  I am relatively new to..., February 20, 2011
I am relatively new to the fountain pen sub culture. If you are a beginner as well this review should be helpful. I have only used 4 different Lamy Safaris 2 all star and 2 regular, 1 Lamy Studio, 1 Pilot Prera, and now this pen. I can not quite get what the hype over the Lamy pens seems to be about. I like writing with them but my experience has proved they do not write that well on smooth paper (Rhodia), and the ink shows through on Moleskine paper but does write better than the former. I love the way the pilot pen writes, unfortunately for me it is hard to hold onto. My hand must sweat a little and the grip is so smooth and such a small area it is uncomfortable. But again that is my hand and the pen writes awesome

This pen however, is awesome on both of the above mentioned paper, writes totally smooth, no skipping, and feels great in hand. I am thrilled to be honest. It makes me really happy to write with this pen and I can now embrace this fountain pen love I have been wanting to. Best part of all, this pen is down right CHEAP.

I didn't mention nib size so I will finish with all of the pens I mentioned were fine nibs other than 1 medium Safari. I don't have much to say about that other than I like the fine nibs on all of them better than the medium.

Finally, buy this pen!

  Finer nib then my Lamy..., November 29, 2010
Finer nib then my Lamy Safari, fairly similar in feel, maybe even a little less scratchy then the safari, but that could just be because it is new. Its a decent bit lighter then the safari as well. Its a little more of a highlighter orange then in the pics, maybe almost a bit pink. Had I known this I probably would have gotten the red or the green one. oh well. After this purchase, I have decided sometime I will get the Aluminum version of this pen

  I am lefthanded and this..., June 6, 2011
I am lefthanded and this pen works great! With the cap screwed on, it is the perfect size to fit in a purse or pocket, and the long cap protects the body of the pen from getting crushed accidentally. Posted, it is a normal size. This pen is a performer that puts down a nice wet line. It writes like a more expensive model, although the tip is a little scratchy (it might also be the cheap office paper I use it on). The plastic does feel a little cheap and light for what it cost, considering that the clear model is $6 less for what looks like the same thing. Basically you are paying more to make a fashion statement.

Like some other people mentioned, the 'orange' is more of a pinkish fluorescent orange, the kind of orange that glows under a black light or in the sun. I like that, but other people may not.

I bought it because I am getting quite a stash of international short carts and wanted something a little less expensive to put them in. There is no converter available for this pen, so it's good for someone who doesn't want to bother with bottle filling or has a lot of carts laying around.

Overall I am extremely happy with this pen and recommended it to others, especially people who are intimidated by higher end 'serious' looking pens. This would be a good starter pen for someone who is new to fountain pens.

  I am fond of orange,..., May 31, 2011
I am fond of orange, and this exceeded my expectations by being an almost mercurochrome brilliant clear orange. I love this pen. Plus it writes great on any paper I have tried. Kaweco inks are a little faint for my taste, but the pen accepts any standard short cartridge.
