When I first saw pictures...
, October 14, 2012
When I first saw pictures of this pen, I was not overly enthused with the
plastic look of it but I did like the idea of the pen being see-through, so I
ordered it. And when I did receive the pen, I was pleasantly surprised by its
looks, which appeared to be quite solid and eye catching. There are some nice
classical curves with gives the pen a somewhat refined look. As for the ink
inverter sitting inside of it, well, it’s quite cool. As for the twist cap, it
is made of plastic but it does not feel like it’s going to strip away anytime
Nevertheless, it is the iridium point on this pen that makes it what it is. With
a constant, unperturbed flow of ink, it is any writers dream to write with this

I didn't like this pen very much. Every single part, the nib, the grip, the
plastic body, the converter and cap just felt and looked much cheapter than Lamy
Safari demonstrator which costed me nearly half as much. It didn't write smooth
and was skipping all over the plan. Maybe I got a bad batch because people
generally rate this pen as a good, smooth writer that is also aesthetically
pleasing. I tried flushing, different cartriges and converters and just couldn't
get this to write properly. :(

Got this as a demonstrator to fill with the Diamine Orange ink. It looks really
good, especially when the orange ink fills the feed to give it an orange color.
One thing that's not so great is that when left for a few days, it's really hard
to get it started again. Otherwise a well-built pen.
