The Sheaffer VFM (Vibrant, Fun, Modern) is a basic click pen. It doesn't offer many bells or whistles; however, it is well built for the price. The pen comes in many color options. Some of which include: Glowing Coral, Eclectic Green, Sunlit Yellow, Luminous Lavender, Ultra Mint, Extreme Purple, Chilled Blue, Ultimate Plumb, and Matte Black.
I tested the matte black finish and it looks good. The barrel and nickel plated trim make this an attractive click pen. At a glance, one would think this pen is made of metal, but it is actually made of plastic. The barrel is easy to grip and allows very little slippage. The clicker on this model feels durable and so does the clip.
The Sheaffer refill is decent, but not the greatest. It lays down a smooth line with minimal blobbing; although, I had issues with skipping from time to time. The refill is comparable to the Parker Quink Flow but is actually a tad bit smoother on the page.
Penman's Final Remark:
The Sheaffer VFM is a well-designed pen; however, the refill is nothing to brag about. Even at its $15 price tag, you have to wonder if this is really a good deal.
