Feels great in hand. Love it. Doesn't post well. Writes smoothly.
I got this as a gift for my mom. She's been writing with fountain pens for
years, but she really likes the aesthetics of products for kids. She is in love
with this pen. She said I should give it 4.8 stars out of 5 for her (we'll get
into the -.2 later).
Her favorite thing about it is the grip and the twisted shape of it. The grip is
triangular and comfortable. The twist also means that the body of the pen wrests
flat against the thumb/index webbing of your hand. Further the nib writes really
well and she likes the nice medium line.
Side note: As soon as she saw I had gotten her a Pelikan pen, she was extremely
happy. Apparently they're her favorite calligraphy supply company.
One thing she is not in love with is the security of the cap when posted. It
falls off too easily she claims, so be on the lookout for that. But as I
mentioned earlier, that only accounts for -.2 of her opinion of it.
