Regarding this pen and...
Regarding this pen and considering some reviews on it, I can say that I am
(together with a few?) a happy owner. Being a compulsive buyer, I bought 3 at
once, fearing I could let one fall onto the floor and thus I would have another
handy. And I was right.
It has a sleek, modern design, without all those burlesque, expensive (and
sometimes to me, annoying) make-up that many expensive pens do have and I really
enjoyed this pen. The only cons I can see is the size, and it´s not a matter of
hand size but rather, taste. If this pen were slightly shorter, I could rate it
Putting the size aside, this pen is very good for daily use. I had no bad
experience with the nib, it writes good, does not scratches neither drag.
Unfortunately, some buddies did not like it. Well, I can say that the quality of
the writing does not depend upon the nib only, but the paper and the ink do play
a (an important) role.
I am using Trident´s Universal Black ink, which leaves a uniform trace, it does
not fade into any gray tonality. And please remember that different types of ink
*do* influence the quality of your writing of the *same* pen. When I write on
plain paper (the majority being porous), it writes averagely (and towards a good
writing), but on glossy paper, it´s like butter.
I had no problem with any of the mechanical parts of this pen so far (I´ve had
bought it some 3 months ago and use it on a daily basis) and taking into account
the size, nib, material, weight, I can say that, at least to me, this pen is
very good for a day-to-day usage, and just like many other pen, it favors a
cursive writing flawlessly (at least in my experience). As an overall and final
comment, I can say I am satisfied, do not regret my purchase.
