Wow, where do I begin?...
November 18, 2015
Wow, where do I begin? I am so stoked about this pen. It's an amazing writing
instrument; I had all but given up on using pens at all except for my legal
signature because I cannot stand the way ballpoint, gel ink, felt-tip, etc. feel
or write. I love the broad nib. It's slightly more broad than my writing when
using my 0.9mm pencil, however it feels amazing to use - it's what writing
*should* be. I've had this pen for a little over a week, and I'm stoked (oops,
I already saw that!).
The pen is light and at first felt a little on the small-side, however it sits
nicely in my briefcase with my 0.7mm Kerry Pencil from Pentel, and isn't too
much shorter. I recommend getting the clip (I'm ordering one today), just to
help keep track of the pen. It has not leaked, and the only issue I've had was
of my own doing - I left the pen open on my notebook for an hour at work and
when I tried to make a new note, the nib was a bit dry. As long as I re-cap it,
it's fine and I haven't had any issue whatsoever. In fact, I want to buy a few
more pens to keep around for use, because I cannot stand the idea of having to
write with an inferior product such as a ballpoint or gel-ink pen.
I relate to feeling to Star Wars (or, A New Hope for you young'ns) where Obi Wan
explains the light saber to Luke. This Kaweco Fountain Pen is a writing
instrument from a more civilized age, not nearly as clumsy or random as a
ballpoint or gel ink pen.
