This is a plastic barreled/capped pen with a design twist. Roughly 3/4 of the way down the pen towards the area you would grip to write the pen actually gets thinner in width. This plus a nice rubber grip area makes the Jimnie a really nice pen to hold during long periods of writing. The plastic design adds further to the writing experience as it makes the Jemnie light in weight. There is a good ink flow even though it lays a tad too wet on the page for my own personal taste. There seems to be a drying time for the ink that you have to be aware of to avoid smudging, especially with left handed users.
After extended use of the Jemnie I did become aware of feed back that the ink refill was producing. The only way I can describe it is to imagine that the ink refill is just slightly smaller that the pen barrel. It’s a very small issue but one that my “OCD” keeps noticing all the time now!
Over all this is a very good budget pen that would serve you well for everyday use.
