I recently purchased one of these but am not 100% impressed. I do love the
color, a nice deep green. However the nib is stiff, the pen has a scratchy feel
when writing (not smoothly) and I have to put a lot of pressure to get a
bold/clear line (not a half-faded one).
I may have gotten a bad one, as I have not tried this or any like it before, but
I really dislike the way this pen writes. I may purchase another in a different
color to see if it is an isolated issue.
The nibs on these are stiffer than I imagined they would be, but you can still
get a little bit of line variation. However, I really enjoy the super fine line.
You can cram a LOT of words onto one line, and the ink supply is generous.
And while I bought a pen body to go with the refills I ordered, you don't really
need it unless you have large ends. The refills by themselves make nice, slim
As for the color of this ink, I thought it would be a little darker and perhaps
a bit more desaturated. Oh, it's still dark, but it certainly doesn't match the
colored section portion depicted above--it's slightly more vibrant. Which is why
I gave this pen four stars instead of five. In terms of functionality, it
definitely gets five stars.
