I purchased the Regal James (red) version of this pen, and while the grip is a little more narrow than I prefer, the writing experience is pretty smooth. I was happily surprised by my purchase. Until 2 weeks later when my fingers were covered in ink every time I used the pen.
After wiping around the section and nib area, I discovered that the section was leaking at the point where the metal meets the plastic part of the section. There's nowhere I can see to fix this or plug up the leak, so I'm afraid two weeks was all I was able to get out of this pen.
Ultimately, I'm very disappointed with this product!
