This pen is very nice!...
This pen is very nice! A little slippery to hold though, so not good for pen
tricks, ha. My friend recommended it to me when I wanted to try out fountain
pens for the first time. It's definitely beginner-friendly (as long as you're a
responsible, sensible user) and ink cartridge installation is a breeze.
The ink itself flows pretty consistently, with very faint scratchiness if you
write at extreme angles. Right now I'm using the original ink included in the
pen (it comes with 2 cartridges in the body) and it's a nice solid black, though
sometimes it comes out watery. But I think that's only because I dropped it
once, and something came loose (it made a weird metal jingling noise whenever I
shake it or tilt it now). Not to mention the nib became bent off-center so I had
to gently use my fingers to maneuver it back into place. (It was surprisingly
cooperative.) Before the fall, the ink flow was virtually perfect.
Though...funny thing is, I accidentally dropped it again a few days ago, and the
jingling noise disappeared. Hopefully whatever it was fixed itself!
Overall, I'd rate this pen to be reliable, classy, and portable. I also like how
it's a lot lighter than it looks, so my hand doesn't get tired when writing it.
Treat it well (as in, better than I do) and it'll serve you faithfully.
