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!
