Out of the the small hand full of $20+ pens I've owned this one has the best build quality. The monocoque shell feels weighty and solid without being too heavy. The hexagon/pencil-shape is familiar and grips very well, plus it makes it very easy to twirl in your fingers.The writing is fluid and smooth, but I would say the Parker Jotter bests it in this category. The ink tank is HUGE! Just pull it out of the pen and you'll see.
My only "con" to this pen is that the clicking motion isn't satisfying enough (the click of the Jotter, again, comes to mind). This is mostly because Caran d'Ache intended for it to be silent.
Still this is the Only pen I intend to have for the next decade (and probably more) and I have bought it as gifts for several friends who love it too.
I highly recommend it if you enjoy writing stuff down and are responsible about keeping your pens.
