I ordered this pen along with a Pelikan converter and the pairing is great.
There is no hesitation with ink flow and the aesthetically the pen is beautiful.
The orange wood grain mates well with the aluminium it gives the pen a weighty
feel. I prefer to use it posted, and the cap snaps on tight. A great value.

Probably my most favorite pen I own. I have 2 I use them every day for note
taking and general all around writing. They write as smooth as the $180 pen I
got as a gift. They are also good looking enough that people often ask where
they can get one. I alway reply www.jetpens.com. Also your website ROCKS!

I really enjoyed the aesthetics of this pen. But I was hesitant at first to
purchase it because it is manufactured by a sporting good company that isn't
necessarily known for their quality. The limited reviews online of this pen also
made me slightly hesitant as well.
However, I was pleasantly surprised. As a left hander not every fountain pen
works well for me; but this pen actual works great. It has a good design and the
construction is actually top notch. I purchased the Pelikan C499 Fountain
converter with it, and it fits great as if it was made for this pen; It provided
no problems while providing excellent ink flow. I have used a variety of inks
with this pen and the pen handles them all with no problem. The nib provides a
beautifully balanced medium nib that flows very smoothly on copy, notebook, and
expensive paper that I have tried it on.
It writes first time every time with no flow problems. Another concern of mine
was the wood appears to be slick as glass in the photos on the site, and I
thought that it would be a slippery pen and hard to use; but it actually is not.
It has a light shine to the wood but the wood still feels like wood and provides
a good amount of grip so the pen will not slip from your hands, even after long
use. The metal on the pen feels of good quality and is thick.
The cap has a nice firm snap to it when taken off or placed on the pen. Overall
all of my concerns for the pen diminished upon receiving it and using it. It
flushes easily, it writes great. It has a great feel to it. It writes great and
has a really excellent build quality. It is now my everyday pen and it writes
flawlessly every time.
| Very Happy.

I have wanted this pen since I first discovered JetPens last year. I also
purchased a bottle of Platinum Blue/Black and the Pelikan converter
recommended on the product description.
I got an email from customer service telling me the converter was not available.
Elizabeth in customer service helped me select the Kaweco universal converter.
It works great. The pen along with the Platinum ink writes immediately, smooth
(no skipping), and doesn't scratch. It was everything I hoped for.
JetPens, as always THANK YOU for your exceptionally fast shipping and your
excellent customer service. Thank you Elizabeth!
