I got my Chibi yesterday and oh, it is way cute.
The yellow body is a good quality plastic that
feels more resilient than the typical brittle
styrene that you see in cheap, clear pens. It's
more comfortable in my hand than I expected. Quite
nice, in fact. The nib was okay out of the
package, but one of the tines needed a tweak with
my thumbnail to get it back into alignment. With
this little adjustment, the pen wrote very
smoothly, decent wetness, no skipping so far.I'm delighted because I've been looking for
sturdy, inexpensive fountain pens I can throw into
traveling sketch kits. The barrel has a small hole
at the bottom, so the pen cannot be used as an
eyedropper as is. But I suspect the hole would be
easy to plug with a dab of epoxy. ...
