Opinion:

Pros:

The UNO has a very unique feel. First of all, I obviously like metal pens but normally I get ones that are a bit larger and have texture to them. The UNO is thin and smooth. That being said, it is comfortable to hold, and I do not feel like it is going to get out of my hand. While I prefer click mechanisms, I enjoy the twist mechanism because it feels right on this pen. I have to say that my favorite part of this pen is the small point size, I love a small point and this one writes and flows very smoothly with an elegance. Lastly, as has become a must for me over the last couple of years, I pretty much only buy pens that are refillable and the UNO offers a very simple changing system.


Cons:

While I like the UNO, there are a couple of things that prevent me for carrying it frequently. First and foremost is the absence of a pocket clip. I completely understand that it would completely throw the look and feel of the design but it is still something that affects me. Also, I have noticed that it is incredibly easy to accidentally loosen the tail screw that holds in the ink cartridge.


Conclusion:

I wish that I could carry the UNO more often but unfortunate it is mostly relegated to an at home pen due to the lack of a pocket clip. That being said, it is still a really nice pen and feels classy in your hand.
