Not like the Original.
on May 30, 2011
I've used a Stainless Parker Jotter for work since 1990. I've never had a complaint with the original refills. In need of ink on various occasions in the past couple of years I have had to use the Gel Ink. The Gel Ink goes down bold and thick but the tip is not as smooth as the standard refills and the ink is very easily lifted if rain or other liquids come in contact with what you have just written. Another drawback with the amount of ink that gets put down is that a refill may only last a week whereas the original refills would last me months!
This complaint may sound a little extreme but one drop onto the shop floor with the tip extended renders the refill useless. This is in stark contrast to the original refills which occasionally I have dropped 2 or 3 times with no adverse effects to the writing ability.
Hope this is helpfull
