This Titanium pen legit is great. It has no grip but because of the finish it has (seems brushed) and probably because of the metal it feels somewhat sticky. The weight is great, not heavy but with heft and light enough to maneuver with ease. The one slight disappointment was the click mechanism. I attributed it to the Titanium. It was not reliable. It would click good once or twice then it got stuck and so on. I opened the mechanism and gave it two cleanings. The first was not that thorough, just cleaned the inside with a q-tip and that helped some. The second time I cleaned the pen more thoroughly and added some bike oil to the mechanism. That and the fact that it is now broken in (after about a month) and the mechanism is working great. I have a Tuff Writer Retro and a Billet Spin both in Titanium but this Modern Fuel is just nicer more elegant if you will.
