This pen came in the Bureau Vintage Stationery Gift Bundle (green), which comes with a small Clairefontaine 1951 Le Carnet notebook, this refillable rollerball pen, and a tin of J. Herbin Vert Pré ink cartridges. Packaging will vary as an individual purchase.
This roller ball pen is quite small unposted, so if you have larger hands, it's going to be a bit of a challenge to write with! For me, I can handle the small size, but it is more comfortable posted. The section is pretty small and although there is a plastic ridge that sticks out closer to the tip, I still find the section to be very slippery and my grip slides.
This is a decent, inexpensive roller ball pen that is worth a shot, especially if you like fountain pen inks (and colours). Whether you like fountain pens or not, it's handy to have.
