April 8, 2013
I ordered this pen because many reviews said it was a good, smooth, everyday pen
- and it is. The nib doesn't scratch and the ink flow is very good. Of course, I
rinsed it thoroughly before inserting the cartridge. As many people know (as I
did before purchasing), it only takes short international cartridges. I tried my
mini Monteverde converter, but it was too narrow and didn't stay in place.
I ordered the broad nib because hoping that it would be close to my Retro 51
fountain pen, which I love, and it is very close (though not quite as bold as
the Lamy Safari broad). It's a short pen and very light and comfortable to hold.
Good for every day writing.
