      by fromalmost great I've had this pen for a month now and after day three of having it attached to my keychain, I took it off. It writes nice, but I prefer black ink and I prefer it to stay on my keychain. The problem is how the cap screws on. It simply is not tight enough to stay screwed on. Since the cap is the part with the clip, if it unscrews all the way, you lose the pen, leaving you with the useless cap. I like that it is very lightweight. You won't notice it wherever you hang it. The stylus works well and is a smaller tip which I like better than the standard fat tips found on the average stylus. All in all, you can fix the cap problem by tape or a thicker o-ring or by tightening it so tight you feel you might break the plastic, but I rather the product not have to be fixed.

      by fromGood to have around I like having a pen with me, even if I don't use it much, so putting one on my key chain was an ideal way to "set it and forget it," so to speak. As probably stated everywhere else, this pen is driven by a universal Fisher Space Pen refill, rebranded as inka, which is great. While it obviously won't last as long as a full size Fisher PR refill, it's good as a backup pen. My concerns about the pen are in regards to its construction. First, the stylus part is held on by two tiny clips, but on my particular unit, I can only get one or the other to clip in, but not both at once. It appears to be secure enough, but time will tell if it affects performance. Second, when you screw the pen part back into the carabiner, there's an O-ring that helps keep it in place. I feel like if I try to unscrew the pen right after screwing it back on, it's much easier to dislodge it from the top. After it settles for a while, it requires more force to remove. The pen has come off once in my pocket after being used, so hopefully I'll remember to screw it down tight and I won't lose it. All in all, I'm happy with it.

      by fromMightier Than the Sword I've been putting this little pen to almost daily use for the past month and am generally pleased with its performance. If you are going to have a pen that is constantly available (on your person, that is) this is not a bad choice. It has the advantages of being small and lightweight, plus it has that built in carabiner clip so that it can be secured to something (keychain, cell phone case, or belt loop). As a pen it performs reasonably well. The ink delivery is smooth and consistent, the pressurized ink cartridge is nice for writing in less than optimal (angled writing desk) conditions, and though I don't use it much, I suppose the electronic-sensitive stylus is value added. I always say about any piece of equipment... "what's the best _____?" (in this case "pen"). Answer: the one that you have on you. This light, clip-on pen is unobtrusively handy where some other, better, but heavier pens are not always. What isn't so great about it? Honestly, the screw on cap arrangement worries me a bit because of past experience with equipment held on by screw threading. It hasn't happened yet, but I can envision the day when I look down and find only the carabiner cap dangling from cell phone case because the pen has rotated itself free with jostling and gravity. Also, for longer periods of writing, alas, this pen design is not the most ergonomic. I remedied this a bit with the additional of some silicone tape wrapped around the grip portion of the shaft. That aside, I am happy with this product and would definitely buy it again. As an interesting side note, I would like to mention that it IS refillable and that the refills themselves make good mini-pens. In fact, the Inka refill is precisely the same dimensions as the tiny mini-pen that comes in the side scales of the Victorinox Swiss Army Knife.
