Pros: Materials, Overall Quality
Good little writer
Not too much you can say about this, it's a pen, but I'm going to try since there are nearly no reviews anywhere over this Micarta model.I'm not real sure how to describe my hand size, but I guess if you gave it a "leather glove" size, it'd be a large-medium, or a small-large. I mention that because of the length, it's not a full sized pen at 4-3/8" and is only barely longer than the ink cartridge. Despite the length, it still rests and writes comfortably, it feels really nice to hold. I chose the Micarta for the benefits it's known for, mainly the waterproof and good wet-grip as I work outside doing a lot of pen pushing. No weather keeps us from working outside, including the rain falling on my paperwork so this is a nice option with its ability to accept Fisher ink (guess a lot of pens technically could). I had a leftover Fisher #PR4 from another pen I'd lost that looks like it may be a little too short but could have something placed behind it or the little adapter that comes with it cut down to size and have no issues. I only plan to make it work because I don't want it to waste, they are $6.00 cartridges after all (although totally worth it). I'll be buying the correct size after this but that's a different issue at fault to nobody. The clip is very firm, maybe a little too firm. I'm going to leave it as is for a while and see if it gets a little lighter, and then I'll think about trying to bend it back some. The bolt action is pretty neat, I see why reviews on the other models mentioned it being fun to play with and it feels better than a standard type. It feels like it'll be a new favorite pen for me, it appears like it will be extremely easy to clean or air out the dust. Twist caps are fine but there's the constant twisting that while it never hurt me, it's great not having to deal with it. Regular button pens constantly collect dust and slowly begin to fail. Lid caps... well, it's the fixed blade of pens, which isn't good for a pen if you're constantly writing for a few seconds at a time then put away (which sounds redundant but this isn't a very average job in terms of procedure so it's a pita to keep an open pen).So I guess I actually could say a lot about this pen. I hope this serves well anybody who may have had any questions or thoughts over this pen.
