The only reason...
, April 7, 2013
The only reason that I decided to give this pen two stars is because of the
pen itself. The pen upon receiving wrote very well and very finely. I was
actually thinking of ordering another. Later less than a month after purchase a
big issue came about. When one was to remove the cap from the pen the entire
nib, feed, cartridge, etc. came out. When removing the cap you were only left
with the "writing part" and the barrel.
Yet the thing that disturbed me the most was the return policy of JetPens.
"Items must be in brand new condition, unopened and have their original barcode
sticker, original packaging, etc (if applicable) to qualify for a refund." The
idea of returning something with all of it's original packaging is insane! How
is one to even use the pen without writing with it???!!! Ink also cannot have
been ever run through the pen! Due to this insane return policy I do not see
ordering many other things from Jet Pens in the future!

I got mine in the mail today!! Hurriedly went and put ink to the converter and
stuck it on the pen. At first, i was VERY dissapointed. The pen was writing
horribly. It was very scartchy and skipped 80% of the time. I gave up after
trying to getting it to write properly. I put it aside with the pen capped and
nib down. After about 20 mins i tried it again and voila! It wrote like a dream
with no skipping. I put on j herbin cafe des iles ink and i love it! This pen is
my first non disposable fountain pen, ive been using platinum preppy and pilot
petit 1 for half a year and i thought this pen would be worth a try, and it is!
For only 16 dollars, this pen offers a lot. Sleek design and nicely etched nib
and an aluminum barrel! Usually u can only get plastic barrelled f-pens with
this amount of money! I highly recommend this awesome pen to fountain pen

Received mine today. Writes nicely. I'm still getting used to the very fine nib.
I've used mostly medium nibs so I'm not sure if the slight scratchiness I feel
is just to be expected with a nib the fine. Good ink flow, works well with a
converter. A rather light weight pen but expected at the price. I think I'm
going to like it just fine. Really can't beat it at the price.

Was a bit leery when I received the pen as it had astrip of dried glue stuck to
it & the metal part of the nib was out of line with the black plastic part of
the feed underneath. However, it was easy to straighten & hasn't drifted out of
alignment yet. It also writes beautifully and smoothly with the included black
cartridge. Not the finest of the fine nibs -- by Japanese-manufactured standards
-- but doesn't bleed where others do. Looks & performs like a pen costing at
least double. Yet to try it with the Ohto adapter...
