This was my first Japanese...
December 12, 2013
This was my first Japanese fountain pen. I wanted to come back to fountain pens
after leaving them for so long (My first was a Lamy Safari, medium nib, that my
dad gifted to me) and since my handwriting has gotten quite small and neat over
the years, I thought a fine nib would be right. Even though this pen didn't have
the best of reviews, the price was good, and I liked the appearance.
For the price I paid, I'm very happy with it~ I love the colour and style. The
nib, however, doesn't seem to really be a true "fine". It's either a very very
wet fine, or a good medium... It makes my handwriting blur together a bit, since
it's already small... I'm in search of a true fine nib that still looks good and
is student priced ~ However, ink flow is very good, no scratching, and rarely
I'd give it a 3.5, but since there's no half stars, I'll round up to a 4. I
think it's an nice pen for beginning fountain users or people like me, returning
to fountains after a long time.
