poor housing design
THis pen is great because it fits in the pocket briefcase. The ink and roller ball also work great. But the bottom of the pen doesn't stay tightly screwed to the base and at $29 this pen is a poor value

It Needs a Clip
It's a nice travel pen that I was planning on using with my Pocket Briefcase I bought last year, however the pen keeps falling out due to the Retro 51 Tornado pen I have been using stretching out the spine.
I guess this pen would work fine if it is used immediately as the only pen with the Pocket Briefcase, however if I use it now, I will undoubtedly lose it within a few days.

works just like I want
I carry my pocketini pen in a micro purse -- pretty much a large wallet that also holds the pen, a nail file and some collapsible chopsticks along with my money, cards and ID. I like the size, I don't have to struggle to write with it like I do the darling walletini pen. I can use it for notes if I ask for or give a business card and whenever I need a pen, which is often. The only thing that would make me happier is if I could get a refill with a broader, darker line.

Nice, but no....
The square shape actually hurts to write with. Yes, it does not roll around, but with the smooth glossy finish, it is still slippery. It slides out of the case I bought it with. I have also experienced the skipping when writing with the pen. It does not seem to use any "normal" type of refill- not a good choice. I have replaced this with a Targus stylus pen. It fits, doesn't slip, and uses a Parker refill. So now I can use the stylus end with my iPhone when I have gloves on and I still have a pen to write with. There's much room for improvement here Levenger...

Pocketini...slperini is more like it
Over all the quality of the pen isn't up to Levenger's usual standards, it feels plasticy, writes fine and I love the look of it, but it slipped out of my international pocket briefcase and was lost after less than 3 days. It's too expensive for this, and really all it needs is a clip. I won't buy another one

Long on style, short on quality
This pen, because it fits so neatly into my pocket briefcase, (which is wonderful by the way) is a product I want to love, but I don't find its quality consistent with other Levenger offerings. After about a year of use, the ball on the end popped off and nothing I can do will get it to stick back on the cheap plastic threading which holds it on. It's really too bad, because it looks so handsome and earns compliments wherever it goes.

Fantastic and Most Unique Pen Ever
I love this pen and when I saw it was on sale, I purchased two of them! When I received them, I immediately opened the beautiful box and started writing with this fantastic creative instrument! Very smooth and even flowing ink. I like a grip on my pens to prevent slippage, which this pen does not have. When I purchase a pen without a rubber grip, I buy the rubber pencil grips and add it to my pens. I have a pen fetish and so, when I say this pen is fantastic, you can take it from a pen connoisseur, this pen is great! I love the shape and style! It is a true eye catcher!

I recently worked a trade show where I meet and talk with loads of people. This pen fits unobtrusively in my hanging ID pouch with my business cards. It is now officially my "tradeshow pen." And the square shape is just cool.

I have 3 year old Bic pens that write with greater consistency. This pen will regularly cease writing. It is very stylish and practical with the pocket briefcase, except that I can not rely on it. For $38, it is not worth purchasing and I wish I hadn't.

Too Easy to Lose
This pen WILL slip out of the Bomber Jacket Pocket Briefcase; it holds at first, but then slips out very easily as the leather breaks in.
I've already lost mine after just 5 weeks, and that's not even close to daily use...
At $26 bucks a shot, getting a new one every 5 weeks is insane. I'm looking for a cheaper alternative.
