Bought as a gift for my Mother. Looks and feels well made. Reasonable balance in the hand, very slightly top heavy. Perhaps this is normal with this style of pen. The presentation box is a little cheap feeling, being made out of cardboard. Something a little more luxurious with perhaps some subtle branding/logo would have added more value to the whole package. Overall though, I'm very pleased with the product and the service. I will remember this vendor and possibly order from here again.
