An incredibly smooth writer
By: Crispy from New Braunfels, Texas, USA
I just received my Taccia Timeless Hexagon ballpoint pen and have been very impressed with it. The pen is actually a little larger and heavier than I expected, but I like the heft of it. The pen is nicely balanced, the finish is ruggedly attractive and the twist mechanism is smooth. I generally would prefer that it have tad more resistance when twisting, but that is just my own bias.
What impressed me immediately upon first use was the incredibly smooth writing quality of the refill. This is easily one of the smoothest ballpoints I have ever used! Writing with it is a pleasure! I think that prolonged writing might be less attractive because of the shape and weight, but that remains to be seen.
Normally I don't buy ballpoints, preferring fountain pens for most writing, so I tend to think that more expensive ballpoints are over priced because the refill is what writes. This pen, however, is exceptional, and the refill is amazingly smooth. Well worth the price!
What is your opinion of the quality of this item?
The Taccia Timeless Hexagon ballpoint is an outstanding pen! I think that giving it as a gift one would need to recognize that it is a hefty pen, and the hexagonal shape may not be comfortable to some writers. However, it's unique finish and exceptional writing quality make this a nice gift for any pen afficionado.
