This is my everyday pen, so much so that I wore the nib down now that it has a blunt side and a sharp side (after a year and a half of 4-5 pages of writing). I think I need a new one and will buy another one. I am using the converter and primarily using noodler's permanent and it does not bleed through other pages even with the fact that it is a calligraphy pen. There is some bleed through with the noodler's eel ink though it is a bit more viscous.

Its built strong and has not cracked or shattered with repeated use and sticking with heavy books in my messenger bag. Hell even the pelikan logo has not wore down that bad.

Got this in my last order, and I absolutely love it. It's still the ink cartridge that was sent with it, and it doesn't come with a shmancy ink converter or nib cleaner or anything, but it does work beautifully and has a very nice feel to it.
I'm slowly but surely choosing pelikan as my favorite fountain pen company to buy from.
The ink in the included cartridge is a blue-black, and I like using it for everyday writing, because the tip is small enough to not lay down too much ink that it bleeds through paper, but still a nice calligraphy nib for letter-writing and the like.
Heartily recommended to anyone who's making the transition from a regular fountain pen to a calligraphy pen. or starting out in calligraphy.

Nice pen. Not sure why other reviewer was having ink flow problems. Writes very smoothly and ink flows well. Only problem I have with this pen is that 1.0mm nib writes Broader than the Lamy 1.1mm. If you want tighter pen strokes get the Lamy 1.1mm Joy fountain pen instead of this one.

I wish I liked this pen. I have trouble getting a smooth ink flow from the pen unless I write excruciatingly slowly.
