Tornado Classic Lacquer Pen


Perfect for me...Courtney

Perfect weight and resistance

I bought this as my "daily pen" and the action is very smooth- the pen is balanced well and weighs a decent amount so you don't lose control easily. The action to "uncap" the pen tip is also very smooth, but has a lot of resistance (this might be a good or bad thing depending on your preferences); it also does not make a clicking noise when the tip snaps into place (again, may be good or bad, I prefer it noiseless). Wish it came with various different tip sizes, but otherwise a great daily pen!

Sister loves it

Purchased as a Christmas gift for my sister and she's had nothing but great things to say about it.
