If I could shout from the rooftops how much I want you guys to try out this pen I would. I love it so much! Another new one to my stash and I just can't get enough of it. The pigment is so dark, the tip is so "juicy" every time and even though I feel like I'm not getting AS thin of an upstroke as I can with other medium tip, I don't mind it. and I just love it. Get it get it get it!
