Personally, I'm not one to carry a pen in my pocket knowing that it might fall out at the wrong turn. But this one stays. Jeans, slacks, or a suit, you can't go wrong with it. The clip is strong out of the box and unlike most pens, if it gets loose, you can adjust it. Sure, it's not a fountain pen, but I swapped out the given ink cartridge for a Fisher Space pen refill and now I love it that much more. This is something I'm glad I can carry with me when I can't take a blade. It may not cut anything, but it is better than nothing. I highly recommend this to anyone who is tired of those cheap pens that always get lost along the way.
