I'm not sure this pen is a fountain pen or a gel pen. Either way it's a well designed writing instrument. It's comfortable to hold and it writes beautifully.

A Joy to Use
I am SO glad I took the leap of faith (in Parker and in Levenger's!) and bought this unusual pen. I have poor penmanship after a career of taking notes by hand as a journalist, aggravated by arthritis. So I deeply value how easily this pen glides across the paper (even lesser grades) without being out of control. Its odd shape (which is why it got 4 not 5 on style) turns out to be a virtue because it is very comfortable to hold. Despite its sturdy and high-quality materials, it is also light in the hand and well balanced.
