, October 20, 2012
Have now used this pen (silver finish) and three nibs (F, M, B) for about a
year. I'm a 6'2" 200 lb guy and this pen is extremely comfortable in my large
hand. Of all my fountain pens (Sheaffer, Safarfi, Al-Star, Kaweco), this is
clearly a favorite. Most used nibs are F and M but like to work with all three.
Masterpiece in design, construction, reliability and durability. The medal
threads mesh smooth as butter. Capped, the pen is like holding a Cross
ballpoint...about same length, same thickness, just about tenth the weight; also
about same size/wt as Fisher bullet pen. Was skeptical before purchase but the
more I use it the more I appreciate the genius behind it. Even the nibs are
about easiest and most durable I've ever experienced. The small cartridges are
just right size and sturdy enough to refill and use for other inks/colors. All
pen colors are very appealing and ten-star service from folks at JetPens is
unbeatable. Add one or two of these guys to your arsenal...you won't regret it.

Cute as a bugs ear...and it has a beautiful Bock nib that performs very well. A
very light fountain pen, nice finish, machining. Clean the pen with a dilute
solution of ammonia or Dawn liquid detergent and water, rinse well(gets rid of
manufacturing oil). Pat dry. Make sure your feed is lined up with the nib. Load
a Kaweco or Herbin cartridge, tap the nib gently on your paper to get the ink
flowing. Enjoy. Oh and the cap posts perfectly allowing a lot more length to the
Great little fountain pen!

Excellent pen, with a wonderful nib.
I had to flush the nib to get proper ink flow, but from then on in it has been
great. It lays down a consistent line, with a width comparable to a standard

Ink drys almost within 5 minutes and then stops allowing flow, I have to flush
the pen almost everytime I want to use it. I have even switched to fine and
medium nibs with same problem. I dont have the problem nearly as bad however
with the A.G Spalding & Bros mini fountain pen.

Had this pen for quite a while now and I love it. Its form factor allows it to
be transported in a pocket while taking up next to no space. A word of warning,
you need to flush the nib before you write with this pen. I was too eager to use
it and did not, and the ink just wont flow properly until you do. After that,
the writing was smooth without any skips, the line was consistent and thin (you
can have a small amount of width variance if you push into it).
Overall very good pen, a great purchase.
