort to write. I have just gotten it, but have taken about 40 pages of notes and no signs that the ink is running out. I would definitely buy this again.

Eloquently designed pen
Eloquently crafted of smooth resin. Like writing on a cloud...ultra light and smooth ink flow. Variated color shading gives it a unique look. Antique feel boasts from the engraved silver trim and signature appointment. Love the magnetic cap closure.
