Overall What is your opinion of the quality of this item? Since I received this pen several days ago, I have been using it on a regular basis. The nib is very smooth, and ink flow is excellent and perhaps even a little wet. The converter works as it should, so I am very satisfied with the pen’s performance. On these previous pens, I did take some issue with the grip, for I found it very slick and sometimes difficult to hold. This pen completely solves that, and I find this grip comfortable and fully functional. I have many Retro 61 pens, and their quality is high and consistent. This year’s design evokes for me a feeling of happiness and optimism, not only in keeping with the Cherry Blossom Festival but spring itself. It is not only a pleasure to use but to look at as well.
